    Default Android "virus warnings".

    Several times while using an android device to view this site I get redirects that tell you that your device has a virus and prompts you to download their crap.

    I have to close chrome and restart each time.

    Does anyone know what ad on this site is causing this?

    I don't get any virus warnings but I do get redirected, quite often, to various app sites. It does get frustrating at times. Sometimes I can just exit the internet and then get right back in to the links page I was on but that doesn't always work.

    Didn't realize I posted this in the android thread.

    Ok, cool, wasn't sure if it was on my end. Tried logging on thru Safari( iPhone) and it was slow as well.

    Tapatalk app crashed too.

    That was what I was getting a few days ago...it would say "you're infected" or something like that and redirect to an app to "help".

    It happened a month or so ago to me as well.

    Yesterday while browsing on here using Firefox on my desktop PC the VHL window was taken over by a popup add out of no where. I couldn't tell you what the pop up was because I closed out immediately. For me the weird thing was this happened after being on the site for about 10 minutes. I've had it happen on my android phone before but it would usually happen just as I logged in.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    I have the same problem using an iphone - ads.ad4game.com redirects to adtrack.king.com while opening the app store. Sometimes you can stop it for a few seconds by pressing the back button twice while it redirects. On an ipad, it just opens the app store without the redirect.

    It's probably advertising stuff I'm using. I'll look into it.

    Ok so I've reinstalled the mobile style for the forum. If you're on a mobile device it's going to force you into the mobile style. That will keep the weird ad units from doing strange things on your phone. However if you switch to the regular version of the site while on your phone or mobile device, then yes you might get weird ads that force you to the App Store etc. My advice to you is to use Tapatalk or the mobile version on your phone, and the normal site when you're on a regular computer. I find it impossible to really look at the regular site on my phone anyway.

    So hopefully all the problems will be solved.

    I am trying one ad unit on the mobile site at the top so let's see how that goes.
