Madness Annoying pop-up

Is anyone else getting this annoying pop-up every time they log - onto AO.com? It has only started with me today.

Have you tried advertisement blocking software? I use Google chrome and i got fed up of popups like the one you've posted about, so i went to the Chrome store and downloaded AdBlock, no cost involved. I haven't had a single annoying popup since...might be worth a try?

Looks like you might have Spyware/Adware installed on your machine - run a free full scan of Malwarebytes which will clear your machine of most problems.

Thank you for the screenshot and the link guys. I'll see if I can get that particular ad blocked and removed.

If any other Mac users are suffering the same problem, then you like me will be aware of how pants Apple's Pop-up blocker is and what a waste of memory space it is. Then download "Glimmerblocker' (Link Below) and pop-ups will become a thing of the past ................. for now!

GlimmerBlocker
