    What are these popups that come on

    after I log in? Is the creek posting those. If they continue, I will become a non-contibutor.

    I see no pop-ups.
    I am familiar with modern idioms but they are outside the vocabulary of what I want to say.

    I donít think Iíve ever seen a pop up on the creek. Is this pop up limited to the creek or are you seeing it elsewhere? I ask because I have seen a page that sort of hijacks many pages to inform me that I have won something. The only way to get rid of that is clearing all the cookies.

    Seems to me I have seen a popup when first logging in informing me when I have a new private message. Other than that, have never seen one on the creek.

    I got them earlier today, but not know. I will reboot and see if they show up.

    I rebooted and they did not show up.

    Is your anti-malware up to date? I would be suspicious that you may have something now installed in your machine that you don't want, and would run a comprehensive scan on it, if you can.

    How do you perform such a comprehensive scan?

    In your browser, in settings, find "tools", and under tools, find "exceptions". A list will come up, and there will probably be a strange looking one with a web address. You can remove it directly from there. I just do away with all exceptions.

    Depends on what operating system and anti-malware tools you use. If you are on Windows 10, there is pretty sound anti-malware built in under your "Windows Security" on your menu. If you have older Windows, you probably have something like McAffee installed, and there is a way through that software to do so.

    Do you have a computer guru you can ask?

    The only pop-up native to our software is when you have a new private Message. We do have the means to create a login pop-up but we have only used that feature temporarily one time in 17 years.

    We do not allow our advertisers to use a pop-up associated with their banner graphics here.

    They are not coming from here. Reread my earlier post, if you want to get rid of them. It's a redirect. I had the same problem, but it's gone now.
