Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Is anybody else getting popups galore here?

I seem to be getting popups galore whenever I am on BF. This is the only time it's happening and it's getting annoying!

I've never had a pop up. Bit I use a text based browser 90% of the time.
The other 10% I've still not had one.
I'd hate to suggest that maybe you have some sort of spyware that is geting triggered by one of the adds or phrases in the text, but maybe you have some sort of spyware that is getting triggered by one of the adds or phrases in the text

I actually found the problem. It was on my Windows system. Mrs Stormcrowe DL'd a "free" game and I finally found the spyware she DL'd with the game. When she DL'd the game it shut down my antispyware program and changed several settings. I've since fixed it and reduced her access privileges. I also changed all my PW's including Admin. I haven't had a problem since!
