    I just realised somthing strange today.
    I have been receivng some pop ups from When U.
    Anytime I click through an affiliate on our site or though an email especially (merchant newsletters with links to put up), a small window pops up.

    An example
    I clicked a link in the newsletter we received from Gateway about news link we had to put, so I could see the offer for my self.
    There pops up this small window which had this

    A WhenU.com offer - click ? for info

    SO I clicked on the link that was in their window and it took me to the page, I was supposed to have gone with our affiliate link.

    Compare the 2 links
    Their link
    http://service.bfast.com/bfast/click?bfmid=37919389&siteid=38990066&bfpage=weelk

    and our link
    http://service.bfast.com/bfast/click?bfmid=37919389&siteid=38882234&bfpage=consumer_profile_4

    They had replaced our link with theirs and I am so shocked.

    First of all I do not remember downloading any script from When U so how some this is happening to me.
    I can just imagine how many sales they have robbed other affiliates

    Can anyone please tell me how I can get rid of the pop up scripts from Whenu on my computer?

    Hi Girlie,

    Can you do me a favor? Click on our links on your site, and let me know if there are any pop-ups.

    We stopped working with WhenU a few months back, so there shouldn't be any.

    I just want to make sure though.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    PS. I just double checked, and our tech guys are setting up a separate computer this week, for us to do this type of testing on our own.

    I haven't been doing this enough to figure out what is going on, and I don't know anything about WhenU.com.

    Hummmmmmmmmmmm. Not sure how to get rid of it either.

    If you don't have anything new in add/remove programs, download lavasoft's ad-aware and try that.

    Thanks a bunch everyone! I just downloaded AdAWare and ran it.(twice)

    I checked my BareNecessities link and the pop up is gone! I also checked my host log on page and another annoying popup is also gone. Plus I think my computer is running faster now.

    AdAWare found 60 components and I deleted them all.

    Really Appreciate the advice.

    You sure caught Whenu/Shopnow red handed in their commission thievery plot. Notice also how they deceive shoppers and partner with other dubeous merchants like eBates.com. I feel sorry for any ABW member who operates a "incent" site, since your bigger brothers are much better thieves. Put MLM together with incent deals and you have some real chance to dupe the get rich quick crowd. Most incent sites just fail to pay off their duped herd of "get paid to..whatever.." (Like Nitroclicks.com) and open up under a new name when they get threats from unpaid dreamers. The big boys just hype up the savings angle ..get automated treatment by the affiliate networks and proceed to pilfer commisisons from our own traffic. When are we going to delve deeper into this eBates.com duperaffiliate relationships with parasites and the networks?

    Ebates.com, Amazon.com and TopMoxie have a very "close" relationship. So close in fact that I and others have eliminated our affiliate links to Amazon.com.

    Currently, there is a firestorm at the Amazon Affiliate discussion board concerning this.

    Basically, the affiliates are being farmed with the blessings of Amazon.com.

    Definitely a Amazon/Bezo's greed alliance designed to suck money from Amazon affiliates. Topmoxie is a real parasite enabler and would never stop operating as thiefware. Ebates.com just has all the Linkshare and CJ autoload "incent" sweetners in place to round out this cherry pickin roundup. Where ever there is mass traffic huddled around a desperate for revenue site..there will be some parasites in the woodpile. Be nice to see Amazon clean up it's act and nix this deal.
