    No reason to involve Norton.

    Just hit control-alt-delete, open up the Task Manager, then open Applications, click on your browser listed in Applications, and then click "End Task."

    Once you shut down your connection you can reopen it. It's a pain in the @ss, but according to Admin it's being worked on?

    Hope this helps in the interim!

    Warmest regards,

    JPS

    I had the misfortune to experience the dreaded pop up ads five or six times today on two different iPads.

    The ongoing photo attachment problems are an annoyance but these pop up spam attacks that hijack the browser are intolerable and the management here needs to permanently remove them. It's the stuff of ghetto web pages and porno sites.

    It would have never been permitted in the "old days" and it should not be excused today.

    Lucky me, I just won a $1000 Visa gift card.

    This needs to stop.

    After posting above I was knocked off line four times in a row in a matter of a couple of minutes.

    If this forum is going to be run like a porn site there should be hot naked women and free porn videos. In for a penny in for a pound.

    Three more times but I won iPhone 6.

    This forum is not useable or enjoyable and it needs to stop now.

    These happenings are getting to be quite common on several firearms boards. With the commercial ads you see, they are planting tracking cookies into your computer. Now, some crooked individuals hack into those tracking cookies and plant their various crap. Therefore you see what you are getting. All of those tracking cookies are spyware. It tells those advertisers which sites you go to all the time. Random ads and crap can easily pop up on other pages as well.

    Example. I just shut my computer down. Restarted it. Ran my "SuperAntiSpyware" program. No spyware. Opened Gunboards and went to a few different topics. 15 minutes later I again ran my spyware program. In that small amount of time I now had 234 spyware cookies from here. No other programs or web pages were loaded or running. Only this board. Get enough of that spyware and too many of them trying to send info to the advertiser and your computer will slow or lock up for a bit.
    So, I turned back on my Adblock program and all this stuff quit immediately.

    I wonder if the new anti gun Canadian news group that owns this forum realizes all the viruses the adverts they allow on this forum are scaring away members and guests alike.. They're killing their ad revenue in the long run.

    I really love how when the first couple people posted it, the usual trolls showed up to make "ur watching porn" comments and the same boot lickers "its you its not the forum". Thread after thread after thread.. kinda hard to point the finger at the users at this point.
