POPUPS
« on: 16:11:37, 08/11/12 »
Logged in here at 4pm only to find a popup 'a website is trying to open up - allow /  don't allow'
I kept pressing don't allow but it kept coming back so I dragged it off-screen, if it  comes back what can I do next?   Never got that on a forum before ::)

When I went off line at lunchtime I hadn't had any popups - on any forum - then I log on and get that one, it's one I used get when I wanted to copy and paste an email

Sometimes means someone is trying to hack in and your security is stopping it.  Just keep pressing the don't allow button and if it won't go away, try shutting down and disconnecting the internet, see  if it goes away.  What is the program/website that's trying to open it?   ???

i use firefox, i barely ever get any pop ups, specially not those types that you have to allow/dissallow.
to be doubley sure when someat like that happens id give the full hard drive a scan with malwarebytes anti malware just to make sure its not coming from a nasty on your puter.
also browsing with firefox with a pop up blocker would get rid of internet based pop ups

The pink bit seems to be some sort of newly added advert banner on the Forum.   :)
