Intellitxt Adds

I don't like them and I have them disabled. I am logged in but yet the damned things keep on creeping in... Why?

I hope someone has an answer for ya as I've got the same problem except mine is all over my internet. I've even got an ad trying to get me to install something that pops up every time I go from page to page and that just started today.

This is not a site specific problem. You have nasty Malware infecting your computer and you need to get it cleaned up quickly!

I ran a deep scan with Malwarebytes and it found nothing. Any other suggestions?

Take a look at what I originally posted...

I am seeing them on numerous threads and on several different PCs that I use at work and at home. So what else could it be?

If you have it set to disable then you should not see any of the intelleTXT ads when you're logged into the forum. If you're browsing the forum as a guest/not logged in you will see the intelleTXT ads.

If you're logged in and still seeing them then I would advise running a scan on your computer. It could be that you picked up a virus and it is creating text ads on your computer as well.

Brian:
I looked at the thread that your picture came from and it doesn't appear to be an ad but rather a link to a thread on a different forum.

I don't know if (alwims) did that intentionally or if he has malware doing it for him but from his post in this thread it's likely malware on his end.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"

So I guess the question for wingmin then, is the green test in this thread: https://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/...her-again.html a link or an add?

I see what you mean Ken, but when I make a link to another thread it looks a lot different...
