    Hi all,

    I keep getting this Error Safe message on my computer and it also appears on my friend's. It pops up and takes you to a website, making it difficult to get back to where you were as it gives you more pop ups.

    f.p.i.a...

    I'll attach a picture of the window.

    Any ideas anyone?

    This is a deceptive advertisement triggered by the website you are visiting at the time. We've had that sneak into our ad rotation at times.

    Actually, this message frequently comes up on sites used to find journal articles, law sites, business forums, and sometimes when I am trying to stream video (no, not porn).

    Ignoring it is difficult. Clicking on either button does the same thing, which is take you to another website instantly and it almost takes over your browser. Huge pain when in the middle of research.

    EDIT: ah ok, thanks arn. I've never seen it here, but I believe you ;-)
