This happened to me not to long ago. Not on Craftster, but another website. I normally use Firefox but used IE this particular time. I accidentally clicked a car ad and was bombarded with 63 pop ups (yes, I counted as I tried to close them). Had to restart to get rid of the problem. This was back when my IE was really buggy though, so I did virus and malware scans and got rid of some problems. I haven't had it happen since, but I don't really use IE that often.

I've had this happen a lot more in the last 2 days. As soon as I see it I hit control alt delete and hit end and it takes a few minutes but closes them all down.

We haven't been able to resolve this issue.  For best performance, make sure you let windows fully load before closing them.  This seems to cause the issue more often than not.

There is a survey that pops up sometimes, but that's all I get (unless it's this crazy error issue).

I don't know what it is, I just know it's happening.  it's just so weird that it started doing it today.  and it hasn't happened since.
