are we relying on Ads now because It's so anoying with these Ads everywhere..
And like my GASR will load when I click on something new and the page will just like shutter and then be longer bc of the huge ad at the top that's blocked by my adblockclickclick
Just wondering because I've never seen this stuff before.

i don't see ads anywhere, i have ad block as well. last time i had that problem, it's because my chrome was infected. ;; v ;;

i had that too for a while, not only on gasr but everywhere.
check if there's an unwanted extension
on your chrome
if you do have one and you can't unable/delete it,
you'll have to uninstall anything suspicious from control panel > uninstall programs,
should be gone then

Thanks for the feedback!
But I just looked at my extensions and there's nothing there, and also there's nothing suspiciously added into my things on my computer when I check the programs in my control panel... It's just there..
The thing is called "SmartSuggestor"

Good chance you got a piece of Malware as that sounds exactly like a piece of one. The only ads GASR has are user-based ads that our members pay to have on here. The biggest bug those have is if your internet is slow or you stop loading the page the banner loads vertically rather than being a normal changing banner (see bottom of GASR page)
If you recently downloaded/updated IMVU they have been putting Malware in their updates as optional content. Always click no. I have Malware on my computer I can't get rid of other than whipping it clean which isn't an option. Malwarebytes gets rid of a lot of it however. Do a scan with that.

Thank you so much!
And yeah, last time i was on I updated IMVU..
I'm currently running a scan and I've found one thing.
Hopefully I can get rid of it.

Well actually I just did a scan and got rid of everything..
It's still not working.
I have no viruses/harm in my computer and I have no programs or extensions that have to do with that ad..
Unless If I uninstall IMVU?click

No... thats a part of your extensions.
Only things involving your actual browser do that.
Also gasr is ad free til december

did you check your programs? it could also be in there. Usually its the extensions tho.
| Thu 16 Oct 2014, 2:44 pm|
There isn't anything that hasn't been downloaded within the last week..
| Thu 16 Oct 2014, 2:45 pm|
Maybe uninstall your browser? and reinstall cause like the only time this has happened to me is if I accidentally enabled an extension
| Thu 16 Oct 2014, 2:47 pm|
I don't relaly wanna uninstall it tho
Because I don't want to delete all of my bookmarks. :[
Should I just quarantine them instead of ignoring them?
Before the huge malware update It never ignored them, It simply got rid of them and asked me to restart my computer. Now all it does is just ignores it?? and then they just reappear like wtf
| Thu 16 Oct 2014, 2:56 pm|
it doesn't delete your bookmarks LOL. atleast it never did when I uninstalled it.
and yea might as well quarantine. your computer probably has ebola ):
| Thu 16 Oct 2014, 3:15 pm|
