Question about the " pop ups"

Did my subscription run out ~ I thought that if you paid for belonging to the site, you did not have to see all the ADS etc.
On the left side of my screen I see big Pop Up videos Ad and constantly have to click it off.

I also see blue underlines that have pop ups?
How can I check to see when I need to pay again?

Thanks!

1. You have a star, so I think you're good. Also, check your Account:

Link:

Should show your membership status.

Maybe you need to use an ad-blocking add on, I use Firefox with some ad-blocking thing.

2. It sounds like you got some adware.

DU never had those blue link ads. You may have inadvertently installed some adware.

Your antivirus program might catch it, or you can try downloading a program like Malwarebytes, which we use at work.
