Today I have had two adds show up on my screen, without having been clicked. This has never happened on Hubpages, to me.
The first one zoomed onto the screen from the left side, as I was about half way through reading the hub.
The second time, I had scrolled down to see a reply comment when the page was redirected to a survey.
Is this some new add program Hubpages is trying out, or is this something new with Google?
I'll give it a try, Sunforged. I hope it is not a Hubpages problem.
I just ran a spyware scan, and it found nothing.
@Ralwus: Great to see you! Hope you are getting better fast.
Hi Ivorwen. Thanks, good to see you too. Well, it is slow, but I'm gaining on it. I'm very lucky. All you guys praying for me did it ya know?
Google adsense doesn't allow pop-advertisers on publisher sites(as per TOS) So this must be some spyware and not ad on HP.
Hey Ivorwen, I saw one of those pop-ups you were talking about. It came from within the tool bar. I don't think it has anything to do with HubPages, but I could be wrong.
I opened one Hub this morning, and it was a very small pop up window, on the new tab I opened. It was a survey of some kind and again, I don't know where it came from.
My system is fully protected as well. I have a firewall and virus shield/scanner.
I know that was much help, but at least you are now not the only one who has seen it.
Just got redirected to a survey, on a page that I know only has HubPages adds on it. My machine is protected through multiple systems. I have not had this type of trouble on any other site, and am quite a few every day.
I just got redirected to a survey page while I was in the midst of typing an answer to a comment, so I know I didn't click on anything.
Someone in the ad network has slipped in an ad they shouldn't be running.
Admin, a report with screen shot is headed your way.
I thought it was a survey from hubpages and I clicked on it will this send google after me?
It popped up as soon as I clicked start a new hub.
Lol, well , I would have swore it was a spyware/adware problem, but that annoying survey got me last night also. Unfortunately, I just clicked back and forgot about it so Im not sure what page or ad triggered it.

I had 11 Editors Choice hubs. I noticed today that I only have 10 of them now. I don't remember exactly which hub lost the EC status but I have a feeling it might be a hub that has become unfeatured due to engagement. If an EC hub becomes unfeatured due to engagement does it lose EC status? And if...
