Anyone else getting this?

I'm getting popup ads on FA and IB now, and in FA several random words on the page are now hotlinks to ads. Did they implement new scripts, or do I have some kind of ad ware my apps cant detect?

Ah it turns out I had some program called "TopArcadeHits" on my browser and in my HD that was causing it. Not sure how it got there as I did not install it. Fuckin shadey sites.

No it was a stand alone application, it installed on my hd and as a plug-in on my browser. I uninstalled the app, and disabled the plug in and that fixed it.

It's possible it piggy backed on a reputable site. I recently downloaded a port tester to check my modem, it could have come from there. But I saw no options or check boxes for toparcadehits. Possibly bundled with the port check? Ether way that shits gone now.

Likely adware. I have something that dug into my Firefox like that.

I got rid of that shit soon as I found out what it was. XD Luckily it was easy to get rid of.
