Blocking a site

For the last few days I have been getting an annoying ad (pop-up) from a dating service that shows up periodically. I have always had “Do not allow any site to show pop-ups (recommended)” turned on, but that has not prevented this site from putting up their ad.

I just installed Adblock Plus. I did the quick scan with Malwarebytes, but the system showed clean. Anything else that’s recommended at this point?

Does this happen regardless of browser you are using?

Surely let several other scanners run because not scanner will catch anything. Scan with the following:
Super Antispyware
Hitman Pro
Spybot Searcht and Destroy
Your residential AV solution

It only happened while using CD. I tried Firefox and IE but did not see it there. It’s a sporadic thing, happening once in awhile.

So far since installing Adblock Plus it hasn’t happened, so I’m in a holding pattern.

If it reoccurs I’ll use your suggestion and try the other products. Thanks!

Did this happen only one certain sites or on most sites?

Also, to make sure that your computer is not infected you can follow the methodology in How to Know If Your Computer Is Infected.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I think it happened mostly off my homepage, but it could have happened on another site… not sure.

Thanks for the methodology.

So far it has not re-occurred so I am still holding.
