Every time I visit this awesome forum I'm bombarded with adchoice messages and popums and you can't close it, it remains where it's at.
Are you getting these messages and popups and how do we get rid of them? The ads are on every page you look up.

Not sure this thread belongs to this forum. It should probably be in "Open Talk" forum.

I don't get any ads. I wouldn't know if there was any, I use Adblock.

I do not get them, but use Firefox and a plug in called Adaware.

That happens even when signed in with your user account? There is nothing like that happening here. There is only the single built-in ad at the left side of some pages.

no adblocking here and no popups
I'd say you have a malware issue or browser hijack on your PC

I get ads if I am not logged in on Dyxum... there is one at the top of the page, one after first post and one in the middle of the page. No pop ups.

If I am logged in then there are no ads at all.


It has to be something wrong on your side.

How small is small?
Well, if it's bigger than 23x16mm, then it is huge!

Moved to the About Dyxum sub forum but yeah, the reason you're seeing adverts is that you are not logged in but viewing the forums as a guest.

Messages and popups? Although Dyxum uses advertising it is unobtrusive: there is an engine that "monitors" link clicking (to monetize links to some external portals with e.g. shops) and there are ads being displayed for guest users (but still - not "messages" or "popups"). So if you are logged in and still getting ads then the problem is on your side.

Have you googled for "adchoices"? If not then please do. For example one of the first search hits is: http://www.2-spyware.com/remove-adchoices.html. In particular the following sounds intersting: "An excessive amount of ads starts appearing when users accidently install particular add-on or adware[3] program".

In your position I would install Adaware or SuperAntiSpyware (or rather both) and do a thorough scan of your machine. An offline scan with Windows Defender Offline (or any other offline virus scanner) would also be quite reasonable.

More and more page-view-blocked: "We see that you are using an Ad blocker. Please consider..." messages are showing up though. Measures and countermeasures.

OP: I agree with the last post. Have not had issues like yours with dyx.

Advertisements keep sites free.

I don't mind the occasional advertisement and most sites (like Dyxum) have a little amount of advertisements, no problem and no reason to install an add blocker IMHO. Using an add blocker might increase the amount of advertisement a site uses to cover the costs...

I quite agree and disable mine when asked, at least if the ads aren't totally obnoxious. I agree not one iota when it comes to YT ; )
