    I too find full page ads opening up on me. And the only way to close it is to close the broser. Chrome. Ive tried Malwarebytes. Actually ive been running it for a year now. Android system. Now on the home computer it dont happen. Drives me crazy. Ive tried a couple other anti virus programs and they never finds an issue but it keeps happening.

    I was hoping it was an SRP issue! This would have told me i dont have a virus or adware issue but i guess im stuck. Even did a factory reset.

    Thinking next step is changing brousers. I use Firefox at home. Guess i could put it on my phone too. Thanks for asking the question OP. It has helped me to get a little closer to my issue/fix.

    Opera is a great browser you may want to try out, Jerry. I see the full page ads attempting to pop up on my iPad Chrome installation, but they do not fully appear possibly because of ad blocking.

    I use the site on my iPhone mostly and in the last two days I have been getting a pop-up stating I've won some prize and I cannot get it off the screen until I click on it and it brings me to another site. Very annoying.

    This is not an SRP thing. Most likely adware or malware. I use Firefox with uBlockOrigin that is part of Firefox. No more malware nor adware. However you may have to check the temporary internet files and program files on your computer and delete certain files that enable malware and adware. A year ago I had a similar problem after installing the free AVG virus scanner.
