    Ah thanks for that, I hadn't thought about them being linked like that. I will try to clear out both my phone and the iPad now. As it is right now, I can be logged in here for a max of about 15 minutes before a pop up shows up. Hopefully clearing both will eliminate that issue, thank you!

    @BlackSheep be aware that some of them can be a real pain. One in paticular took several times clearing all the devices before I got rid of it. I also now run Malware antivirus on all devices.

    I had the same thing happen to me on my iPad. I just installed an ad-blocker and it got rid of it for me. That is odd that it keeps popping up on this website.

    I find it problematic on the computer til I log in. It's the worst for intrusive (?) ads of any site I use (not sure how to describe). I think I posted about it a long time ago but it continues - I have to log in fast!

    Ad-blocker FTW. I don't worry about ads on any site.

    Thanks, and yep this is a real pain indeed. I've tried clearing both devices simultaneously a few times, but now the pop ups have increased from showing up after about 20 minutes with cookies enabled, to within a couple of minutes. Still only happens here on the photo forum; if I'm on other forums I have no issues.

    I've seen other people mention ad blockers, but since this is the only website where I'm having trouble I have not taken the time to investigate that.

    Just wanted to say thanks smoke665 for trying to help!

    As I mentioned earlier I now run Malware, might be time to investigate something similar.
