I've never seen any Netflix ads or pop-ups. Sounds like you were infected with adware...

Nope. If I was, Avast, SuperAntiSpyware, MBAM, or Spybot S&D would have picked up on it. I haven't gotten one their *&^%$#@! ads since I got AdBlockPlus.

I as well have never seen or been bothered by an ad on Netflix, and I don't use any AdBlock. I've been using Netflix for years now, on PC, mobile, Roku, Apple TV, etc. It really sounds like something is not how it should be for you.

You probably don't get the ads because you are using it.

Because I am using what? AdBlock? I don't use AdBlock, or any ad-blocking service/application. I am sorry, but you are just mistaken. Netflix does not use ads.

Are you calling me a liar? Maybe you don't get the ads but for years, they would pester me with pop-ups and, later, sneak in pop-unders until I got Ad Block Plus
