    Four small banners have recently appeared at the bottom of one of my web pages.

    When I click them I get http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/url... in
    my browser.

    I am then taken to these web pages depending on the banner I click:
    www.wbzskate.com
    www.northfacejacket.com
    www.ebay.com
    www.411vm.com

    I have not signed up for any banner/ad programs nor for Googleads - nothing.

    These banners are on my web page without my permission and I want them
    removed pronto.

    Anyone have experience on how to eliminate these intrusive irritants.
    I have done a site search but not found a way to get rid of them.
    Thanks

    If it is not yours, why don't you complain to google about this?

    They defintely sound like Adsense ads. (Which, under normal circumstances is not a bad thing.) If you didn't add them to your page then somehow, someone is hijacking your browser. This is the first I've heard about scumware involving the Adsense program. (Of which I am a big fan.)

    Look at your html and see if you have about 14 lines of java script code that starts something like this:

    script type="text/javascript"><!--
    google_ad_client = "pub-.........

    If you have it in your source code, then someone in your organization signed you up and put the code in. Otherwise, if it is just appearing on browsers, then there is a whole new scumware problem developing. (Just what we need.)

    Keep us posted.

    What browser are you using?

    I'm guessing IE?

    Try looking at your site in Netscape. If the ads disappear, got to Doxdesk.com and run a check for parasites.

    Then start using Netscape instead, and put a link to the Netscape download on your site so that other people can enjoy a parasite-free web experience.

I've read some people with those being befuddled by the sudden appearance of "extra" ads, but it turns out that the hose (edit: and host too) just signed up and modified their page frames.

    Sounds like you do have a parasite in your pc.
