Hey all. Am I the only one experiencing the pop ups every time I click on a forum? A page comes up that has "search.google-analytics.com" on it, and a couple times when it popped up my Norton Security blocked an "intrusion attempt." Is anyone else getting these?

I don't run this site, but it's weird that you would get analytics code for a pop up window.

You may say "its only a blank screen", but half the time it will take me to some random site, and every time I click thanks for a post it does it, as well as clicking on individual threads and forums in general.

it may be an ad that is affecting google chrome, but i've surfed as much as anyone on finheaven the last few days and not once have I had this error. Firefox and IE is what I use.

Thanks guys. I stopped using Chrome on my desktop and downloaded a plug in on firefox that should stop this script from running. Thank you for the help

with our track record of "bad" ads in the past i'm not saying it isn't possible, just takes more data to run something down. thanks for your patience.

Sounds more like an issue I had last year with my work computer. I had some sort of spyware stuck in my computer that no matter what site you were on, it would redirect you to another site. Basically, it is called a hijacked browser. The thing that works for me is ComboFix. Download this free program and run it once on your computer, it will really clean things up and should end those problems you are having.

I may have had the same thing. I would go to a site and it would redirect to an advertisement, a landing page that is. But I HIGHLY suggest not to just download combofix and run it, unless you know how to run and get rid of maleware. I would suggest going to a maleware help forum and follow the rules and let a professional help you. They don't charge you, but they help you clean your computer within a couple days.

Not sure what advertisement companies you were allowing on finheaven, but by looking at the site it looks like all your ads are from google content network and a few from tribal fusion which is all going to be legit advertisement. Other companies can pay you higher per CPM and you might get more money if you deal direct with advertisers/affiliates.
