    Hi, I have just opened IPad forum and have been surprised that I continually get a POP UP for Regaine for men hair loss.
    It's so annoying. Has any one else had this, When it pops up I have not opened it just in case it corrupts my IPad 3, I just close it by pressing the X

    Welcome to the wild wild world of advertising! :) I'm going to assume you are using Safari (?). You can make it so that Safari stops a lot (all?) of these pop-ups. To do, go to the Safari tab in your Settings app. Scroll down the right side until you see the line "Block Pop-ups." Make sure the button is ON and that's it.

    Hopefully, that'll take care of pop-ups...

    Hi Marilyn,
    Thanks for the info, however the pop up blocker was/is on. Strangely I have never had a pop up until I went onto the forum, not sure if that's a coincidence.
    Regard Peter

    Instead of opening this forum on safari just download the app. No pop ups. Unless of course you're referring to opening on a computer and not your iPad?


    Here's the link. Hope that helps.

    If you don't want to click the link then just do a search in the App Store for Discussion Forum for iPad.

    The icon looks like this. image-348052118.jpg
