Hi
Just after logging into this site and at odd times during my visit it I get a dialogue box infering that I want to download a file. The file name varies each time but is of the form
...y;s2=450&25;ord fromad.uk.doubleclick
Has anybody any idea what it is?

Go to cnet.com and get ad-aware and run it you may find that the doubleclick is spy ware and ad-aware will remove it from your pc and all the other shi...oooops spy ware in there aswel,Basicly its a cookie that activates it's self when you brows the web do not be fooled by any popups you get unfortunatly the net is full of people trying to sell you things you have or just don't want.
