My computer and phone hate this website.

Ever since I've been coming to this forum my computer absolutely hates it. I've tried 3 browsers and every time I try to use this site, my computer slows down and I get messages saying this site is unsafe and full of malware. My phone hates this site too. It's more usable than on my computer but I'll often get spam that pops up. What's with this site?

Zero problems here using a Chrome browser on my PC. I do run adblock software though. Maybe you're having problems with one of the Site's ads?

I am using Safari with my Apple product and no issues to report. What browser are using, what computer are you using, and what smart phone are you using?

My Mac running Safari doesn't have any issues, but my iPhone always gives me popup saying something like I just won a $1M Amazon gift car or something foolish like that.

I've tried Chrome, Firefox, and *barf* Internet Explorer. My phone is Samsung Galaxy S7.

Use an adblocker. I recommend uBlock Origin.

On your S7, you'll have to use something other than the stock Chrome browser. It still bugs me to no end that Google doesn't allow add-ons in Chrome for Android.

I find that if I don't use an adblocker for this site, I get fake "Four Virus" redirect ads CONSTANTLY.

Wow, I never see any ads or popups using Chrome or Firefox. I do to use my phone so I can not comment there.

Try an adblocker and see what happens. I didn’t have an AdBlocker on another site from Honda and I got a lot of ads but once I put the AdBlocker on everything was fine

I only have issues on my Android using chrome on this site. If I use it in incognito mode, then I have no problems. Firefox Focus also works well.

No problems using my home pc either.
