I thought I had found it this morning, because the "Congratulations! You've Won!" came up in the ad console... It takes a few hours to propagate, so I can't be sure 100% that it was the one causing all the issues. It is likely that it was the cause, but I am continuing my search. I have *NO* idea how that one was allowed because I had blocked the specific advertiser from ever appearing but somehow the ad network bypassed that setting and it enabled this ad!

There was a thread like this in the open mike section but I can't find it now. So I don't think you are the only one.

You are not alone clu, I had problems on this site yesterday and this morning as well. Getting rid of the ads seems to have solved the problems for me.

This is happening to me daily for the past few days. When I see a problem start to occur, I hit the back arrow and it stops for a while. If I don't catch it, a pop-up comes on and takes up the entire screen and doesn't allow me to do anything but X out and this takes me off the internet.
The ad I see the most has something to do with China ??????. Sorry, I never stay on it long enough to take full notice of its title.

It happened again. The site was ChinaOnTv

It happened to me too. It kept pulling up inappropriate websites that children should NEVER see !!
It took me 2 hours to find it in my computer and get rid of it.
Now there is a ChinaX (??) website that comes in place of the next page when it is loading.

What's going on ??

I'm having the same trouble. Getting the thing about China & what appear to be ads for various things. I don't know much about computers & how this works, so I have had to shut everything down completely. I would like to know what is going on & how to fix it.
