    Perhaps you have become victim of something that has installed itself in your browser.

    Check your browser for adware, incorrect home page setting, unwanted plug ins, etc.

    It's one of the ads on this site from AdChoices. It says something about 'Focus' and plays loud music that you can't turn down. Click the close box and it's back in a minute or two.

    Yeah. I'd run malwarebytes, then your antivirus followed by any windows updates as a starting point. If it continues you are gonna have to go more in depth.

    You caused this. You went to some website, which then is causing the ad companies to suggest this ad for you. You can go into your browser and clear history, cache, and cookies which will wipe it all clean. This reminds me of a dummy that came on here awhile back complaining that he was getting ads from porn sites and sugar daddy sites. I bet he was a bit embarrassed to learn that everyone knew where and why he was seeing these ads....

    OK, I guess it's a personal problem... I checked my pop-up blocker, security settings, etc. but didn't see anything out of order. Only happens on this site. I'll clear everything and start over with this browser.

    Thanks for the input, guys!
