    Hey gang:

    We have a client running a big campaign. When the ads appear, users with SpyBot are getting this message:

    "Spybot has blocked a download of AvenueA, Inc. to your computer"

    Can anybody tell me anything about Avenue A and their tactics?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Is that damn Value Click, they let in a new parasite.

    Block that damn thing. When you get about 10 pop ups to block it you will get the download bundle option next.

    It's not through ValuClick; this is a sale client that bought directly through our sales people.

    Karl,

    They are an advertising network. If you pm where I can find the ads in question, I'll take a look for you and also see exactly what spybot is doing. It could just be that spybot is targeting and blocking their cookies when the spybot user has the immunization function turned on.
