    Anyone else getting popups from BetterSurf? Seems like it just started today and from what I can tell it's only with this site and it's driving me crazy.

    Unless I am mistaken you have malware on your computer. There should be no bettersurf pop up coming from this site that I am aware of.

    Seems that way, there was an extension added my a third party on my google chrome. Issue is fixed, the odd thing was it only had pop ups and ads on this site.

    If you just disabled the extension double check and go into C:\Program Files (x86) and I bet you find a BetterSurf file. Manually delete it.

    Stay off them porn sites at work! :)

    It looks like from India or Pakistan. Them marketers have no scruples.

    Dunno about porn, some of us out here struggle with TTR-addiction.

    Seems to afflict only wannabe, current & former truck drivers.

    A few significant others...

    Once infected, no known antidote.

    Well... the ban hammer (no fun there!)
