    Sometimes the ad code that gets delivered isn't built right and can cause this. I'll see what I can find.

    I have this too. It pops over the top couple of links on my user CP page. Very annoying. Ad is invisible, there is no actual ad, but it takes over the top half of the screen.

    Absolutely.

    I assume you'll be personally financing the site in their place?

    After reading this, I turned off AdBlock for this domain. Shortly thereafter, Windows Defender reported infection with two trojans. Any ideas?

    You definitely need to give me more details than that. What "trojans"? Trojans typically very rare to occur in ads, especially in modern browsers which are all sandboxed. Even if the ad network itself gets compromised, the trojan has to make it through all of the other protections of the machine.

    I was in the process of trying to document that when Hilarie managed to severely distract me by throwing a shitter about something. Unfortunately, a side effect of the shitter was me inadvertently clearing the Defender logs. There were two reported; Defender reported "Trojan:" in front of each; one the name of the first started with win32.I know that ain't shit, but it's what I got.

    Having done some more research, I don't think RM's the source of these entries, it's a false positive kicked off by an NVidia driver update...
