Is it just me but lately is thisarrow-10x10.png site full of redirects, popups, dodgy banners and highlighted underlined words with little green circle and arrows?

 

I've run various anti spyware and got adblockers, cleared history many times, but it still happens and only on this site.

 

Anyone else having this problem?

Not to me but probably mod/pro has an extra level of protection.

I do remember something like this happening a couple of years ago though. It got fixed.

Send a report with an example.

I have had this in the past, and it was something on my local PC, not the site

 

got to www.fosshub.com and try a few of the anti mall ware apps

 

Note, It can be very hard to get rid of

It's more than likely adware on your pc. Go into your install/uninstall and have a look at anything was installed around the same time the spam started.

I've been using malwarebytes for a few years, paid version, haven't had a hijack or a malware since.

This has beaten me.

I have run lots of spyware programs.  Hitman, Malawarebytes, Spybot, Zemana, and others in full startup and in safe mode.

 

I have reset browsers. I have looked for dodgy looking programs. I don't click on sus emails and haven't downloaded anything lately.  I tried to do a system restore but couldn't get it to finish properly. Piece of shit Win10

I get this or similar when I use either Firefox, Chrome, or Explorer and only when I go on AHB.  I reckon Exploer even starts talking to me!  That's a phone camera shot because all you can do is end program through task manager.

The only browser that works ok is Edge.

 

The spyware programs I have used were all free so maybe I need to pay for one.  It depresses me having to pay for stuff like that.

 

Edge is working at the moment for me but I am still not happy with it being on my machine.  Maybe when I have a spare half a day I can scrub it and start again.
