No popups for me in FF or IE (FF3.5.5 and IE8)
it seems that every time i post somthing like this to try and help out everyone seems to flood me with "my system is infected" it clearly isnt i dont like to bother with nonsence ad blocking programs and what not mainly becuase i keep conscious about were i am on the net. i know you all are just trying to help but belive me i know what an infected system is, i work on them all day long, its my job fixing computers.
if you'd actually take the time to look closely at the ad you'd noticed what it says and notice in the top right hand corrner that its linked to the proactive ad in the main banner on the site.
im only trying to point out that it could be a security risk to less savvy users that may get "confused" if it were to say not just be a little ad asking me how i rate their product and instead be a browser takeover and tell me my system is "infected" and "download protection here"
just trying to help dont take me wrong you all mention good solutions to very real probloms but again im only trying to help and im not infected
I got it once or twice. Also I just got a popup on this forum a few minutes ago.
No pop ups at this end
never had a popup at TPU
I've had a mod pop up once or twice, but never an ad.
does PM popups count?
the forum has no ads or ad code, so there can't be popups. must be something else. i'll look into what could cause a popup on the main site
could be a script from an ad to cause the pop up.
noscript pluggin for firefox would sort that out.
on the main site yes, but not on the forum. there are no ads there so nothing can cause anything
Well I'm fine with my adware then. hasn't caused enough problems for me to care yet.
no i just get this http://clk.madisonlogic.com/clk?pub...2125&ast=6460&cmp=1180&crv=5021&pos=1&frm=257
i really don't understand his problem is he being asked for money?
where's that url from ? from the popup or the regular banner ?
sorry w1zz i was trying to get it to show on the screen
it's the code from inside the normal banner from High Availability with Oracle Database 11g Release 2
i'm in the uk and that's the only thing that shows
still i think he needs to try Malware bytes
no need to post something that's not broken the ads are very location dependant indeed that's why it's hard for me to test or verify
it was just showing the banner and a link but when you clicked the link it just showed an ad within the banner but no link after that
the code was from right clicking and going to properties
i'm running kaspersky 2009 so maybe it's killing the links
dont use ie i havent used ie in years i use k meleon a mozilla based browser. no pop ups or any kind of ads on my end.
that was the old way of doing it, but it was smart, and tracked by IP address per day. I get the same type of popups, but only from this site. More specifically, there will be a double underline on a word, and when you mouse over it, it will bring up a little bubble-window, that will go away after you mouse off of the object. TPU is the only place I see it, and it can get annoying, because they are buggy, and sometimes never close, and no way to close them. I am also very sure there is no adware of any sort on this computer.
oh that thing.
I get that on various websites, but not on TPU in IE or firefox
Does browser really matter? Can't scripts be run on any browser?
Browser + plugins = different behaviour
sure they can run on any browser, doesnt mean they work the same
well the browser i use doesnt have active x capability, so i dont have to worry about ie security holes.
glad to see im not the only one that got that now
