Popup ads?

Why is it that every once in a while when I open up mmoui I get a popup ad that forces open an internet browser? :-/. I am about to uninstall this because it makes me think I have a virus. I installed this program on a second pc, only installation I've ever got a pop-up off of.

Are you sure its from MMOUI, I used to have a virus that when I was browsing the net it would pop up these ads every like 3 pages even if I was on a non-advertisement site.

As far as I'm aware, we only have one popunder ad running (for PartyPoker.net), and it is just that, a popunder, not a popup. Looking into whether we have another one running that I am not currently aware of. And, are you talking about the website, or Minion?

You shouldn't be getting any ads. Login to minion with your premium account...

Tools >> Options >> MMOUI - WoW


What was the popunder for and where are you located in the world? I'll have our ad team investigate it.

My browser was closed, so it opened up to partypoker. Then when I was on party poker I got a popup saying "You've won! Press okay to claim your prize!"

So this was when you were using Minion? Just confirming. Also, as Dolby asked, where are you located, please? (Country)
