There have been several complaints recently regarding Pop Up Adverts on this site, but this one is really annoying me.
I am not sure what triggers it, but it opens a new page for Ad:Tech which seems to be a total waste of time. I have scanned my computer thoroughly and I have no nasties.
Is anyone else getting this or is it rawprawn orientated?

rawprawn orientated


What browser are you using?

No problems with Firefox with the No Script add on.

IE8, I will work with Firefox for a while and see what happens
