Candy bar survey

15 posts in this topic

What's up with this pop-up survey asking me about candy bars every time I log-in? I've filled it out 3 times and it still pops up. Anyone else getting this?

Could you send me a screenshot? We can have ads removed, and it sounds like perhaps some rogue ad is misbehaving. I've never seen that.

I don't think it's coming from us. You're using IE? What version? Can you paste the URL for the "ad" in here?

I've filed a support ticket to have it removed if it is indeed coming from us.

You were right, it was a browser issue. I switched to G-Chrome at work, no pop-ups now. Thanks for your help. If you still want the URL I can send it tomorrow at work (I use Mac at home and don't have to worry about these silly PC issues ;-) ).

Yeah we've established that it's Internet Explorer. I think it has something to do with the ads for Milky Way at the top right.

Interesting. My in laws went to Kenya and Nigeria last year but they never mentioned the unavailability of candy bars. Bummer for you! When are you getting back? Hopefully before the Masters! ;) P.S. Go MSU!!! ;)

LOL ... and I was only giving you crap because of your facebook declaration!

BTW, I have the Izzo's going to the elite eight ... and then losing to eventual champion Iowa State.  (I don't know anything about basketball this year except that UCLA looked damn good in the Pac-12 tournament)

If you do have an issue with recurring/suspicious ads, or "adware", you can always uninstall IE which will default you to the version that was packaged with your Operating System. Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features > View Installed Updates. Right-click on IE and uninstall. The next time that you open IE, you should be prompted to update your version of IE or you can simply manually install the update by going to Microsoft's download center. Just an FYI. This is usually the easiest way to remove unwanted ads, addons, toolbars, etc. without downloading additional third-party anti-adware/malware software.

I use Google Chrome and get this too. I disabled my pop up blocker. Other than having to close it out, it really doesn't bother me.
