Just got home this evening and now whenever I open a forum page I'm getting a big pop-up ad from something called youradexchange.com. Everything was fine this morning - anybody else got this?

And now, about two minutes later, everything seems fine again.

Just had a new tab opened when I went into a thread.

 

Page stated that I "must update my flash player"

 

URL of page - I've removed the h from http to make it unclickable.

 

At the time, Alienware ads were present on side and bottom panels

I'm getting that one too, and an internet explorer video player one.

 

"You are currently browsing the web with internet explorer and it is recommended that you update your video player to the fastest version available. Please update to continue." :suspect:

Just to add to this, the ads on here are always terrible in terms of computer resources.

 

On every other site I visit, including ones with flash-based ads, my PC is in the teen% for the CPU and very little RAM above the normal system usage.

 

I come on SF and the CPU jumps to the mid-30s for the CPU usage and my browser almost doubles it's RAM usage.

 

I feel sorry for those users with older hardware coming on to SF, it most murder their PCs.
