Kicked off the Internet

    Bummer! Twice in a row I was kicked off the Internet by a Flash Player problem with Hubpages. Same thing happened a couple of days ago. Is this related to ads wanting to play or is it something else?

      Not sure what is going on watergeek but the ads on the right side of all my hubs are only showing in code and not loading. There is also an ad under "Related Hubs". It could fool people into clicking on it thinking it is a hub.

        This is the new 'native' ad: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/127468

      watergeek,
      Just yesterday I updated an item which I update regularly so it nothing was different. Until I checked my Programs after the download and found programs which I did not know of which were malware. After un-deleting them from Programs, I did a Boot Scan with my Antivirus to clear the rest.

      It sounds like you're referring to the On the Reel video ads on the sidebar.  Have you updated your Flash Player?  When you say kicked off the internet, what happened on the page? Did you get a script message?

        No script message, nothing. Just boom, my browser shut off (Safari). Then my computer's notification came on, and I do think it was related to Flash Player. However, I have the latest Flash Player that my computer will handle. It's not Intel-based, so I can't upload the very latest. Meanwhile, it ticks me off that ads using Flash Player can go to that extreme. I didn't click on any of them. I was just reading someone's hub.

          I've always despised Adobe for more reasons than I can count. I so wish websites and others wouldn't use them.

    Needless to say, this thread caused me to check my hubs.

    All appears well when using FF and IE. I don't know about Chrome, for some reason it always refuses to get along with my computer and I gave up trying to use it.

    Adobe did a recent Flash update, could be relevant or not.

      paradigmsearch,
      My Antivirus found several errors about Google and recommended that I change my browser. It recommended Yahoo!, for me, but I do use AT&T/Yahoo! mail and have AT&T Internet.

    It may be because you have not updated your Flash player. This happened to me as I have not yet installed the updates for Adobe Flash player but I was not kicked out. I just can't view videos.
