O.P. Adware issues
I'd like to report a problem that seems to have cropped up on the Something Awful forum (here) and I've been experiencing it myself.

Browser popups popping up and it seems to be associated with Messenger Plus.

I've been a regular user of Messenger Plus for years, and for now, I'm uninstalling it until a) the problem can be traced and b) the problem can be dealt with.

I thought I would report it - and if you don't think it belongs in this section, please feel free to move it elsewhere.

Thank you.

Note: I don't know if it's coming from Messenger Plus Live or Messenger Plus for Skype.

Hello,

I can confirm.
Since some days, users report popups in Malwares removal forums.
At the end, the PC is not infected and the popups come from Yuna Messenger Plus!

Here a screenshots, we can the processus plusskyperservice.exe that open an ads from rotator.wigetmedia.com (redirecting to vube.com) :

I made a post in my website :

So What ? Yuna Messenger Plus! is an Adware.
