Well actually it was three things, and they were less FUNNY than STRANGE and ANNOYING,
- and it was while I was viewing the DPR forums, anyway...
1. Suddenly, while AdBlock Plus was working away my screen filled with ads. And searches included
a half dozen entries called "Outrageos Ads" before the normal search results.
2. Suddenly I was getting a notification to upgrade to Skype 7.4 in the Win10 notification area. Now this was
weird because Skype had updated itself in the usual way to the latest 7.1x two days before.
3. I suddenly got the result of a system check by a program I had not even installed.
So what had I been doing that was different? Just one thing: I allowed AdBlock Plus to let me watch something
(which I think was on You-tube but now can't remember). Some minor video about something.
Well I had to uninstall two separate programs that had installed themselves: some Tune-up thing, and the
"Outrageous Ads" thing. I had blamed AdBlock Plus, and unfairly so.
No kidding, it was a pestilence this morning. It hasn't happened for a few hours now, so I hope it's fixed.
A bit of and transpired too
MORAL, if any: Leave AdBlock Plus bluRRy well alone and DON'T watch any video that wants to change it.
Am(barrassed, having learnt a lesson).
