Topic tags/keywords: ad choice marketing

I have not been active in a while but I notices Ad Choice pop ups and initially thought I was hi-jacked or infected but could not find any evidence of it on my computer and then noticed it was mostly on this site that the pop ups were appearing. Is this something that Martin (he does still own this site correct?) is using here?

Depending on how long you are away: Firstly Martin sold the site but stayed on in his usual job. A little while ago he left. The person you now need to contact is called Cricket. She should loof after you. I think you have a problem with with your computer. I think you may have got it as part of a free download of another programe. Try control Panel and if it is listed in the programes then uninstall it. Hopefully someone with it expierence will coment and advise you better.

Joe.

AdChoices, AdSense, and Adwords are all part of the Google Ad Network that this site uses.

The little green Triangle in the Upper Right Corner is AdChoices, if you click on that it will take you to a Google Site explaining it all. OR It might take you to that Particular Ads Home Page.

I’ve had it happen Both Ways.

I don’t think their is anything wrong with Your Computer and I don’t think You’re Infected with anything.

It was my rig, I run AVAST, and SpyBot Search and descry but that was not enough to fix it . After some looking around I went with MalWareBytes and it found the offending entried in my reg.. fix it and now I am in a much better place than before.

Highly recommend Megabytes, there is a free version that is really free unlike most of the apps that I was looking at.

Sorry to hear that Martin left.. yeah it has been a while since I have actively participated on this site but it is my go to for all things wood.
