Pop ups each time I click, is this me or HF?

So I just tried to log in to horse forum and whenever I click on anything, like a box to put my user name in or even to get onto a board these pop ups open in other tabs, for stuff like competitions, betting etc all the dodgy kind of things you normally get on bad websites. This has never happened to me before at HF. Is it the computer I'm on or the Horse Forum?

Running virus scans just in case, but has anyone else had this issue?
