      Original post

      last few days when I visit the site, I'm getting video 'pop ups' of advertisements -in my lower right hand corner of computer

        Thanks for that.

        I'm assuming you are referring to visits to this message board, not the main site?

        To the best of our knowledge it isn't a feature of our site/service.

        No-one else has reported anything similar.

        Before we report it onwards, a few questions which you can reply here in this topic or, if you prefer, by Private Message.

        Do you visit the site on a variety of devices, if so are you seeing the same thing on all of them.?

        What device do you see the pop-ups occurring on?

        What browser do you use when you see this - i.e. Firefox, Internet Explorer etc?

        What operating system do you use? - PC or Mac, and if PC which version - Windows Vista, Windows 7 or earlier.

        However it is most likely a virus or malware you have picked up in your internet travels so running any standard virus/malware scan should be your personal starting point.

        Let us know how you get on.
