I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. I have up to date Kaspersky running and never open and email,

images or visit sites that do not conform to W.O.T. approval.


The only web browser I use is Chrome. I have popups blocked in the settings but I am still getting them.

I have ran many different scanners for Malware, Rootkits, Spyware, and Adware - Nothing shows.


I even get a popup when going to this site

Here is what the popup looks like when I load this page at Bleepingcomputer.com




I downloaded and ran FSS, every box checked here is the resulting file:

**** End of log ****
Can anyone take a look and help me out?
Thanks in advance

Do you have the adguard extension installed for Chrome?

The image you posted of this page tells me that you are NOT signed in to Bleeping Computer when you open the page.

The red band at the top ia what one sees when not signed in.

Because you are NOT signed in the ads will pop up.

It clearly states that one of the benefit of having an account is

having no ads shown anywhere on the site


The Adguard extension for Chrome linked to by JohnC_21 will stop the pop up you see if you are not signed in to Bleeping Computer.

I knew there was something else addressing ads here when not signed in and had to find it. (bold red mine)

BleepingComputer is paid for completely by advertisement revenue and the staff are all volunteers. What this means is that any support and advice you receive from this site is completely free. Sounds like a good deal, right? Let's make it sweeter then; as a registered user you will also no longer see any ads at all on this site!


Taking Bleeping Computer out of the equation, can you give a couple of examples of what the ads are for when you go to other sites?
