The last couple of days I've started getting these really really f'ing annoying pop up ads that appear when I'm on mumsnet. The first time I jumped out of my skin and couldn't work out who was talking to me and now I can't stand it anymore. Also when I click to go into a thread I now often end up on another advert. What the hell is going on?? Please help!! I've only noticed these strange goings on when I'm on mumsnet.
Hi gloria - could you possible take a screenshot and upload it here next time it happens? Also, the name of the brand, and the URL of any web-page the ad links through to, helps us to track these things down more quickly.
Hi and sorry I'm just getting back to you now. I think I may have sorted it thanks to an IT friend. It appears that a dodgy adware attached itself to my laptop called 'mega browse' and for some reason it was only popping up when I was on the mumsnet page. I've removed it so hopefully that's the end of it. It was a nasty one though and who knows where I got it from. Sorry Mumsnet for blaming you!
