Popups That Should Not Be ( 01:04:28 TueApr 23 2002 )

Board Plan: E 5.5

Several time today when I have gone to check on my board, I have gotten some popups, which I should not be seeing because of the plan we are on.

It hasn't done it every time, but any is too many.

Can you check and see if something has inadvertently been messed up?

Have you recently installed any software you downloaded online? Sometimes those 'freeware' programs have a agreement with advertisers about giving you advertising when your online-some even going as far as covering over real banners on a website-I just checked it out and as you have no banner and I got no pop up I can only think it must be something along those lines-BbBoy will double check of course-but for now can you go here:

Talking Best Board

and at the bottom will be a 'script' you'll see that should tell you if your browser is infected with something webmasters are referring to as
Scumware. IF you are infected with it there will be steps to remove it-alot of times this is where these pop ups come from...

Are any of your other members getting them too? And also if you can get the URL of the pop up we can ID it as a Bb advertiser or not...Source code would be even nicer but might not be needed if indeed it is a shifty software bundling issue where they slipped in the user agreement that they have the right to supply you with 'targeted advertising' gator is one of these companies as is Kazaa. Check out URL=]Scumware[/URL] for more indepth information.

Sorry it's happening Arden Ranger. :sad:

Yup, you're a variable board, there is no way popups can sneak in from our side on variable boards - the ad code for each plan is completely seperate. :smile:

I haven't downloaded anything new and I have Ad-Aware on my system anyway that I run at startup that cleans out those sneaky programs like Gator and BonziBUDDY.

It hasn't been happening today, so maybe it was just a temporary hiccup.

Thanks for your assistance.
