    I haven't seen the problem on my Win 10 laptop with Firefox or my iPad with Safari.

    Could the problem be related to either the Chrome, IE, or Edge browsers?

    Safari for me. I hate extra add ons which is why I got a mac in the first place but the ads were just too annoying. No problem now.

    You can stop most of it within the browsers settings. For instance using Google Chrome:
    Type chrome://chrome/settings/content" into the URL bar. Then all you need to do is scroll down to the plug-in section, and select 'Let me choose when to run plugin content'. This should stop or minimize most of it. Now this will vary with different browsers and whether you are using PC or MAC's.
    It is related to all browsers, there are multiple avenues for every browser to stop the auto run ads.

    Ok, so those are ads that are not supposed to be here and we do our best to block them. If you experience this issue, take a screen shot. On a Mac,Command-Shift-4. ...On a PC, hold control and hit print screen. On a phone, home button and off button clicked at same exact time. Then go to a photo editing software and paste. save it. upload it to this thread as an attachment. Along with the screen shot, provide the type of computer and the browser. And if you are redirected to a URL, let us know the URL. This information helps us block. We have stickied this thread in tech support so that we can help troubleshoot ongoing. Do not use this thread to tell people to use ad blockers. Moving forward, if you have issues, post them in this forum.
