HPA forums spam attack??

The last 2 weeks I have had a webpage pop up EVERY time I click on a new topic, change thread or forum. It actually takes me off of HPA and to another site, saying I won a free app.....

I couldn't think of where to post this-anyone have a way to fix this?

I sincerely hope this is not a new way of advertising bc it's a total nuisance-

No, not a form of advertising. Sounds like you picked up some form of Malware. Try running one of the free malware and adware removal tools.
One of our laptops had the same thing a few months ago. Strange thing was that it was only happening when using Chrome. I ran Norton and it took care of it.

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.
