I'm getting bombarded with rollover ads today in particular. Feels like I cant move my mouse 4 inches without tripping a pop-up.

I just got a pop-up ad from Scorecard Research.com. It's the first pop-up on DZ.com that's sneaked through since I switched to Firefox with Ad Blocker. FYI.

Since a couple of days I've been getting login prompts (!) from traveladvertising.com. Initially THREE times for every dz.com page visited with Opera, but installing Ghostery takes it down to "only" one per page.

Can this be fixed please?

Screenie can be found here: http://www.xs4all.nl/...am/fonz/spamshot.jpg

This recently started occurring for *every* page loaded from dropzone.com. Clicking cancel only leads to a new prompt, after cancelling three times the page is finally displayed. Running Opera's Ghostery extension (with "bug" blocking enabled) reduces this to one prompt per page loaded.

You may need a registry cleaner...

Thanks for the suggestion but no, I don't. Registries are a Windows thing and I use something else.

However, the login prompts appear to be gone now.

I'm still somewhat curious as to what caused it in the first place because it just isn't supposed to happen. My educated guess though, is that it's more likely that some of Opera's internals don't function entirely properly on long continuous runs than that it's the advertiser's fault.

Thanks everybody.

Even though you're using a different platform, is it possible that it's adware that needs to be cleaned?

Possible? I suppose so.
Likely? Theoretically Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman could both fall in love with me and not mind sharing Wink

It's probably just something internal that goes wrong with Opera when it's kept running for a long time.

I'm getting a pop-up add on every page I open. If I navigate anywhere within DZ.COM it waits a few beats then opens. I can close it but it is back each time I navigate to a page or back. I have not found a page here that it does not open with.

FYI, the "Visit Orlando" ads are popping all over my DZ.com screens today when on my smartphone (Android).
