Hi, I hope i can get some help as i am now very frustrated.
A while ago, i signed up with to host my own forum. A little while after i noticed that when i was browsing the net..and in some cases not! windows were appearing advertising ""...and ""...also others for i-pods.etc. i had zonealarm at the time and decided to purchase mcafee security suite to scan for malware etc..and for the extra protection on-line.
mcafee found nothing, so i also installed spybot search and destroy....which also found nothing. in a last ditch attempt i also installed ad--aware 2007 which said it found 8 probs so i quarentined them.It's still happening, i notice that these sights are affiliated with who i contacted but other than advising spybot they dont want to know!!!....Has anyone else had a similar problem?.....PLEASE HELP!!!!...Many thanks guys.
I use Firefox by the way :O)

Thx Devil fish i have activated pop up blockers on both firefox and internet exp..i have maximum security set on mcafee and i have added the sites to the block list in internet exp options..but nothing works...
these adds open in an entirely new window?...some advising that they are installing software to check for malware etc which i stop at once!..
i will try hijack this and see if that works,..
thx for the advice :O)
