Thanks, sfreeman, for the AdwCleaner information.  Though I'm surprised that the program didn't make itself available on your desktop.

I am going to repeat this again since it's so simple if you are not dead set against technology. Get an 8Gb Thumb Drive from an office supply store and install a free copy of Browser Linux on it. Once you get it running use the Firefox browser that comes with it and all your problems will be GONE! I don't know why people are against trying this, but I have been doing it for years and never had a problem with any spyware or virus. If I want to run Windows, I just stay offline (unless I am positive I know where I am going is safe). Fight it if you like, but it's the simplest answer out there and you only spend five bucks. If it doesn't work, erase the thumb drive and store pictures on it.

By a thumb drive, do you mean a jump drive?   
I'm going to try this because I can't access a bunch of items on my computer due to some adblocker I can't figure out how to turn off, maybe this will be a solution.   I have an 8 gb one and a 32 gig one to try out.

Same device, thumb drive, jump drive, usb drive, memory stick. It allows a USB device inserted into a USB slot to look like any other drive letter.

I'm also going to do what you suggest just in case I have more problems. Thanks!

I'm sorry this is happening to you, I really hope it gets better so you don't have to leave FC. I haven't had any problems like this even though I have ran into a redirect here or there for some offers, but none of them have done anything bad to my computer.  I think you should try a few more options before you give up. Best of luck!!  :glasses-nerdy:

You have been given some good advice. I would try that before leaving FusionCash. Sorry you are having such an issue. I have Norton Anti Virus protection and I have had not problems at all. Norton takes care of any problem. I am able to view a daily report from them which shows what or who was blocked.

Which browser are you using ... I use Chrome and do not have those issues ... but if I use Internet Explorer I seem to have the ads problem .. could be the browser -- not Fusion Cash

That could be a different issue that you are experiencing. I'm no expert on adware/malware, but it seems to me that if they reside on your hard drive, then you will have problems no matter which browser you're using.  ???

Chrome doesn't actually allow you to download a lot of extra like all the tool bars.  So something may install as a toolbar and effect the other browsers with no issues using Chrome

I've never had a problem with this site. And the fact that it's this site alone seems a bit odd. It could be anything causing the popups. I get them, and it's not from this site, just internet in general. People try to hack into computers, maybe that's it..
