I had the Amazon popups show up but only in my android phone. Had to run malware software for those ads. It was always Amazon ads, so I suspected malware rather than the usual popups.

Just wanted to add that my aging laptop loads SparkPeople screens much faster without all the ads.

I purchased the Premium a few months ago and it is GREAT! Ads gone!! I did the one time fee ($25 if I remember correctly) rather than $5 month.

It sounds like you could have some malware on your computer that's causing it to happen, so I would run a scan of your computer for it and see if it finds anything.

Yes, Premium will take that away. But you should always be able to close out of an ad, which is why I wondered if something is going on with one of our ads that we need to look into.

You should only see a certain number of popup ads daily. Do you seem to be seeing them regularly? If so, is it on specific pages or everywhere?
