Recently, on random websites, i've been getting this type of advertisement bar at the top of the page, with a button to skip it. It's just happening on random sites, that didn't have it there before.
Couldn't find suitable posting place.

Some websites are designed to do this as an alternative to traditional banner advertising or pop-ups.

If it's happening on most pages you visit it could quite possibly be malware.

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty (and you may not be) then post a hijackthis log in THE MALWARE FORUM

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
