POP UP's !!!!!!

I was traveling last week and my Air Card failed.
I checked in here Saturday evening, on a publicly
open WIFI...... AND.... Started getting popups
here in SHR.........?????

Is this a recent thing....???
Does it happen to you...???
When did it start....?????
Are you getting kicked out trying to post...????

I am getting survey requests from SHR... but the
characters on the survey request look weird....!!!!

Thanks in advance for your thoughts

I have not experienced any of the issues you described. The website is acting the same as it always has for me. Dunno :?

Thanks HH..... I am thinking I may have picked up something
while on that public WIFI.....

I took a precaution last night and scanned my computer,
nothing showed up.

I wonder if removing the SHR program and reinstalling
will cure this..... it is really aggravating, little boxes pop up
and start running all by themselves.

Re: POP UP's !!!!!!

What "SHR program" are you talking about? I simply access the website through my web browser, either Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Re: POP UP's !!!!!!

I just want to echo HH's two postings.

Nothing new and no pop ups for me and I do not run a SHR program either.

Good Luck 14Smokem.

Re: POP UP's !!!!!!

Thanks to you all........

When I said program.... it was meant to say
website.... my computer abilities are not
eggzackery stellar :D :D

I just signed in again... and all that junk is still there.
I am guessing I gained some kind of intercept when I was
on the public WIFI..... now gotta figger out how to remove it.

Re: POP UP's !!!!!!

Great example why I don't use public Wi-Fi. I know a lot of people do, but I really try to avoid it.

Re: POP UP's !!!!!!

One thing you might try is go to your tools link in the upper right and toward the bottom you'll see Internet Options. Then under Security, you'll see Pop-up Blocker. Turn it on and reboot. See if that helps.

Re: POP UP's !!!!!!

Great, glad you found the culprit. Just in case, here is a step-by-step to uninstall it. Make sure you got it all. It may require more than simply running the uninstall program to get it all.

Glad you sorted it out. Pretty quick too for an uneggstraordinary geek. :D
Do as HH suggests. Malwarebytes is a good thing to use.

I'll second that. I've used Malwarebytes & Super Anti-Spyware for years. I've never needed AdwCleaner, but I'm considering it.

Glad you're back safe and sound from your travels D.

I love how everyone comes together on this site to help each other out. As for being technically inept.... I take the prize so I love reading posts like this in case I ever need them.
