    Can someone explain why I'm getting pop up ads when I'm writing a reply to a post.:Eek!::Sad::Doh::Eeek:

    When this happens I loose everything I've typed:Angry::Angry::Angry::Angry::Angry::Angry:

    It has happened four times in the last week:Angry::RollEyes:

    Never happens on other web site forums

    Today it was some loan company advertisement 'Sun Money' or some such name

    Very annoying, especially if I've just spent ten minutes composing and typing a long reply to someone :Angry::RollEyes:

    This is easily solved - compose using word/notepad/anything then cut and paste to your email.

    If that fails you have something really nasty on your PC.

    Yep, you've been infected with adware. Try downloading and installing Adaware, it should get rid of the pop-ups. They are harmless but really annoying.

    Think Paul might be right.

    There are loads of free ad removal apps available but I use Ad Aware, SuperAntiApyware, Malwarebytes Anti Mal ware and spybot S&D - not all at the same time, of course. It surprising what gets missed if only using one.

    Links:
    SUPERAntiSpyware.com | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!
    Ad-Aware by Lavasoft - Antivirus software, free spyware removal, firewall
    The home of Spybot-S&D!
    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

    It takes a while to run them all, but if it clears the rubbish, it's time well spent.

    A while ago I had an infection that seemed immune to all these as well as CCleaner.
    CCleaner - Home
    Eventually I spent a bit of money and kicked it into touch with RegCure. I believe that there was a scam running involving the name RegCure, but the product I'm using seems to be the genuine article.

    RegCure Registry Cleaner

    Hope some of this is useful.
