I had this start yesterday after updating to the latest windows browser, I’ve since installed an add blocker and it has fixed the issue, although I don’t think pro boards likes me using it as I get a message at the bottom of my screen asking ‘can we talk’ as it’s obviously losing them add revenue.
I’ll just hasten to add to anyone, don’t click the links to update flash player as I’m certain it will only take you to a dubious looking site to install malware or worse on your computer.
Pro boards need to do something about this, it was doing something similar on my iPhone too quite recently which I also resolved the problem by installing an add blocker, it looks like the adverts on this site are easily compromised by unscrupulous folk.
I have been getting this all the time since the last update last week I believe, although it seems only to be an issue on Microsoft Edge browser. If I use Google Chrome I don't get bothered with it, but crikey it's bloody annoying, jumps in every time I clear it.
I got this message for a while too. This was spam. Microsoft Edge doesn't use Flash Player so there is no need whatsoever for you to install a new version of it. Will probably come with some malware attached - DON'T CLICK THE LINK!!!
