Am I the only one who's experience pop-up ads on the forums. It happens when I click on stuff that shouldn't cause it like the youtube button. And the weird thing is I have the pop-up blocker set up on my firefox web browser. Do I have a weird spam/ad virus on my computer?

Never mind....I got some kind of nasty spam/virus that is effecting all my web browsers. Time to use Linux for a while till the virus is found and cured.

HA-ZAAH! I fix the problem....it was an extension in Firefox that I never installed but was there. It put ads on websites that shouldn't have them and did massive redirects. So if anyone has the problem in the future. Disable/uninstall all add-ons.
