Without signing out myself, I keep coming back and finding that I'm signed out of the forum. Is it my computer or is something else going on? Also, There's an ad - from Delta airlines this time, on your homepage. It has nothing to do with Gameboomers. What's going on? My computer or your forum again?

I don't have any ads here at all... You might run scans with your CCleaner and Malwarebytes.

I have the same issue from time to time (actually just now) smile Drac - you don't see ads on the Homepage? I sure do.

I just ran CCleaner. The ad there now is Star Wars. It's from that "adchoices" that follows you around all over the internet.

The ad on the homepage (right side above the 3 small banners) has been there since December. It was a test run - still deciding if I will keep it. smile
It will show only ads on sites that you have visited or are related.
So it will be different for each browser/user.

As for the logging out - please be sure to clear your cookies (under MY Place) and your temporary folder.

No, I don't see any ads at all on the home page other than Big Fish, Shiny Loot and Adventure Shop. I don't use the home page that much as my Bookmark takes me straight to the forums. I do use Do Not Track Me, so maybe it's actually working.

Alternatively, installing AdBlock does away with all ads completely. I use it and would recommend it. It's a free program.

I especially hate ads targeted at me because of websites I've been to. Get Do Not Track Me from the developer Abine here. It is an add-on for your browser... I believe Firefox has it in their Extensions page. Chrome may too...

Do Not Track Me

Hi. I also get signed out of Gameboomers but only on my Cyberpower PC. I've given up hope since it has been that way since I got that PC.
I decided to also download Do Not Track Me. I'm not so sure about what I did on that. I put a bogus email address on it, the realized I should have used a good one. Oh well, will delete it and try again.
After reading all of the posts on here I went into Google to do some checking and low and behold my Google said "My Search Dial", I am so tired of this. I pay to search the web and by the time you d/load all of the programs you need to keep your pc safe, you have little space to d/load what you want.
I decided to go into my Chrome settings, it's a mess!
Manage Search Engines: Yahoo, Avg Secure Search, Conduit, Bing, Delta Search, Avg Secure Search, Do Search, My Search Dial, Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask, and AOL. To the side I have something about Omnibox. How do I get rid of all of this? mad

"Omnibox" is part of Chrome -- their special word for "Address Bar."

Chrome allows you to tweak it in the settings.

The list of search engines is just a default list provided by Chrome.
It's not necessary to get rid of it, but if you wish to change it, there are instructions on the Chrome site

Ok, but I don't think I'm supposed to have My Search Dial when I click on my Google icon. I never have had that before. Then it shows it's not encrypted, isn't that a problem?

Haven't a clue what I did but I did get rid of MySearchDial toolbar!!!!!!!!! Got Google back. smile

Oops, looks like I lied. Went back and clicked on Google and got Mysearchdial again. Did something else, clicked on icon again, got Google search, next time got mysearchdial, etc. This is driving me crazy! Any advice?

I downloaded and installed Do Not Track Me. We'll see how it works out. Thanks.

I think I first need to get rid of this My Search Dial first. I can't find it anywhere on my PC. If I remove Google Chrome and re-install will I retain my favorites?
