Alana ~ The Book Pimp (LoonyAlana) | 456 comments I started, in just last day (or three) noticing some words in people's comments, and even one of my reviews, that now have a pop-up ad when your mouse hovers over it. Even if I'm scrolling down the screen those suckers will open if the mouse cursor goes anywhere near it.

I know you need to cover the cost of running a 'free' website via advertising. But I am REALLY not liking this latest addition. Maybe it's just me. Regardless, it's driving me nuts.

Melanti I haven't seen it either. Alana, you may want to check your computer for spyware and viruses.

Brooke | 508 comments Sometimes that is something nefarious on your own end, Alana. Have you checked your virus/malware protection recently?

message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

There was a similar thread recently and consensus was that the problem was a virus or other malware on the user's end.

Alana ~ The Book Pimp (LoonyAlana) | 456 comments Thanks- it mus be my end then... pesky little critters those virus and what not

Alana ~ The Book Pimp (LoonyAlana) | 456 comments Sorry about that!
