Default Whatís going on

Every time I login to this forum I end up with a amazon.com advertisement asking questions with the chance to win something. I back out and just as soon as I get back on itís back, I have done a hard restart on my iPad, cleared my history. I give up, guess I will have to skip this forum. Enjoyed it , rugerman

I get that sometimes while searching the web, but never on this forum.
It is the one where it has a spinning wheel?
I have to clear my history, then restart the phone.

I sure do not have that on this forum ..I've no idea why you get that here. If using a computer I'll suggest Malwarebytes. There is more adware than viruses now days and malwarebytes fixed that for me. Hope it can help you. Wish I knew why it happens to you here but not other places.

Here's the link for download: https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/

I bought the $39 version but they also have a free version. I used the free one for awhile before buying. Both seemed to work.

Iíve had that happen here and a few other places around the net when using my ipad. I added a popup blocker, lionz. That took care of it.

I already have malware bytes on my pc. Iíve never seen this on The pc.

It's the ghost of Steve Jobs. He is in your iPad.
