Next time this happens to anyone can you please take a screenshot and share here.  Thanks.

This is from when it happened Saturday. It has stopped though so I’m not sure what changed. It hasn’t happened in at least 2-3 days.

 Ok here's something I REALLY hate. Just about every time I come here an ad pops up saying congratulations I just won an iphone. Then you can't get out of it without closing out all the windows. Please get rid of it!

Hello @Wlaurie,

We moved your post to the thread entitled, "Ad Hijack", for continuity.

Could you please provide a screen shot of what you are seeing?  That way, @Joe V can get a better idea of what members are seeing. Thanks.

I suggest running a Virus / Malware scan.
