Popups. Heating help.com

Getting tons of spam pop-ups on this site and only on this site. Every time I log on to this site only my pop-up blocker goes crazy. Some of your advertisers may not be on the up-and-up.

    Pop ups are constant battle to control for both websites and consumers.
    I have not had any issues using Chrome in Windows 10.
    You might check and see if your computer has adware as well

    I've had no problems at all. Edge and Windows 10. Full bore Norton.

    Well I seldom use my PC which has windows 10. I use my iPad. No problems. However when I tried to type this post the curser was in the box, and wouldn't let anything I typed show. I had to close out, and come back.

    Deffinetly no pop ups though.

    I get them too. Not every time I come here, but often I get a ton of blocked pop ups.

    Thanks, Brandon. We've looked into this and haven't found anything. Our ad servers do not allow pop-ups. (We hate pop-ups too.) They may be coming from unwanted software or malware on your system. I recommend checking for suspicious apps or programs and running your anti-virus software.

    I am having same issue. Pop ups getting instantly blocked. Not having this issue on any other websites. Not really affecting my usage of heatinghelp. I am using an Android phone. Will try to check on the PC later.

    I just got a brand new Android phone two weeks ago. The first website I went on was this one and i got instantly hit with the pop ups. Strangely enough it hasn't happened the last few days

    Seems like an intermittent problem. Had it happen earlier today and right now nothing.

    As @Erin Holohan Haskell said, if heatinghelp.com is not serving popup ads, then the site is not the cause of the ads on your PC or mobile phone, especially since this is not the experience of most users on this site. Likely it's another app or, perhaps, something surreptitiously installed by another site previously visited or malware already on your phone or PC.

    I've never had a problem on my apple devices with viruses, or pop ups, and I don't have antivirus,adware, or malware software that I had to purchase.

    Some believe apple is over priced garbage. I was anti apple for years until I jumped ship. That's fine to each their own. All I know is iPads are worth their weight in gold when using in construction. Pro Core is an awesome program which can be run on any device, but the iPad is much better.

    Okay @ChrisJ let me have it :D

    I only get it when I use my Android phone on Google Chrome. I run antivirus on my phone a few times and never come up with anything. And for some reason it's only on this website. Idk.
