    I keep getting this pop up.....

    I use an iPad for accessing DC, and generally have few problems. The last couple of days I keep getting this. It replaces the DC URL. If I hit the back arrow, DC comes back briefly then it resorts back to this. If I hit back several times, DC remains. Sometimes I just need to close the browser tab and reload DC. I also sometimes get a McAfee pop up that works the same way.

    It’s VERY frustrating.....Any help?

    I have gotten the "Upgrade your flash player" scam from time to time. Don't fall for it!

    I've gotten the McAfee message a couple times. Funny thing is I don't use McAfee.
    Updated my ad-blocker and haven't seen it since.

    You might try getting a bit more aggressive and clear cache, clear history, shutdown browser then restart it, assuming you didn't already try that approach.

    I had it to. It is the "Chromium Virus". While it is open, go to the settings in the up right hand corner (the three dots). Go to "Advance" and turn off running in background. Then close it and use the regular uninstall program procedure for your operating system. Good luck, I have had to do it three times before I found out about the turn off the background switch.

    I’m using safari on an iPad. Not finding Settings anywhere on this google page.

    I've been getting these pop ups on my MacBook. My iPad so has not gotten them but I keep getting pushed over to the mobile site - so does Sister on her iPad. Really odd how it happens too, we'll be looking at the index in desktop and click on a thread or sub forum and it pops over to the mobile site!

    I don’t get kicked over to the mobile site. I just get bumped off completely.

    I have the same issue. Occurring for several days now only from this site. Safari mobile on an iPad.

    I find supremely ironic that God in his wisdom and grace has given man freedom of choice bounded by 10 simple rules. Man in his finite wisdom has created millions of rules to limit freedom of choice and the personal responsibility of his fellow man.

    Have you added any new or updated software lately? Its sounds as if you have acquired a google toolbar somehow. You might find your answer in any add-ons running. Have you checked your browser settings? You might also check tour list of installed programs to see anything suspicious.
