    Hi
    I subscribed a few days ago and I'm still getting a lot of ads popping up. I thought subscribing was supposed to prevent this?

    Any advice appreciated - Thanks

    At the bottom on any page use 'send feedback'. In the 7 years I've been here, I've never seen an ad. Maybe it is some other program on your computer causing the ads to appear?

    Indeed the problem most likely is on your computer. Look for malware or adware using software appropriate for your system (Microsoft for example offers a free tool for recent windows versions)

    Thanks - it's probably my PC as I've been having some problems. I recently bought Avast but it doesn't seem to have solved the annoying popup ad problem arghh!

    just ran adwcleaner and it appears to have sorted out the problem. Thanks for the advice 🙂

    Ha! Red Hot Pawn as a diagnostic tool! That's great.

    Not complaining, but using Linux I don't see any ads, except when viewing from my phone.. 🙂
