I followed another threads suggestion and got adblock
. Everything loads so much better now without ads. I always log in to browse. That Peoples ad I was referring to showed up on the right side of the page with all the others and then would take over the whole page for up to 20 seconds before I could get back to the CL page.
I realize that adware can come from anywhere and you may have little control. My system is generally locked down with anti virus/antimalware etc and that ad only showed up on CL so I would say its one of yours gone wild
but no matter they are all gone now.
