Cloudflare is getting buttfucked right now so it will effect us to some degree. Weather the storm and should settle down shortly.

While i'm here, only here does this happen. I click a thread and it opens a new tab with some bullshit like "your computer speed sucks" or something of the sort. Doesn't do it every time, maybe once every 5-10min, but it's annoying as fuuuuuhk. It's been happening for a couple months now. Maybe my popup blocker isn't working, but it really only happens when I'm on TCG.

Shouldnt be b/c of the site. You use firefox? I bet you got some faggy 3rd part toolbar or extension installed without you knowing. Go take a look and anything that doesnt make sense, remove it. Bet the problem will go away.

Also, run a malwarebytes scan.

I have no clue what you are talking about. And it scares me that you think an IT class will teach you anything about fixing this.

The overuse of pronouns is not helping the diagnosis. What is scanning your computer?

It would be a full degree, not just a class :rofl: Right now PC performer popped up and RagClean pro popped up. All I did was try to DL the malwarebytes.

If it means anything, they found 797 registry errors found. Whatever the hell that means.

If it means anything, there are now ads in between posts. That I've never seen before, especially when I was logged in. They're pc performer ads.

should probably try this
Remove PC Performer, removal instructions
and run all of your scans in safe mode along with antivirus scans.
So thank you very much for your help. Not joking. After reading up a bit (probably nothing new to you guys) I did a system reset and used your link to delete those broke ass things on the computer. I honestly have no idea how those ended up on my computer, I can only blame my ex for that. Now I can actually click threads/links and I don't get pop-ups asking me how my computer is performing. It's back to being a slow laptop again!
