Hi Tes

Tes:
When I ever I open Logos forums these ugly advertisements show up on my computer

Can you post a screenshot showing these ads?

I get a small ad at the bottom of the screen - as below - but it doesn't really get in my way

Tes, it looks like you got some malware (a trojan horse you must have inadvertently clicked on at some point). I see from your screenshot it's called Webexp Enhanced.

I Googled that and found that it appears you can simply uninstall that program via the Control Panel. Try that, and I hope it goes away. Here's a video showing how:

Thanks Tes - looks very annoying!

  • Do you get these ads on either sites or just the Logos ones?
  • I wonder whether these are generated by your service provider?
  • Have you looked at getting any ad blocker software installed? (I haven't so can't advise on what would be helpful.)

Graham

EDIT: Or Rosie's suggestion looks much more helpfulSmile

Tes -

Do you have AdBlock downloaded from the Chrome Web Store?  If not, then that would be my first suggestion.  The link below should take you directly to AdBlock in the Chrome Web Store.

Edit: Rosie had a great suggestion as well.

Josh and Rosie both have good suggestions and I recommend both. As a separate note, if it is malware its removal will possibly disrupt your Internet protocol and you'll lose internet from that computer. This doesn't happen a lot, but wanted to give you a friendly heads up to make sure you have another way to access the internet if this is the case. Malware Bytes is a good program to use for removing malware.

I have had good success detecting and eliminating malware with this free program http://www.malwarebytes.org/

And in the future be careful about clicking anything that offers you free anything, especially offers to speed up your computer, clean up your registry, and stuff like that. It's often malware tricking you into clicking. Go with trusted software only.

Tes, you should also check in Chrome Settings to see if there are any unwanted extensions that got installed without your permission. You might be able to uninstall it there.

I have also been pleased with this program

A friend of mine said the other day, "If the product's free, you're the product" and with software and apps that is generally the case. 

EDIT: Before someone points it out, there are some notable exceptions to this rule in the Open Source community (and some contributors to these forums).

Yup, that's definitely the case with Facebook.
