Google popups - ads - also with virus-popups

Post by Laila-s on March 23rd 2010, 2:17 pm

Hello

I just created this forum: http://border-terrier.forumotion.net

Google ads are showing, I now it cost to get rid of them. BUT often obvius virus-ads like flashing banners with "You have won" or "congratulation - 1 year free greencard" or "You are guest number - click her to collect" pop up. How can I avoid them? They also pop up when loged in.

My virus-program is McAfee and it is updated. I also have an activ firewall.

I visited my new forum on different computers, same problem.

Hello,

Can you clarify a bit more on the specific scenario;
is the add the virus or does the add direct to a virus?

Also, seeing as you have deleted your forum, I assume that there is no need for assistance, would that be right?
That surely can be worded better?

The add direct to a virus. No one would like to visit af forum with virus ads like "Congratulation You are number 9999999 visitor click and collect" or "You have won" or "you have been chosen" "You have 1 message - open it now". Click these ads and you get a virus. They look and leave.

Same problem with this forum: http://bornholmeren.forumotion.com

I am just about to give up on this one to. Can you help with this, or?

you can change the add's to text only and you can remove them so only your guests will see them

Admin panel
General >> Forum Configuration,

Allow image and video formats for ads : : Set to NO

Activate ads : Guest Save

Hope it's helped

Hmm that is not right that should remove all the adds to members and leave it open to guest only and the adds should only be word's bot video banners maybe you could ask a mod to take a look at your forum for you .

RE, sorry about this delay.

IF you don't mind, could we have a screenshot of the virus warning please?

I'm asking this because I've disabled my ad block program on firefox, and followed several of these links, and I cannot seem to get a virus report with Avast! Free

It is rare that McAfee (your antivirus) does report a false positive.

Have you also recently added any new codes, or widgets?
If so, do you mind removing them?

These adds are produced by Google, not Forumotion

No ads - Works on one forum - not the other

Post by Laila-s on June 21st 2010, 10:54 am

I have removed resently added new codes. I have changed to No ads and Guests.

It works on http://border-terrier.forumotion.net. Only text ads now.

but not on:

http://bornholmeren.forumotion.com. Still ads with link to virus.

The easy way would be to delete the new forum and keep the one I had marked for deletion. But I would prefere to solv the problem.

Yes I have. I followed Ape`s instructions.

Allow image and video formats to ads: NO
Activate Ads: GUESTS

As I wrote, it only works on one of the forums.

I suppose for the nature of this we'd have to call Typlo, our lesion to the company in.

That is, unless you feel restarting would be eaiser for you?

I don`t know who Typlo is. Just thougt writing here ("Free forum support") would help me solve the problem?

Something must be wrong with http://bornholmeren.forumotion.com, as it will not show text ads only.

RE;

I'll pop a PM to Typlo, our lesion to the company now.

Usually we can assist, just sometimes there is a problem which we have to ask for "higher up" to intervene Wink
