Today I have been getting pop-under advert pages appearing while surfing RB. Never happened before, have Zonealarm Pro with pop under/over ads banned and pop-ups disallowed in IE. Anyone else getting them?

Not happening to me. Sounds like you've got a virus. Try restoring your computer to last week(or before this started happening), this sometimes works for me. Otherwise best run a virus checker.

None here, the only time it happens is when visiting links of site (e.g. some picture hosts) and it's the site producing them.

FF3.1 and IE8

I know sometimes the 'banner adverts' can accidental give these out (though not seen it on this site yet) and often a mistake by the advertisers (so they say ;))


It has often been very slow and taking ages to refresh, post etc.. While other site are perfectly fine during that time (early UK morning for example)

My popup blocker is getting a bit of action on RB recently.

I get a few alerts when browsing the site, running Firefox and Kapersky, the last one being only 15mins ago....

That would be a false positive (for this site) as RetroBike modifies ebay links to go through an affiliate type site and so gain the site some money to keep it running. The difference in the link to the actual click on link is what will be triggering it.
