Side Ads

Do you ever find the ads that pop up next to your emails to be offensive?

For about a week now, a Fruit of The Loom ad has been appearing next to my emails. It was bad enough when it was women in their underwear, but now it is a man - leaving nothing to the imagination. To make matters worse, there is no "x" for me to remove the ad and it is just from his waist to his knees. It's pornographic! I am a senior citizen and I find these ads very offensive.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this topic.

Please stay safe!

Have a great day!

My hubby had an ad blocker put on our computers and it works very well. I don't remember how much it costs but it wasn't very much. Reply

i hate ads. one video streaming site has auto ads and the one for a fastfood place makes the food sound all se*ual. they're also soooooo loud compaired to whatever i'm watching. like, if you remember seeing the commercials with Shout!!! cleaning product, where they just yell at you, its the same feeling.

I haven't seen anything like that, but I pretty much block them out to where I don't even notice them. Reply

Yes, but usually can ignore them. What REALLY frosts me is when notification of email messages that arrived pop up right in the middle of a computer game I'm playing (usually timed) and I can't see what I'm supposed to click on, etc. Reply

You are getting adware, a form of intrusion. You must have picked up, at some time, some malware. Install adware-blocking software, which is sometimes included in antivirus software, and is also available separately. Then run a scan to get rid of the adware. Some "toolbars" are adware, and some other things, also. I cannot make specific recommendations, because I do not know what operating system you are running. On my desktop computer, I have antivirus in addition to that provided by the operating system and three other software items that block adware. You may not need to install as much security software as I do, but you obviously need more and better than you now have.
Good luck.

I don't pay too much attention to the ads....I think they are the price you pay for having a free email acct. Sorry you saw an offensive photo. And the ad will probably pop up again (mine do); maybe you can find somewhere to click on it so you can report it. Or maybe you want to contact customer service at that company and complain about the ad. Reply
