    ... for NBC's Blacklist tonight at 10:00 PM are making it through my pop-up blocker. I am using Norton, I guess, and they come through whether I am using Mozilla, IE or AOL for the browser. Is there a way to stop them?

    What happens if you use adblock Plus?

    It looks like the intrusion is being facilitated by AOL. It is prevalent when I use the AOL browser, but I only see vestiges of it using IE and Mozilla when I have opened my AOL home page through those browsers.

    It is now less invasive on the Mozilla-accessed AOL than it was earlier today, even though did not yet download the adBlock Plus add-on that dpeters11 had linked on post #5, so for now, I'm not going to download it so that if it recurrs, I can download then and see if inhibits it. Right now, I don't know if Mozilla went ahead and did something to inhibiot it on their own.

    Try chrome or safari with ad block. If be curios if that don't get rid of the issue. I think it would.

    AOL is worse than a virus. Dump that crap and use Chrome with Adblock Plus.
