Is anyone else getting pornographic and other leud* pop-ups when they try to access this wonderful forum?  I have gotten them on three different computers today.

*One example being ads for online dating services.

Download spybot and ad-aware, run them and clean your PC.

Or switch to an operating system that doesn't harbor spyware advertisements.

We don't utilize any pop ups or advertisements on this site.

Mozilla is a excellent choice, I use it quite often due to that #### IE browser.

Dating & porno hmm.................. I don't think so.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

I'm sure it was due to someone else using the computers and inadvertantly downloading spyware.  If it happens again, let the person in charge of the computer lab know about it.
