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.
