Thumbs down Extremely Annoying pop up ads on XDA forum using Chrome browser

Hello
I have recently starting to get a lot of pop up screens while browsing XDA forum in chrome saying I got 13 virus. (track.dovelane)
It is not happening on Dolphin and other browsers !
I like chrome and all my book marks are on it, so I don't want to change my browser.

I tried ads away and mother of all as blockers (flashable zip from XDA ) with no effects!
Even installing avg pro hasn't stopped those pop ups!

Any advice ?

I use AdAway and neve have any adds or pop-ups. You may want to try Malwarebites and see if you have a suspicious app on your tablet. Otherwise try the XDA app. If Chrome Browser is the only one it happens on then don't use it.

Cheers mate.I tried malwarebytes and there isn't any such application. Moreover,this is only happening in chrome even when I have blocked pop ups!

I think the latest update to chrome might be the reason! I will try to downgrade it and report back !

Update :

DOWNGRADING SOLVES THE ISSUE

I myself don't use Chrome. The stock browser is fast and I have Firefox for full flash capabilities using a non Hacked flash APK. Good to see you got it stopped for now.
