Whenever I use this site, I keep getting popups to malware/scams.

 

They're really annoying, too, have to close the entire browser because they keep popping up with dialogue boxes like "Security Alert, call this number: xyz" etc, and closing that box opens another, and you can't close the tab.

 

This isn't affecting me on Ignition.Customsforge, by the way.

Are you sure this isfor the forums, and not the download links? Some websites such as zippyshare is awful with this. I always advise everyone to have malwarebytes and an activate antivirus running

It's not the site you have a pup in your browser cache or history I had the same problem even with antivirus and malware protection programs it didn't pick it up. I found ADW cleaner and it took care of my problem it's owned by malware bytes.

I've never experienced anything like that. I'd say check your system.

Definitely on the forums, it just randomly pops up without even clicking anything.

I'll try ADW cleaner

I've already run an Avast and Malwarebytes scan, I'll try ADW cleaner as JSJ suggested. 

 

I'm not sure it's a problem on my end, though. Of the many (many) sites I visit, this is the only one that it does it on.

Update: Run ADW Cleaner and it deleted 4 registry keys called something along the lines of cast platform.

 

If I don't post again, it's safe to assume that either the problem is solver, or it got worse and my computer blew up :P
