Yea, I got it twice today. I guess it's spam. It refused to close!

I checked to be sure my auto update was working.

I can get it to close. It seems to be a new advertiser on here. I notice when it pops up, it is in the rolling ads at the top of the page......sigh

Ok, you guys are using Firefox, but do you have the Adblock extension installed? Firefox is what I use and I'm not getting any popup ads here anymore.

Must be an Ohio thing since I'm not having a problem either. :knocking on wood:

Greg are you sure it's not the excessive "pron" thing I mentioned a few days ago? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: WINFIXER popup ????

For anyone that has DSL or Cable Internet I highly recommend getting a cheapy (about $100) router. There's a limited firewall built in and it will also provide connectivity for multiple computers.

I don't see any of that crap at home because my firewall blocks it.

When a new one does come up I simply get the domain and add it to the list of blocked sites on the router.

I prefer Netgear but D-Link or Linksys will work as well as several others I don't remember the brand name.

Re: WINFIXER popup ????

True a router has a firewall but it only block some things. And popups is not one of them.

Side note: I have a router.

Its java crap thats poping up.
