    I'm at work and not on my normal 'puter. I've had CK5 running in the background all day and periodically I get a series of pop ups appearing.

    Have things changed on the site in the last week (I've been gone) or is this machine a victim of its regular dumb user visiting the "wrong sites"? /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    no there are no popups here. Steve is very much against popups and has never used them on CK5 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    i get them from time to time, it over writes the page with a add that will scroll with the page and will only go away if you refresh. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
    the funny thing? one add is for a add blocker /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    I get them when I click the vote link so I hate to vote cause they don't stop popping up, yes I have a pop up blocker.

    i've never seen a pop up on this site, or when clicking to vote for that matter, other than the vote window itself. Sounds like some sort of adware or spywhere installed on the pc. I have used spybot search and destroy from download.com. While it did work good it was fairly complicated to use.

    This gay guy at my company is always talking about his popups. I told him, "Hey, your time, your life, I don't wanna hear about it".

    Sounds like you have some spyware on your computer. Download a program called Spybot and another one called Adaware. Between those two, they should clean up everything for you.
