Ads on Adv now?

I have noticed pop up ads on ADV in the last hour or so. One came across the top of the screen and the rest have all been words in random posts that have a green circle next to them. Is this something new to help defray the costs of this place or do I have a virus?

Thanks. Hell the word "bikes" under your user name has one of those circles next to it that pops up an ad.

Thanks for the help.

You got infected.

Look for bettersurf or a new media player. That's the names of the programs that I encountered.

Usually they put themselves in as browser extensions.

Both get in your registry too.

Malwarebytes is your friend.
