    Has anybody ever had this type of malware installed on your computer before? I had this recently where I was surfing on Facebook, Wikipedia, Youtube, and even Retrojunk when I had this popup everywhere.

    Luckily I was able to remove it. My advice for anybody who's had this on your computer, check your browser for third party plugins. I happened to have one installed on both Firefox and Chrome and that fixed the problem.

        Yeah so do I. I don't see any ads, just borders of space around web pages.

          Me too

          When I try and browse IE I get annoying really quickly. I don't know how anyone can put up with all of the ads online. Especially on youtube videos.

            sounds as annoying as the frequent bots that are advertising on the articles. ARTICLES FOR GOD SAKES

              Yeah since I'm still using the computer room terminals. My every click results in an explosion of pop-ups. Guess the installed blockers are useless.

                I've had a similar one where it kept opening a window saying that my computer was infected.
