Not sure, but I have noticed several times that when using this website, stuff pops up on my computer, not porn and such, but my search bar is trying to change pages and what not.  I close it out and then everything is normal again.  I use a Mac book Pro, and I also scan it for bugs frequently. It only happens on this website.  Anyone else notice something strange going on here?

I'm on a Mac as well, using Safari as my primary browser. And, no such issues with me browsing the forums here.

Well I found a malware on my computer, got rid of it.  If I notice it again on this site I will scan it right away again. It may not have been from here, but I never noticed it anywhere else.

Smith and Wesson site  a bit back had someone trying to hack in.  Webroot caught it twice.

Google pop ups are killing me. I've figured out on my old stuff
that as long as I read and surf, no pop ups. As soon as a I post
to a thread, google pop ups go nuts. I've gotten to the point
where I read all the new relevant stuff, post last, then get out
of Dodge.

I'm new here, but using windows 10 with no problems, the ads don't bother me, I realize they help keep the site going. besides there are far fewer ads here than some sites. I am not getting any pop up ads, that would be annoying.

It was not adds. It was trying to change to like 4 web pages at the same time. Lol
