Do You Have Ad's Popping up In The Forum Thread's?

Started 1344262665.01 in Viewpoints | Last reply 1344528115.457 by Thingamajig

Recently I've been getting ad's popping up when my cursor passes over certain words in the threads. It can be anything. The last one was the word wrinkle, and an ad for wrinkled skin popped up. When reading the threads, certain words are in color, instead of black font. Those colored words are the ones that bring up the ad's. These ad's have nothing to do with QVC products.

Is anyone else seeing these pop up ad's in the threads?

Also, there's a drop down window that is in the upper right side of the screen. If the cursor goes over it, the window pops up with a list of QVC ad's. It says coupons, but I haven't seen any coupons yet.

No, I don't have anything like that.

I just read my post, and the words "wrinkled" and "coupons" are both in blue font, and the ad's pop up when my cursor goes over them.

I just wondered if this is something that is only on my computer, or if everyone is seeing it? TIA

ROMARY and brii,

Thank you for telling me! I must have picked up some kind of virus.

Do you not have the QVC drop down window either?

I don't know if it's a virus. Maybe you have to adjust your pop up setting or something.

google "words highlighted in color on forums"..... it sounds like you have some type of adware/malware on your computer and you should probably do a virus scan to check it out.

There is nothing blue in your original post that I see-

Thank you everyone!

I ran my malware scan and now the colored font words are gone, but the drop down window that says QVC coupons is still there. I called C.S. and they said it's not from them. The other thing that is still there (I forgot to mention this one before) is a little box with QVC's logo, that pops up in the top center of QVC's page, when I first come in.

I'll have to run a more extensive scan.

Thanks to everyone's response's, I know I have something to work on.

If you use Google Chrome browser, install the AdBlock option. I was getting them too but now they are gone.

No, I have my browser set to prevent them.

Now that I think about it, the ads only appear on my desktop and they started after someone was accessing their FaceBook page............yet another reason not to subscribe imho.

Not yet.{#emotions_dlg.confused1}
