I am having a problem when loading a couple of sites with media.fastclick.net. I believe this to be an advertisement or spyware. The problem is that with a couple of websites the page tries to load and then stops when it tries to load media.fastclick.net. Searching on the net seems to indicate that this may be spyware. The sites are prevented from loading on both IE7 and Firefox 2. I use Spyware Blaster, Spy Sweeper and Spybot. Anyone any suggestions on a way around this?
Thanks

It's not spyware but an ad server.

You could edit your hosts file to read

127.0.0.1 media.fastclick.net

Search for a file called hosts (no extension)

Open with notepad

add the above line
