I put this on the blog but a few readers have not visited the blog so I have cut and pasted below:

Hi Guys, a few readers have emailed me to say that when they are visiting the site, they are seeing a popup for google chrome. We have looked into this and discovered the following. The hack/popup is not on our website. Instead, google has hacked Internet Explorer in an aggressive marketing move (like any of us would want to follow a damned popup).

So, if you are seeing popups, it is occurring in your browser, not on the TBR site. One way around this is to download firefox as your browser. If you wish to stay with Internet Explorer, hopefully this stupidity will pass in time. Google Chrome is an excellent platform but as I have said, its not like anyone will want to use this as a browser after seeing it as a popup.

Our IT team have informed me that the popup does not lead to a malicious site or software- if any of you happen to accidentally click the popup link.

My thanks to the IT team at Zeald for their research skills.
