Hmmmm, I didn''t see anything strange. I re-freshed 6 times and they were all the normal ps vendors. What new advertisers are showing up on your screen?

all kinds of weird stuff. saying i won a prize...you have 5 messages,plus all kinds of different advertisments that has nothing to do with jewelry.
the advertisment changes everytime when i re-fresh. i haven''t click on any yet ,cuz don''t wanna take a chance of catching a computer virus.

Wow, thats odd. I only get pricescope vendor ads. Never anything else. Could you have a virus on your computer?

You likely have Spyware! Either that, or you''re spending far too much time on PS, and now your eyes are going "buggy" playing tricks on you!

If you use Firefox, the AddblockPlus addon will take care of it. If you use Opera, you can put in the pricescope ad address to block it.

your computer is infested with spyware.
Download and run malwarebytes

Do not do any online shopping or banking until you get it cleaned up.
Then change your passwords.

I was just about to tell you what karl said. But yeah, you have something bad! Don''t do anything especially private on your computer until you run some anti-virus software.

Make sure you get rid of your temporary internet files or clean your cache also and run another virus scan before doing anything involving personal info. Sometimes you can pick things up from the most innocent appearing websites - you just never know where a virus may be lurking so having a good anti virus defender is an excellent precaution.
