MacKeeper Popup
« on: April 16, 2018, 10:25:13 AM »
Hi! I've been having trouble this morning with a MacKeeper pop-up advert. Every time I try to go to a forum site a full screen MacKeeper ad pops up. It comes out of nowhere. It's just there and I can't see any button to push to get rid of it. It has rendered the site almost unusable. Please get it to stop. If it continues, I won't be able to use your site. It's that bad. Thanks. I love Canon Rumors but this is... >:(

That type of annoyance is usually local not site driven. I'd do a Google search for where to locate the offending file on your drive.

Thanks for the advice. The popups have stopped, at least for the moment. I did both malware and virus scans earlier today and neither came up with anything.

I had it too , Cleared history and it was gone . No other web pages had this issue.
