My ISP is Virgin Media and I use their homepage for viewing the news. Had no problems until a few days ago....was reading the news and a Elastoplast pop-up appeared partly obscuring what I was reading. It would not go so I right clicked on it and there was a mention of Adobe. The same problem occurred the following day and so on, so I emailed Virgin.
The following day I did a search on my PC for Adobe and found Adobe Flash Player installed....I uninstalled the program and the Elastoplast pop-up had gone !!
Today I received a reply from Virgin stating there were no pop-ups on their Homepage, and I probably had a Spyware problem. This evening I was viewing the weather forecast on their homepage and Internet Explorer said "This Website wants to install the following add-on: "Adobe Flash Player Installer etc etc!
