    Default Has anyone else experienced sudden redirects while browsing?

    Now twice in the last 2 days, while browsing threads, I've been suddenly redirected to a scareware page mimicking a Microsoft support article. Typical scareware stuff, claiming I need updates and to run scans, back button is useless, and I usually have to end my Chrome process altogether.

    I've run every scan I can and done everything to my browser short of uninstalling Chrome. Doesn't seem to be an issue on Firefox. Worth noting that the first occurrence happened on my tablet, 2nd was on my desktop.

    Yes. It has been an unfortunate ongoing thing, especially on mobile and tablet. I understand the necessity of having advertising revenue but the feed being used is serving up malware. Unacceptable.

    Are you guys also getting pop-ups that says "Congratulations, you have been randomly selected for a free spin to win an award. Press OK for your free spin" ... Or something of that nature?

    Got 2 pop-ups just today. Never seen them before today.

    I don't use mobile, but my best advice to anyone with a laptop would be to switch over to Firefox (as opposed to Chrome or any other browser) and install the Adblock Plus add-on. I use it and haven't seen a single ad here, scareware or otherwise.

    Look,

    IF we are gonna get all these weird Ads, then I Officially Request that some of the Premium benefits are allowed to non premium like Name Changing or Gif Signatures at least

    theres like 20% of the non premiums that already use Gif signatures and they aren't taken away from them. if we are going to be told to find Hot single milfs in our area then i should be able to request a name change...
