I keep getting a malware popup on the site. It's directing me to install some program. Is anyone else getting it?

I do not even see ads here when NOT logged in. Like this morning. Forumotion must have done something over night so I had to log in. No biggie for me. That usually just indicats they updated something. Some bug fix maybe. But I run LinuxMint and Firefox with all the Adblock stuff.

No pop-ups (or pop-unders).
Using Ghostery, No Script, BitDefender (anti-ransomware), and a host file.
See:
http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/
for an explanation of how a host file works...

Lately I've noticed several forums I visit log me off automatically at the end of the month.

I haven't had any problems,,,running Kaspersky Security.

I get logged off regularly, say once/month. Seems to be the same deal on other boards. Must be a feature of their software program, despite how often one posts. NBD.

In addition to having Ad Block Plus I also installed Malware bytes. There's a free edition you can use for I believe 25 days then you need to buy it. Seems like it was less than $30 for a year. It prevents most malware from getting in your computer. So far it has been the best anti malware program I've used. I don't get any pop-ups, banners, and etc, since adding Malware Bytes. You can download it here:

When I'm using the full site on any Android device it gets me. Saying I have spyware on my device, it locks up my browser. I don't have any issues using the 'mobile app' site. Sure, it's stripped down, but no ads, no pop-ups....

Seemed to be a rather long page load earlier today. I got the banner at the top but no page for up to 30 seconds, and the info at the bottom of the page with the source was highly suspicious. Yet the page did eventually load with no ads or pop-ups. Interestingly, the scroll button on the keyboard would not work while the mouse did!?

Seems to be back to normal now though. I put it down to Adblock Plus working like it should. A great relief!
