Is anyone else getting slammed by unwanted ads? They are showing up everywhere and interfering with the site operation. There are so many all over the place. I can not nevagate the site with them. Yuck.

I don't see many ads.

This might help you.

I see a few ads, but I am sure they are there to help dealspl.us make money. Who knows--it might even pay for part of our MM check :P

Can you be more specific as to what you are seeing?

Please let us know the following if you can:

Does it only happen when you're on dealspl.us? How long has this been happening? Could you provide us any screen shots?

Feel free to respond via email at support@dealspl.us if you like. Thanks!

Your computer may be corrupt with a virus and no matter what site you are on you will get pop-up ads. Make sure you are using a good virus protection program, I use AVG Free Edition and it has never done me wrong for years and years.

Have you download anything from Cnet lightly, because I had that same problem after I downloaded some free software.
I was able to fix this after I remove the software I downloaded.

I think you have a virus. I see no unwanted ads.

No pop up ads with me. So check whether you get a virus.

Thanks everyone. After running Norton several time. Dh went into the programing and found some malware that invaded when I down loaded a knitting pattern from a trusted site.
