    Could you tell us what kind of pop up it is? I really do not know what you're talking about, maybe you should make a screenshot of it.

    I got one at the bottom of the screen saying something like 'you've won an iphone 4s'

    However it's gone now I've logged in

    @bradzx is it still there?

    I doubt it is malware, more like adware.

    He is right. There is a tiny red box in the bottom right corner of the site, that says "Close". If you click it while you're on the portal page, it vanishes, but it didn't vanish if you click it on the forum pages. It reappears every time you load a gbatemp page. Yes, it is annoying.

    This is potentially a problem. Would someone please take a screenshot of the ad, and copy/paste the link location that it points toward?

    Actually I'm not kidding and I don't know what it looks like. Otherwise I wouldn't ask for the screenshot and link location.
    In short: I'm not getting this popup ad.

    Wait a minute, ads haven't even been added back to GBAtemp yet!
    It seems to me that the problem is on your end and not ours.
    Recommend you run malwarebytes and see if it removes the problem.

    So when I used Firefox, I didn't get either the iPhone add nor the red 'close' box (maybe because of Ad-Block plus?)


    But when I opened up GBAtemp.net in Chrome, I got these:

    [sharedmedia=gallery:images:558]
    [sharedmedia=gallery:images:556]

    Whether I was signed in or not didn't make a difference.

    ....I'm having trouble understanding you.
    I am not running any sort of ad blocking program or plug-in. (Firefox 7.0.1)

    Same here in IE and FF. No malware. Check your HTML and search for ""
