Why am I getting so many pop-ups on my e-bay?

I keep getting a lot of pop-ups on my e-bay.  They are very dis-tracting.  How can I stop them?

1.  Use a browser with a popup blocker.

even better ...

2.  Run FULL malware scans on your computer!  It is probably infected.

Are you talking about pop-ups or advertisements?

 

The window that appears, such as the Browse feature for uploading images or the Enlarge feature on listings, those are pop-ups.

 

You can't stop eBay from advertising on their own web site, but if you receive intrusions from third parties, you can stop that practice.

 

Install and run Malwarebytes:

And, there are several web browsers that won't allow advertising. Firefox with the Ad Block Plus add-on works well.
