Most likely your system has been infected by malware. If you are using a Windows computer, go to the Control Panel, load the "Programs and Features" program and look for recently installed programs, especially programs you don't recognize. If you find something recently installed you don't recognize, click to remove the program.

    Hi Charles, I wish your suggestion would fix this program. Interestingly I have to very different computers and the pop up started today on both of the computers. Is it possible that LinkedIn caused both?

      @Cheryl - The source of the malware is not the LinkedIn website, but perhaps you clicked on a message that looked like it came from LinkedIn. The phishing messages are getting to be very difficult to detect.

      I did exactly what Charles Caro said to do and I eliminated a strange program. I think it hd web or surf or something in its name and I have not experienced the issue since. Please try that,

        I am very annoyed with the pop up screens -- this is starting to look more like another face book every day.

        Someone needs to start a real business network site that stays professional and isn't trying to attract every warm body.

        I would pay more to have it but, paying for this is just frustrating

          @David - LinkedIn doesn't use popup ads on the LinkedIn website, which means your computer has been infected by malware.

          You can follow the information I included with my original answer or you can probably take care of the malware using a quicker method I have found. All you need to do is "reset" your browser.

          If you are using Firefox, go to the help menu and select "Troubleshooting Information". At the "Troubleshooting Information" webpage you will see an option labeled "Reset Firefox".

          Before you click to reset your browser be sure to backup and export your bookmarks and make note of any passwords you have saved.

          Other modern browsers have a similar feature.
