URGENT! Annoying POP up message on forums

I have been on the detailing section and the Europe section in the last few minutes and an annoying pop up message comes up at the top of the screen telling me I have won an Iphone 4s. Clearly I havent and I just ignored it but this should not be allowed on the CRZ forum.

Im using Google Chrome browser. Its not the kind that gets blocked with pop up killer.

Admin can you get rid of the advert in case its malware or something.

Im still being told by MediaJMP that I have won an iPhone 4S... Its an advert not a pop up as such but still dont expect to see this sort of thing on a quality forum.

I reported your post to Mike CR-Z to check into it. You did nothing wrong and thanks for letting us know.

There is nothing that we have installed as an advert that would pop up like that.

Does anyone else have this issue? I myself have not had it and suspect we would get a lot more reports if everyone did.

I'm pretty sure you have a malware in your computer.... I don't get any pop ups while browsing on the forums... have you tried using firefox? or explorer to see if it does the same thing?

Does it using Chrome and Firefox. They are not pop up in the true sense just annoying adds in the add boxes but have the click yes or no to accept type thing which I fully expect would if clicked result in redirect of some sort clicking YES or NO. I wish i could explain the advert better sorry. Anyway I just ignore them as dont interfere with the forum.

I run avast anti Virus , Spybot search and Destroy, Spyware Blaster and also run Malwarebytes checks and all as usual come back with no issues so as sure as i can be my computers is fine. Besides saw the adverts on my ipad as well. I cant see them at the moment to take a screen print if i do Ill post back. I have pop up blocker activated on all browsers and I dont get any issues on any other websites.

CCleaner is a great program and I use it regularly.
