i see you dont get it right, my english is rly poor.

No1 is spaming in my forum. When someone is clicking on our forum he is getting a new tab in mozilla with advertisement that he won something, when try to click X to close it, another 3 coming out etc etc and you need to restart browser. Thought is only mine problem on forum, but today 3 peoples told that same in ChatBox.

Another Admin normally using the chrome, he installed clean mozilla today and tested, same problem after few hours. So its not personal browser problem.

Are they the forumotion Ads? If you click on them, new websites will open?

Please explain with screenshots.

I did not get any problem while accessing your forum.

I don't see a reason for you to be rude. How do you expect me to give you a perfect solution if i don't seem to replicate the problem on my end? All i can do is troubleshoot & try to sort the problem for you. If you are being rude, i don't think i can help you any further. Sorry.

Sorry if you got it in that way. Loosing members because they think that our forum cause this problem (think same) and they dont want to have viruses.

Its just weird when i told something and still peoples think that i dont try that or something like that.

You can tell the users the same thing. If you yourself cannot replicate the problem, how do they expect you to find a solution to it?

Its definitely something to do with their computers. To confirm this, i have been asking you to do a virus scan.

Sorry that you feel this way. If we can not reproduce the issue, we can not help. That is way we believe that it is an issue with their computers. It is not that hard to run a scan of your computer.
