    I just got a popup on here.
    It was from Castrol.
    did that come from here or should I start looking for ad/spy/malware?

    It is here - and my firewall doesn't like it at all. There seems to be tracking cookies in the code.

    Checked the security software - quite a bit of activity from here - much of it flagged suspicious.

    Yeah it seems all you have to do is pass your mouse pointer over the ad and the pop up presents itself. It is quite annoying.

    Dropped the laptop and got on the phone while I do my mcafee webroot malwarebytes etc. Routine.

    Maybe a little more than others....

    I personally haven't noticed any pop ups... But really haven't been paying attention...

    I rarely get pop ups, but when I do I usually just close it and forget about it seconds later...

    It isn't necessarily the annoyingness its the fact that popups are the perfect channel for hackeral adwarel sotwarel etc to enter your device. Without a good firewall and coalition of anti bad stuff software, your machine, and all the info on it could be compromised.

    Also this is just my honest opinion, but IMHO, reputable sites don't have popups. This makes me question the integrity of this site and really makes me lose a lot of respect for this place.

    Definitely agree with the statement about reputable sites not having pop ups...

    I'm going to have to watch and see if I am in fact getting pop ups here but just not remembering...

    It hasn't hit the forums yet - check the portal page - the main site.

    But as for getting BlackBerry info... If its important it seems to hit the forums before it hits the main page...
