    The last few days this popup ad keeps coming up. It takes over my cowboyszone session and I am forced to close the tab. Anyone else seeing this?

    That looks like it's adware injecting an ad. Are you seeing them elsewhere, or just on CZ?

    @Reality needs to be aware although this may prove to be more unharmful than not.

    I believe idgit is suggesting it may be adware software installed on the device, not advertising on CZ, causing the problem. I have scanned the advertising on CZ, but haven't seen anything like that ad so far from the CZ ads.

    Yeah, that sounds like adware. Mind your downloads. :)

    It's cloudfront.net there in the screengrab, right? If that's what you're seeing regularly, you can google how to remove it and get rid of it fairly easily.

    Don't know the status of your issue with that popup, but it is usually an ad bug found on cell phones/tablets from downloading third party apps not found in Google Play if you use android devices. Any number of online malware scanners can detect and direct you on how to remove this. If you jailbreak Apple devices, you run the same risk if not worse. The Komando site has good info about this, and, I'm sure, others as well.
