It's a box that keeps popping up every time I touch the screen. Not big but very annoying. It changed from Skout to something else after a while, but by that time I was feed up with it and logged off.

Im sorry to complain, but these pop-up apps are starting to get bothersome.

Try this....

1. Open the Browser
2. Open "Advanced" Menu
* Note that on Chrome, you need to go to "Content Setting"
3. Mark "Block Pop-ups" button (For Android Default browser, find it under "Page Content" section)

I get it on my iPhone, its part of 'word' advertising, when a specific word relates to an add you'll get that pop up or small window that takes a few minutes to fade out. Very irritating and I've not bothered how to look it up on my iPhone to stop it.

Maybe it's not related to the msg board (?) - try running MBAM and/or your antivirus to see if your PC caught anything...

Popup blocker already enabled, I suspect your admin status is the reason you aren't getting them.

While posting this, one popped up under my finger and opened the link. Really annoying!:mad:

It's only on this site, antivirus checks out fine, and it's a tablet not PC.

Tried downloading an app, tried google for an answer, even ran an app to check for popup apps, nothing!

It really is spoiling this forum for me.:mad:

I could sort of understand it if I wasn't a paid up member, but something this obtrusive is a piss take for a fully paid up member.:mad:

Seems to have done the trick, no adds since changing to disable.

Many thanks.
