I'm getting Pop Ads via Google Chrome / Safari / Firefox all of a sudden in the last 2 weeks. I use a Mac Book Pro OS X (10.6.4). I've never had pop up problems w/ Mac before, I've been using Mac for a few years.  I've also been using Google Chrome ever since it came out and haven't had any pop ups occur.  However, in the last 2 weeks, I'm getting pop ups all the time.  Sometimes when I click a link, it redirects me to a pop up first.  My settings on Chrome are still set to "Do not allow any site to show pop-ups."  However, they are still popping up.  How do I stop the pop ups?

Updates:

  • Also, even if I don't click a link, I'm getting pop ups. 4/24/11
  • I've ran 2 different Anti-Virus programs (Sophos & MacScan) and done a full scan w/ both and it comes back as clean --> no virus / malware detected.  Also, seems like i'm also getting pop ups on Safari and FireFox as well.  Altho the frequency on those is less than Google Chrome.  Any other Mac user facing this issue? 11:21 AM
