I have paid member status and run Adblock Plus so I don't really see ads. I've got to wonder if you guys have been infected with Adware on your devices.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

I have Adblock in chrome and AVG on my laptop. It pulls all ads, but never gets those within the threads

I'm not seeing anything like that.

Yes, that's part of the problem greywolf, it's the ones within the threads themselves that are most annoying.

Hello,

You shouldn't see ads in the middle of threads while you are logged in. which browser are you seeing them in and if possible, can you please take a screenshot of the ads while you are logged in?

Thank you!

run in this order:
https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner
AdwCleaner Download
https://www.malwarebytes.org/products/ [download free version]
-all this software is free and a good step in the right direction to clean your PC.

I am a professional, and use this software almost daily. Do this at your own risk.

Yep. For sure now since the Administrator said Stromtrooper does not inject ads into threads, those seeing them have adware on their machines. Whenever I start seeing such intrusions, I restore Windows to the last restore point before they started. If you've been seeing such ads for a long time, use fatalerror's tools.
