Sounds like you have some adware on your computer. Perhaps run Spybot or Adaware. Then take note of what program it detects. That would probably mean that they are advertising through unethical means.
I had a user on my site say links were going to mypoints, and it turned out they had something called mysearch, a browser hijacker.

Look up BHO. Search ABW for that.
Per flamingo, looks like you might have a problem.Ma, where the beer? :escape:

I also use adware & spybot -- spybot seems to catch most but I prefer running both. Also, I recently downloaded the free version of spydoctor that comes w/the google desktop -- it also seems pretty good.
best of luck exterminating the nasty spyware/adware bugs!

Not necessarily. Could be they're doing PPC and Google, Yahoo or MSN are using some unethical partners.

I use a combination of Trend Micro HijackThis and Windows Defender. HijackThis is rather technical so make sure you don't over due it as it edits the registry. I have been doing this for many years but have screwed up my system before. the good things is you can see the BHO's.
