Seems to have gotten much worse over the last few weeks.

What are you basing this on? Do you use Chrome?

IE 9.

If no one else is seeing this, I will check settings here.
This is the only site I see signifcant issues with popups, 'course I'm here all the time.

Having no problem with Chrome, outside of gifs not loading right.


I'd check your settings.

I've seen it too. Random words will become links to popup ads. At first I thought I might have something but I've seen it on multiple computers and I run Norton and Malware Bytes on both so I'm pretty sure it's not me.

It is definitely you. You have some sort of browser adware plugin that is doing that.

That is it, exactly.

Must be just us or I'm sure other folks would be complaining.

Use Malwarebytes. It's good.

Man, we have to be real careful w/ what we load due to access issues. Everything affects everything else.

Yeah, you guys definitely have some shitty extension/add-on doing that. Find the place where you can disable them and look for anything suspicious. If all look legit, disable them all anyway, restart your browser and see if the hover ads are gone. Enable them one by one and restart/refresh to see which one is the culprit.
