The browse to save ad section has recently been displaying obscene content. If possible, please look into the matter. It's quite a headache for us minors, and out of place in a programming forum.


I can believe, but why should I?

What do you mean obscene content? Most of our ads are tier one advertisers. Can you send me a screenshot (via PM) and I'll try to hunt it down?

The problem was being caused due to an adware named BrowseToSave, which often poses under the names Yontoo or Zoomex, or as in my case, Breowwse2ssave(Not a typo). It maybe installed as a third party app during some other installation, and may also be installed as an add on without your knowledge. The following links from Roger solved the problem:

That's ugly, I have no doubt the matter will be addressed with haste.

 

Advertisers seems to annoy us with malware, trackers, whatever ... and yet there's no law against that practices... something should be done.
