Default Answered: is it just me or...

okay so like all the ads im seeing on wi are like

"DOWNLOAD THIS!"
"PLAY .... DOWNLOAD"
or like "YOUR FLASH NEEDS UPDATED"

and all this crap thats obviously malicious
it's not like i'd click it but it is really bothering me because i don't want it to mess up my computer

so i was wondering if it was just me or are those the ads other people are seeing too

Sorry to hear you are having problems with some of the ads. I haven't personally seen any of these ads, and I do keep them on to watch for some problem ones. I'll continue to keep my eyes open for the ads mentioned. It could be the case that your flash is outdated, or the flash the ad is using is, and the ad cannot play because it is not compatible with the edition you have installed. That would be the best case scenario and I have seen it happen.

We are signed up for family friendly ads, which does not mean the lemon will not get through (be it malicious content or "adult" in it's content), but we try and weed them out by watching them ourselves and through your comments.

If you see an ad that concerns you: please make note of the date & time (please include your time zone), the location of the ad (top banner, bottom, or on the side), and the name of the company (the website address is best). That is the best way for us to take a look at the ads.

While some of these ads may not be malicious & simply a glitch in the program. It's always best to download the program/addon/browser from the official site. Better not to take any chances in that department.

ETA: because I did not make it clear earlier. Please send any ad concerns via PM to a staff member. Creating threads about inappropriate ads is just spreading the image that may make others uncomfortable

Don't push a button on those ads, get software upgrades either automatically by your system,
or by manually going to the program's creator's site and downloading the right one yourself.
That way you avoid what might be a deceptive ad that downloads something different from somewhere else.

For flashplayer, manually go to adobe.com,
to make sure you get the right one for your operating system & browser.
You may need more than one download if you use different ones.
But that way you know you are getting a legitimate software upgrade.

Some browsers have it embedded in them, and some use a stand-alone copy.
I'd recommend going to the site on each browser you use it with-
then the site will figure out what you need.

Excellent advice. The ads are annoying and potentially damaging.

We need Flash Player, and they publish security upgrades rather frequently.
So if it suggests an upgrade, you should go to adobe.com and do so.

I had to reload Flash Player after I downloaded Firefox

Firefox does seem to work better with WW, other than having to click on User Name before typing it

I'm going to flag this post, to let staff know about it. If there is a problem, then they can deal with it.
