Searched the computer with 4 different AV and none of them detects any viruses and it only happens here on delphi.
(and yes, sorry. Wasn't ment to be clickable links. Maybe I can edit that. Was only trying to inform of the URL;s)

They all lead to casino, free spins, lottery crap etc etc.

Are you on a mobile device or computer... which operating system? Editing to ad - sorry I just reread your post and you said computer! :)

Don't worry about the links being clickable - it's great that you included them.

Virus might not be the right word, we seem to have so many words for things these days. A lot of this crap gets downloaded along with other software/apps. Another member and I were finding the same offer popping up when we'd visit sites (he this one, Delphi and me another) on our ipad/iphones I could see it was tied to a cookie on my system but it repeatedly came back. Eventually is stopped happening with me but I think he continued to have the problem.

I was going to see if I could hunt down a removal method for you but I'd need a bit more info about your system or device and the pop up itself (name of the casino or any test that appears on the ad would help)

The ads at Delphi like many sites are provided by an ad service. They use thousands of ads. I only suspect that is what might trigger the pop up blizzard. Pop ups are not a part of Delphi or it's ad suppliers normal operation. @Gunter can you confirm that.

I don't think this is the same one but it explains it a bit better

sorry for butting in...have you tried Malwarebytes? Also, try to empty your Internet cache/history. If you use Chrome, just clear Browsing Data (chrome://history/) from the Beginning of Time (much safer). Also, go to Control Panel--->Internet Options. Go to Security tab and search inside Trusted Sites (click Sites). Sometimes these nasty malwares insert themselves as a Trusted Site.

Gunter,

I came across this thread as I am now experiencing the same continuous pop up as Paul and was wondering if was ever resolved. I only get this on my Ipad (never my PC) and only on the Delphi Forums site. It does not matter which particular forum - I get them on all, including this one. But here’s an interesting twist - I only get the pop up when connected to my WiFi, which is making me wonder whether the problem is in my IPad or my router, which may have become infected.

If you can kindly update me on any progress from your side it would be appreciated. I am considering changing my router, but would first like to see if you have any input.

Thank you,
Steve
