pop up ads

Several times in the last 15 minutes on different forums I was getting popup ads when I hit the back button or click on a new topic or thread. Tried to paste a screen shot but it doesn't work. Ad was for Walmart, use back button and redirects to yet another ad. Have to close page to get back to HPA

Can you tell me a few specifics? What browser to you have, how did the ads appear, did they change the site, did they open in a new window?

these ads sound like they're regionally targeted. I'm not getting any on my Edge browser.

can you send us a screen shot and the re-direct URL the next time this happens? We'll need your ip as well. if you don't want to post it in public, send us a PM.
