For the past week or so, whenever I visit certain pages in IE (IE11), I get an ad that takes up the whole screen. I can't close the ad until a good 5-10 seconds later. Either I can let the ad load up and then close it, or click anywhere in the page and I will get an "Internet Explorer has stopped running due to a long-running script." I can click "Stop Script", which immediately loads up the ad and then I can close it.


I tried wiping out my internet history, cache, and cookies, to make sure nothing bad was in there, I did a full MBAM scan, and I even re-installed Adobe Flash.


Here is what the "ad" looks like while it is loading up. I can't close out of it during this process.


I also only get this on my laptop and not my desktop, both of which are running Windows 7 64-bit.

What certain pages are you visiting when the ad comes? Make sure your Java and Adobe Shockwave is updated as well.

Lets isolate the issue


Where does the ad show in the following situations? Visit the same page

On your laptop in IE

On your laptop in Mozilla Firefox/Chrome or Safari

On your desktop in IE

On your desktop in Mozilla Firefox/Chrome or Safari

If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.

 IE is buggy.  Most folks I know use Firefox and/or Chrome.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

Tim, you might consider installing AdBlockPlus.  It works like a charm for me in Chrome and it may solve your problem in IE 11.

WinXP Pro sp3 \ Firefox, Panda, MBAM, SAS, SpywareBlaster

I would like to second that recommendation! AdBlockPlus works like a charm!
