No, they say they did not, but every time they tried to log in it happened again, in all browsers, and they even clean the cookies, but it didn't help until they put a link to it to block.

if they are having avartisments pop up trying to download stuff it means there browser is infected and this was not cause by your website .. it was caused by going to pirated websites like for downloading pirated games,movies,software.. or porn websites and etc

they need todo a virus scan, ad aware scan, spyware scan ,and find some kinda program to scan there browser on there pc

my 2 fav programs i use are

avast anti virus
malwarebytes anti malware

there are many other free virus scanners online just search google and make sure they scan what i have listed above

I was going to say they need to use an adblocker. The ads are a third-party.

Thank you guys for helping it is really appreciated.

Edit:She cannot do screen shot since blocked the site, but she gave me url coreclickhoo.com, and she strongly advise to not click on it since it will instantly go to download but it came up on forum log in page yesterday.

Well it happened again

When member opened google chrome and this is what it showed



and before could click anything it flipped into a java download.




This is the history of page, from the forum page on its own it went to these links.


And the other member had problems with his antivirus saying that there is malicious malware detected site infected, and showing warnings of Malware bugs.
