Hey, I browsed this website on my laptop and got spammed with adds. Firefox blocked 150 adds (rising) in like 5 seconds. Adblock is installed and I was a none registered user.

Anyone noticed this problem?

It is just this site I recieved such a problem yet.

It seems to me as an issue with Firefox

I dunno, I use Firefox and I've never been spammed with ads here, either as a guest or as a signed in user.

Seems like I have malware on my laptop, somehow. Might be my fault but I wonder how I got this.

Thanks for the help :)

Damn if that's the case then best of luck with it! Is this ad problem happening on any other websites now, or still just this one? Have you noticed your computer running slower or any other signs?

I don't know much about computer viruses and whatnot, but I'm sure if you give some details there are people here who could help.

I googled malware and followed the steps on a site. The first program I ran helped and solved this problem. Sorry for false detecting this site but strangely it opened the adds everytime I visited this site. Maybe it had something to do with the algorithm the malware used.

Anyways, you might delete/close this topic. Sorry again and thanks to everyone.

What was the malware called, can you remember?

The program I used did not showed this. It just removed it.

The anti malware program is called adwcleaner.
