I click on a forum thread with a hubzu ad. A new tab or window opens to hubzu. I close the tab or window. Within a second or two, a new one opens. I close that, and the cycle repeats. Sometimes I only have to close 2-3 hubzu popups to see the actual RR content, sometimes more like 10-15. I understand this site needs ads to keep running, but this is ridiculous. Besides being incredibly annoying, an ad spawning multiple tabs or windows without the user clicking on anything is borderline malware.

Can someone look into this?
Why? this is only occurring on your computer and is not an RR.com problem.

Nope...time to do a malware scan on your computer and make a hosts file like Elroy Jetson has suggested.
