I'm really not getting any of that Astwood.

CAN ANYONE ELSE LOOKING IN TELL US IF YOU ARE GETTING THE SAME PROBLEMS PLEASE
Any suggestions Volty?

Volty should no the pop up is in German


I have looked up Delta Wars and found that it is a browser based war game. They do have a German version.
Astwood, if you have ever played the game then it could be due to cookies and such like that the Delta Wars site has dumped on you.
If you haven't played it then I suspect your PC is infected with Adware.

If your PC is continually running slowly then you almost certainly have an infection, Malware and Adware programs spend a lot of time downloading crap from the internet onto your PC.
You should do a scan using any means you trust.

I had to delete cookies today to solve a problem with another site. This meant when I just clicked on this site I did not automatically log in, and immediately I got this Delta wars thing come up and half block the screen.If I pressed the x at the top rh corner (as you usually do to come out of a page) then it launched the site. However, if you pressed the little square beside it, then it disappeared. Bloody Germans have to be diffferent !!. Now when I click on my link and (as cookies or whatever are active) it goes straight to new posts, then Delta Wars does not come up.
Hope that makes sense.

I suggest no one clicks on Astoness's link. Just use it as a warning of something to avoid.
Monsters Mash is another war game.

That make perfect sense Mike.

I suggest anyone getting these popups delete any suspect cookies they have.
If you don't know which cookies are suspect then delete all cookies except those you are sure about, banking, shopping, etc, but delete all forum and social media cookies regardless.
It means logging back in the long way for the sites concerned but worth the effort.
Failing the above, delete all cookies. I hate doing that but sometimes it has to be done, especially if you have many hundreds of cookies.

That's German for Congratulations.

This is definitely the work of Adware and/or Malware

Perhaps your Adware/Malware is German and only reacts when you view German web pages, such as Xobor forums.
Try some other German websites, reputable ones only, of course.
