I don't have any pop up ads. Could you have some adware or malware installed on your computer?
Hi Dee,

I'm afraid we can't take credit for those. That appears to some malware or a toolbar upgrade that many of our members were exposed to. We have not been able to pinpoint the cause. This post by CreativeArtandSoul outlines some effective methods for addressing the problem.


Let us know if it works for you so we can spread the word. Thanks!
I just ran the scanner, deleted cookies, everything is good, I noticed someone else is getting them too, it comes on when your clicking on an item/

pop up are blocked/
ok Matt,
Matt, I have microsoft can I still run these?
There is another thread going about this problem, I have it today. Just now a Pottery Barn ad and a Hilton Hotel ad popped up on the upper quarter of my page.
Yes, there are PC versions for nearly all adware programs. They usually make it very easy to see which version you should download.
ok, I cleared cookies, shut it off, and ran my cc cleaner, my scanner, still pop ups/
trying to figure out which one of those to run that you gave, the first one looks like you pay, checking out the second one/
Matt if you should pin point please, let us know, have done all I can think of. Thanks Dee
