I'm on line reading an article and in the middle of a paragraph and suddenly the page jumps to the bottom of the screen to an advertisement. I try to scroll back up to where I was reading and BAM! it does it again...slams me back to the bottom of the screen to the advertisement. I then try to scroll back up to the article and where I left off and maybe read another sentence or two and BAM it does it again. Sometimes this happens five or six times during the time I'm trying to read an article. It's as if someone or some power is taking command of my screen and slamming me to the bottom of the page to an advertisement.

 

Is anyone having the same experience....why is this doing this....and how can I fix it???

It's driving me crazy.

Is it happening at all sites or just a particular site?  I'm thinking that if it isn't limited to one site you've probably got some kind of infection.

 

Have you tried a different web browser?

harkcomp,

 

It is driving me nuts too.  But for me, it has nothing to do with ads the page just jumps around.

 

I had thought the issue was either the ad block I use or the continuous loop of installation failures of update.

 

Are you using Edge?  I am using IE.

Download Hitman Pro malware removal program. Register for free trial in the program with a email address. Run a scan. I think this will fix your problem/infection.

I don't think it necessarily has anything to do with a particular advertisement. I have Windows 10. In order to go on line I click on Edge and then do a search for Ixquick.com in order to avoid the Edge snooping and then search through Ixquick to go read my emails and online news and participate in blog conversations. It is here that I run into this page jumping problem.

On Windows 10 is there a way to access the internet without going through Edge? I'm still very new to Windows 10. I use Ixquick because it does not do any tracking of activity or collect any personal info for M.S. to use.

I'm presently using Webroot as my PC protection. Shouldn't that catch any malware that might come through?

There may be an easier way to do it but I accessed the internet through Edge then went to my preferred home page, then Tools (Gear symbol upper right), internet options and set it as my home page. I then went to "File Explorer; This PC; Local Disk C; Program Files; Internet Explorer; found iexplore.exe; right click, create shortcut" and placed the IE shortcut on my desktop so that I can skip Edge and go directly to IE

You can use Edge, one last time to download Firefox or Chrome. Both of those browsers have Ad-block. Just make sure that, when your choice asks if you want it to be your default browser, you say "Yes", and you'll never have to see Edge, again.

Hitman pro is superior and something else. It detects unknown infections due to behaviour analysis. It can be used as your only virus scanner with a manual scheduled scan once a day so you don't need a virus killer running so faster PC. Due to its sophistication it will find malware no other anti malware will find and remove it. Just use unregistered trial and run scan to find.

Guaranteed nothing will find anything more than Hitman Pro. If Hitman Pro won't find nothing else will. There is also Hitman Pro alert so get both.

Other good anti malware are Emmisoft Anti Malware and Malware Bytes.

Page moving could be the tip of the iceberg and other possible bad are going on. Once free of infection then you can use Adguard

Also look at what addons you are running in the browsers and check there is no proxy redirection in the browser settings.

In case you may not know, Microsoft feeds ads to your browser by default but you can turn it off. This could be what you are experiencing

 

This should be of some help

 

If it is not this then it could be an infection.


People who don't know what they are talking about will provide arguments instead of any valid proof to their claims...

If you have the microsoft pro 3 the new touch pad is super sensative.

 

The same thing happens to me on everything because I accidentily touch the touch pad.

 

It is the same as clicking the corasponding spot on the screen with a mouse.
