Since yesterday, I'm having some popup ads only on WoT forums, if I use Chrome. I have Adblock Plus added, Phishing and Malware protection enabled, and after 3 full scans with 3 different AV, couldn't find anything. These popups are not presented if Firefox or IE is used, but I would rather not use them. The only website I'm getting these "Shopping Deals" popup is on the official WoT forum, and every time a new page is loaded.

Anyone has some ideas or maybe some suggestions of some AV's ran again?

Ok, so it's called : "Shopping Deals" by Offers4U and not even on any list of mine. The interesting thing that is only on the WoT official forums (this site) and only on Chrome...

 

Edited: 

Problem solved by removing the 2 latest software that were installed, deleting their folders, ran AdwCleaner and some malwarebytes... so it's either the Splashtop app or Aslain's Modpack got something in it. Seeing that it only affected the WoT Forums...
