    Default Advert popups

    Am I the only one that gets advertisements open in new windows almost every time I click anywhere on the forum ?

    I don't think you should be getting those past the first page……I'll flag this for Admin, see what they say.

    Check for spyware and viruses bud.
    Malwarebytes and superantispyware are both free and the scans should clean your system .

    Piriform's CCleaner is also free and will clean and speed up your system too.

    I had similar few weeks ago, for example on anything inc BBC website clicking on a picture or story another tab opened with some dubios content.
    Luckily I recently had a restore-point to roll back to. Then it was a case of running Windows update to make sure all ok.

    I've had a look at this and can't see anything that would be causing it on BcUK, it's worth having a look at your machine and checking, we'll do some more tests on here and see what we come up with.

    I'm also presuming that we're talking about this site and not the dev site that this thread is focused on? I'll probably split this conversation off into its own thread...

    I'd suspect it's in your machine rather than on the site. To be on the safe side though I can recommend getting Ghostery for Google Chrome and also Adblock. Disable the latter for sites you wish to support such as BCUK, the former cuts down on trackers and rubbish that plagues you online.

    Also might be worth clearing the cache.

    Sounds like you are definitely infected with a malware or spyware, if the link leshy provided does not do the job then i would install Avast Anitvirus the free version again is all regular users will ever need, get the free version for your system either mac, windows or android, run a full scan not a quick scan and if after restarting it is still doing it go into the avast menu and look for the option to run a pre boot scan, this shuts down your computer and scans it before windows boots up and it usually gets everything.

    Just in case you were wondering, i would not connect a computer to the internet at all without first having malware bytes anti malware and Avast free version installed, and the very first thing i would do when i connected to the internet after installing these two programs is update to the latest versions of both, i call them internet condoms as you'll never know what you will catch going online without them or something as good.

    Not so sure I believe that last bit...
    I bet you make a mean cup of tea.

    Not to mention that I reckon you'd be throwing the best office parties the corporate world has ever seen ....😎😁

    I don't want to throw this thread off topic due to its importance to the OP and his annoying problem. Is it ok to PM you regarding security on a MacBook Pro as I transfer pics over from a Windows system? I wasn't going to bother due to the rarity of bugs and blemishes on OS.

    Sounds like you have a browser hijacker in your system. Have a read through this and see if it might work for you. It's the nuclear option!

Because I installed new wifi about 10 days ago and I don't remember for how long but not long after is that this problem started and now today I logged on bcuk from my phone , it has never done this and never on other sites and when I visited this forum straight away it did the same , opened an ad in new video with same link before it opened onclickrev.com , any ideas what is happening ?

    Ah, ok. I changed over from Windows after my Vista loaded lappy bit the dust. IOS and Windows don't play nice together and I lost a ton of music.

    Gcckoka, onclickrev is a virus, and not a nice one.

    Install Avast like I said earlier and run a Boot Time Scan, can't help you further mate as this is the solution
