    Twice now in the last two days when I go to open the site, I've gotten a "Google" popup saying I've won $1000. Has this happened to anyone else? It doesn't happen with any of my other bookmarked internet sites.

    We have had one other report of this, and another admin answered that member with this reply:

    "It sounds like you may have encountered some adware along the way. Please try deleting your cookies and cache and restarting your system."

    I try not to use Chrome; it drives me crazy. Weird that I'm only getting it from this particular website.
