Content Tracker
« on: June 09, 2014, 03:11:40 PM »
As of today Chrome as been opening content tracking ads in new tabs when I click links. It may or may not be exclusive to this site. I haven't been able to make it deliberately trigger elsewhere.

Usually I can find a solution myself, but no luck. What in the eff is going on? It's really rough ridin' annoying.

Some sort of malware/virus. I did some research, addressed an issue with my adware cleaner not updating and it fixed the issue after I ran it.

If it ever happens again these are both great at preventing that crap
