Default What the F***?????

What's with all the pop-ups and redirects lately on the forum?!?!?!?!? I can't even scroll or control what I am trying to look at!!!

I'm not getting them on any other site, so I must assume that it is originating here!!!!!

Anyone else having this problem??????

I know what you mean, It is way out of hand.
I am thinking it is DSTURBD-ing, No pun intended...lol
With all the re-directs all it does is slow down your enjoyment..

Yeah, with every mouse-click I get another round of pop-ups, redirects, and "long running script" events!!!!!!

As a ten year + member, I hate to say this but it's true; this will drive me away in very short order!!!! Not gonna put up with it!!!

I have not seen them here. They are bad on the Duramax truck forum though.

I hear ya Bill and that is sad beyond words!!!!! I am a Business teacher and I can't even think how I would present or justify this strategy to a class of students given that we talk about product quality, service quality, integrity of business models, etc., etc.

I had a similar issue a few weeks ago on here and other sites. Did a system restore on my computer and its been fine since. Can't say for sure but IIRC the problem developed after a Windows update.

When this happens to me, I usually restore my computer back to a earlier set-up date and it fixes it. (Windows 7 - go to maintenance)
