Whoa.Popups

I I never clicked on any of their ‘helpful' offers, but actually found it really annoying because it got in the way of whatever I was trying to look at. 0 I had the same experience as you! You could avoid the X button here but I see no reason to to do it, since it can impact in the user flow if they are used to close everything What it shows is that there's a whole army of companies desperate to make money out of computer users, by hook or by crook.

I'm experiencing serious popups, fake system prompts and overall slow performance/browsing. Thank you SO much for explaining this. Then a few hours later, I wanted to pin something and I added the Pin button. Loading...

  • I've been trying to figure out where these horrid visual deals ads were coming from for the past week and you're the first person to mention the evil Pinterest extension.
  • But Cancel is always the default, and always the thing that happens when you press Escape or click X.

Searched "visual deals spam" and you came right to the top! Please ignore any entry it finds and the offer to buy the program to remove the entry, as we will address this later. What kind of screw is this? I had the wrong Pinterest extension installed, too.

I just re-edit to make it clear. –nsn Feb 12 '16 at 16:33 @nsn Thank you for clarifying. That stupid visual deals ad has been driving me crazy and you made it so easy to solve. Not only is it a very good UX, it's also the one your users are most likely the most familiar with by far - that's a huge item on the "pro" You just saved me a lot of aggravation trying to figure this out =) Karri Flatla recently posted..Lethbridge Real Estate Market Update: September 2013 0 likes Reply K October 8, 2013

catdaddy Sep 13, 2014 10:28 PM (in response to luvscritters2) luvscritters2, One usually wonders how such infiltrated their system. Should seemingly arbitrary things like "play piano for Church" or "intramural badminton" go on M.S. I'm just glad that I no longer have to deal with these pop ups. If any of those don't work, it will result in a tiny frustration and those can add up quickly.

Sorry for my ignorance here,but I don't know a whole lot about this stuff. Hayton Sep 13, 2014 9:52 PM (in response to luvscritters2) You've got Adware on your system. It is essentially the same program with a new paintjob; Ewido currently can still be updated to the newest definitions, but this support will likely not last forever.

So annoying!!!

No: Place both an OK or Close button plus a X button. Glad to have found your thread! 0 likes Reply Dan June 13, 2014 Seriously cannot thank you enough!!
