    I'm experiencing huge amounts of pop ups on bhw. Nothing popped up when I'm at other sites.

    Not sure if it's only happening to me.

    Ads like "You got virus!" appears whenever the bhw page is fully loaded and I click into threads. It only happens after I click.

    You have either adware or a malicious browser extension. Go through your extensions and install Malwarebytes.

    Perhaps better if you reset windows. Just to make sure you know.

    All clear here.

    You got malware, and it may capture your BHW password.

    Format your machine, you can no longer trust it.

    No need to dump the hardware.

    Set up 2-factor auth for BHW and sites you care for. Those malware steal your pwd's first thing. Some wanker across the globe has your passwords by now.

    Check your extensions and also add/remove feature in control panel.
    Delete all the unwanted stuff, And yes install malware bytes.
