    Zwinky (on Fastclick)
    Just a heads-up that I saw an ad on FastClick for "Zwinky" a dress-up game (gawd how I hate it when the bastards target children) and it's badware.

    Read it and please, if you're using FastClick don't allow these ads to run.

    I stopped using Fastclick quite a while ago. I got tired of all the flashy ads and those really annoying audio ads. My site members were also very happy to see them go. Sometimes they'll even reminisce in the forum about the days when we had those horrible flashy ads.

    Ditto. I replaced all my Fastclick stuff with Adsense and haven't looked back...

    You might want to run an anti-spyware program to be sure you're rid of it.
    Usually these parasites don't simply "delete." They only pretend they're gone...
