    Default Annoying ads on RR

    Recently I've been seeing random words on the forums highlighted in blue and underlined. When I hover over them, an ad pops up. I have adblock plus so these are the only ads I have seen on my computer for a while. Recently I accidentally deactivated all my plugins (which is around when I started noticing it) but I enabled them all and I still have the problem. Someone fix it for me! I'm not the most computer savvy person so don't make fun of me

    I've experienced that in the past with some sites. Most likely it has to do with something on your computer. The links will redirect you to another site. I suggest you look at the name of the site and use Google to search for solutions.

    I think I got it fixed. Apparently it installed itself when I updated something. Thanks for the input!

    Sorry for the ads guys and gals, but the site doesn't pay for itself you know.

    He's not talking about the regular ads. He's talking about the words that are hyper- links in the posts and such. Which I don't think is to do with the site..

    We should try and support these things as much as possible. Like Doc said, site doesn't pay for itself, and it isn't free.

    Enjoy your day RR.

    It's not the on site ads I was talking about. It was hyperlinks that I accidentally installed with something

    hahahaha. That's actually hilarious, cause back in the day I used to visit my nana and use her laptop and it had those.
