Guys, if the ad is a pop-up and/or is redirecting you when you click anywhere on the page, this might be of use to you:
  1. Instead of right-clicking and inspecting, press F12.
  2. Click inside the inspect element screen, and press Ctrl F
  3. Type "reporting" - that should be enough to find the part of the code you have to screenshot.

uh chrome/windows 10, laptop

popup appeared in upper right corner (ads by wgx faint undertext the actual card was something like accurate weather in your area).

I tried to right mouse click to get an inspect element but mousing over that upper corner area lead to an instant redirect to new page.

when/if it appears again I will try inspect element on whichever banner sidebar ad the popup came from (bc inspect element for me on the popup itself was unsuccessful

Looks like I just had the same problem as everyone else. I'm on chrome/windows 10. I was trying to scavenge but as soon as I clicked the selector to choose gathering location, I was sent to another website that told me that I was hacked and I shouldn't close the new tab. It tried to look like Windows had caught something, but the url said something about diabetes and when my mouse hovered over anything but the window that came up on the tab, my cursor turned into a big black cross.

I quickly exited and saw a popup add on the top left of my screen. I didn't think to gather any info on it since I didn't see this thread before then, but if it happens again, I certainly will. I tried to select the location after all of this only to be sent to the same site. I had to refresh the page before I could interact with fr again.

EDIT: I saw the popup again but not in time to stop myself from clicking the forums link.

Same problem with the anti-virus Macafee (sp) ad as everyone else. Windows 10, Chrome. I have an ad blocker installed, so this is doubly infuriating.

I've been getting these same ads as everyone else as well, Windows 10 Chrome. Blocked a pop-up after it showed. I'll do my best to get a screenshot/inspect the next time I see if, if it pops up again.
