    I did a quick search of this board using the term pop-ups and did not quickly find anything that helped me explain what is going on. (remember I am a parasite newbie) Anyway..I started a new weight loss site that is not even indexed in G yet. I also have the google tool bar that is supposed to block pop-ups...lo and behold I go to do some checking on my site and get a pop up for the pill store. I x'd it out thinking it must have popped up from some other site I had been too....The more I thought about it the more I thought that it came from my site..so I tried to duplicate it with no results, until logging on about 2 hours later..there it was! What the?! I have a copy of the url if that will prove anyone guilty. My question is..does this mean my machine has a parasite or that my site has been hijacked? Also..I remember back getting a vitacost pop-up but have not been able to re-create that one so I can't say for sure.
    So..My machine or my site? What can I do?
    Thank you

    Download from www.lavasoftusa.com the program called Ad-Aware and remove everything it detects from your system. 99% of every computer in the world hooked to the internet has been infested with spyware/adware programs. The Ad Whores, commission thieves and direct marketing wanks are like locuses swarming online shoppers.

    I ran ad aware...I don't know what all was found but I did see a lot of iwon.com crap. This was my old home page but you can rest assured it is a goner now. I reset to yahoo..I hope that is safe. Thanks for the tip on ad aware.
