    New advertising here or is it my computer?

    What is the bunches of new advertising on this site? On the post I now see "You might like seeing these.." and it's two rows of blocks with pictures, some right out gross! No, I don't want to see obese women (or men) in swimsuits, no I don't want to see women with their behinds stuck up in the air or large chest pointed towards the middle of the pictures advertising testosterone pills. Maybe this would be acceptable on a porn site but I was rather taken back recently (as in the past week) when these ad's started showing up on DC.

    Is there a way to set my computer to stop these gross ad's from showing up on each page of a thread?


    Ok, now when I look at MY post it's THREE lines of gross pictures! "You might like reading these..."

    Only thing I'd like is for the pictures to go away - terribly annoying!

    It seems to be getting worse. Wish it was only one day. It sure does make it unpleasant to visit when each time you try to read something.

    I do wish someone would tell me how to make it stop.

    You probably have a virus.

    I don't know what browser you're using, but you can download pop-up and ad blockers from safe sites like C-Net for free.

    It's likely some trojan/virus or malware on Your PC Sister

    Try this :

    Download Spybot | Spybot ? - Search & Destroy

    Well I did download malwarebytes and now I haven't any idea if it's working since now my computer when it rebooted WILL NOT find the router! Already done the unplug/plug thing several times and it's working because this is a family's computer in the same home I'm typing on. Not sure if I need to call the TWC (cable) people or the computer fix-it man?
