    There’s not a software weakness. Just occasionally a rogue ad gets into the network and it takes the agency a bit of time to identify where it’s coming from. There’s no security threat to your device though or anything to worry about. It’s just fucking annoying. You can read more about it here:

    Quite interesting. Very annoying as you say. This one was particularly bad because 10 seconds wasn’t enough time to tell you about it.

    If they’re individually targeted I’m expecting a picture of Mangala’s stupid face throwing millions of pounds in the air :-)

    can you recommend a free adware cleaner for a Windws 10 PC with a chrome browser - it's a pop up theatre? Total AV is one of the worst!
