    Can you as mods do anything about undesirable spam popups that arise from using this site. I've been frequenting the forum for a couple of years and just got my first pop-up. I want to keep visiting this forum - there are so many great things going on - but I don't want to be bothered with this kind of stuff. Is there anything you can do to eliminate pop-ups from coming up on this site?
    Thanks -

    You are mistaken, your pop-ups originate from elsewhere. What you need are both an adblocker and an antimalware program. Google these. Once certain malware enter your system, pop ups can happen on any page.

    Sounds like you have same adware/malware on your machine.

    If you're looking for free anti-malware, try running malwarebytes and spybot search and destroy.

    Aslo, make sure your pop-up blocker is on as suggested by FTS below.
