Yes. I would delete them.

Delete or quarantine. Whatever your option is.
But that did not fix it on my end. I needed Hoot's link. Although it's always a good idea to run adaware and malware bytes now and then. What one doesn't find the other usually does.

I too recommend Ad-Aware...

I've been running Firefox since it started as Mosaic, then Mozilla ... And eventually became FF. that's about 18 years...

I remember I had to compile Mosaic on my Sun workstation. That was 1995.

It didn't fix it here either, so I too will have to use Hoot's link. I really don't understand it all, but if I follow along step by step I should be OK. I am also getting a warning from Cisco, my WIFI network every time I click into a post on the forum and also on another forum I belong to. I just click out of it and continue, but eventually I have to address that. I had that once before but I can't remember how I got rid of it.

Computers are such fun.

Here is the warning I get. I just got it when I clicked on "quote" to reply to a post. It's not just here that I get it, but also on most other sites. I think it has something to do with the issue we are discussing in this thread. Notice that it also has the items in red underlined, the same as the ones I am getting in the posts here. It comes up with the Cisco logo which is my router. I had this warning before but I can't remember how I got rid of it. I am waiting to see if Hoot's link was any help to Pacanis, and also the time to go through the steps.

I got a similar warning on another site. The warning window gave me a link to a Google site that tests websites for containing viruses, malware, etc and that site gave them a clean bill. I still got the warning. I notified their tech support and it has subsequently been cleared up.

Hallelujah! I saw this fix online. I went into the program for my Cisco router and disabled "safe web surfing." I have tried and tried, and I am no longer getting the warning of Possible Web Threat. I restarted my PC and now I am no longer getting the words in red in the posts with the pop-up ads attached. Since a few people were posting online that they were having this problem with their Cisco router I believe that it might be a glitch in the router. For months we didn't have the router connected because my lap top was crashed. After we got the lap top fixed, we re-connected the router, a month or so ago. So I think with Ad-Aware installed and running I should be OK from now on. I don't think I need Hoot's link, but I saved it for future reference.

Holy crapiola batman

I read through a few threads, clicked on this one and saw this!

Then after I had saved it and went to post about it I got it again when the computer opened the advanced reply window.

What the heck is going on here lately?
Hoot, are you on this? Nobody else appears to be. Along with the numerous times (sometimes) that it takes to upload a picture here

I wonder if it has something to do with me only seeing a black X on Carol's last post where a picture should be? I can't move around in this thread at all without getting that password window.
