Default Does anyone else have this problem? (pretty serious)

Whenever I come to the forums of Prowrestlingfans, I'll be checking topics and minding my own business, and suddenly I'll get 62 popups. Sometimes it's 58 or 63 but it's around there. And it crashes my comp half the time. I was thinking it might have to do with my new MSN pop up blocker but that's merely a theory, but I've heard no one else complain of this. It's pretty serious and if it keeps happening I'm pretty much skrewed from coming here on a regular basis.

Is it not happening to anyone else? I just think it's odd if I'm the only one this shit is happening to.

I have gotten maybe 1 pop up in the last month off this site and I don't use any pop up blockers. Must be your computer.

It's happened to me about 6 times now. Honestly I'm as confused as anyone, and it only happens in this discussion board and no where else. I'm always on MSN Messenger, thats the only other thing open usually when it happens.

But anywho I know it's 62 since XP groups them together, so then it's just a simple matter of closing the group and wouldn't be a problem but it's started to crash the entire computer so... ugh.

My pop up blocker is on all the time, but it never shows that a pop up is being blocked. I haven't had any from this site in ages.

I guess you're getting everyone elses.

No problem here... I have that one thing known as All-Access (Premium)... and that "Remove Advertisements" feature is what keeps them away...

You have some adware and spyware. This has nothing to do with pwf.

I have premium so I don't get popups here. Like Rebel and others said you may have spyware. Check for that. It's your best bet.

Don't tell him that. While it may be true that it blocks pop-ups... its a webdesigner's night mare! Most sites don't appear as they were intended to be shown and some don't even work in Netscape.


As for your problem, Rusty. I think it's a mix of a major spyware problem and PWF's pop-ups. Get the following programs and run them on your computer:

Spybot - Search & Destroy
Ad-Aware 6.0
Spy Sweeper

Spy Sweeper is the best one... but I suggest you run all of them (NOT at the same time) just to be safe.

Also get a pop-up blocker. I suggest getting the Google Toolbar because not only does it give you one-click access to news headlines and a seach bar for webpages and images and a highlight tool to highlight specific words or phrases on the page you are viewing... but it also blocks pop-ups.


I'm starting to sound like an advertisement again
