    I don't run any ad-blockers or pop up blockers at all. I also run Norton AV.

    I run AD Block, I am wondering if that may be the issue? I wonder Whoever has had one popup, if they are also running adblock?

    Ad(d) me to the list. Running chrome with the Adblock extension. Don't see it every time. Scans also come back clean.

    It's looking like it because I am also running AdBlock.

    I guess if I ask what adblock is that means I am not using it? I am using google chrome though-

    Adblock gets rid of the stupid ads on websites. and even gets rid of the Youtube commercials before, or during long videos. It is really awesome, now when I am on Facebook, and Yuotube I don't have 5,000,000,000,000 ads about things I don't need or care about.

    I am running IE 8 and have seen terrible performance as of late with waiting on things to load on this site. I also get occassional "cross-site scripting" identiified by IE.

    Anything I need to do or set to get performance back?

    Occasionally one of the advertisers will have a problem with server response which can affect page load time here. I personally never use IE accept for testing. FF or Chrome is all I use. Chrome is the fastest for me.

    Ok, I can now confirm popups are occuring.. I just had one occur to me.

    FYI, I run Fedora 17/Chrome with Ad block disabled for this site. I was not logged in, and it occurred when I tried to login.

    It appears to me that some of the ads are doing this (chrome javascript console was complaining big time about doubclick ads trying to access areas of the page that is off limits to it.)

    I am beginning to think that it is not Adblock, because it ONLY happens on this site.

    I continue to have delayed page loading and more frequent "Internet Explorer has modified this page to help prevent cross-site scripting. Click here for more information..."

    I tried Chrome for a while and things were faster but started to get some pop-up warnings when doing searches with it.

    Any advice?

    Let me know if you are still seeing the pop ups. I made a couple changes.

    Wonderful:rolleyes:

    I'm at a loss. I have been searching the net for an answers, and trying to see if other forums have been affected. Doesn't look like it :dunno: None of the ad networks I work with believe the problem is on their end.

    Maybe we're going about this from the wrong angle--

    How about clicking on the pop up to see where it goes? Then reporting them to our IP's?
