Anyone else getting an ad when they try to get onto the forum . I am getting a full screen ad . I actually don't mind if it helps WG generate revenue so they don't have to sell OP prems .

 

Moved to a more appropriate subforum.

Nope.  I have adblocker on, though.

Nope. Don't think I'm using anything special either. Hmmm.

Hello,

 

I believe you have adware (a virus that targets your device to show ads on).

 

Assuming you are using a computer, please download both Malwarebytes AdwCleaner and Malwarebytes anti-virus from here: https://www.malwareb...com/adwcleaner/ and https://www.malwarebytes.com/products/ (get the home version for Windows and just click download for the free version).

 

Once both are downloaded, run AdwCleaner and update the database, once updated do a scan for any adware,  (potentially unwanted programs), and any browser hijackers. If anything is found, do a review of them to make sure they are not something you use as sometimes it can detect a PUP that you do use. If anything there doesn't seem familiar to you in the log, you may delete the items from your computer.


After AdwCleaner is done, install Malwarebytes anti-virus and update the database, then run a full scan to check for any leftovers. Just click on Scan on the program and select custom scan, configure the scan to scan for rootkits and then select the drives you have installed and click scan. Once it's found and it finds anything, do another review of the items and delete anything that isn't familiar to you.

 

If you need further assistance, please let me know.
