  • Adverts unwanted

    I am having a question. When I try to go to any page on Powwows.com including my private messages or any other pages, most often advertisings keep popping up occupying the whole screen and no way to click them off. They want me to either install a picture viewer or java update in order to view pages here. But everthing is updated and the hosts who want me to download that software don't look familiar to me.

    My question is, how can it be stopped receiving those adverts and does anyone else has this problem as well? Any helpfull answer's appreciated.

    Is your firewall up-to-date? Is your mal-ware software up-to-date? When was the last time you ran Disk Cleanup (Accessories/Disk Cleanup)? How many cookies are you packin'? Are you performing your computer maintenance once a week or never?
    Start with these and give us some feedback.

      As far as I know - my PC is up-to-date with protection. I checked it. Had anti-virus run, nothing found. But the all-over-screen popup-window keeps to continue but only on powwows.com no other website. It keeps saying if I want to view pages here I should install java - and sometimes say I should download something else, forgot what it was. But here is the main part of one of the links the popup is sent from http://www.updowntuv.com/DE/index.php?
      Just now another popup came, this is new... something for
      a gaming site.

          I noticed that on the left hand side panel here some of the emoticons and pictures are not to be seen on my screen anymore, don't know if that is some irregularity from this site or if it's just me or something wrong with my computer.

          The other thing is a warning I want to give out -...

          Father refused to acknowledge tribe, can I still join?
          by Niigig
          Hi all. I am new. I will spare you the entire sob story, but I have to give a little of it in order for it to make sense, but the bottom line is that everyone on my dad's side of the family was extremely racist, white supremacist almost, back to one who was resentful of his father who was full-blooded...

          by CaudwellianDialect
          Okay so thus far chapter 3 is one of my strongest, though it is an action chapter, and I am trying to avoid too many of those because I don't want to portray the Anowarkowans as violent people, but more, it is hard to say, they are enlightenment era almost technologically, but different then Europeans,...
