pca & "Avenue A Inc"

  radi8or 07:49 28 Mar 2004

Hi all,

Occasionally after logging on here while waiting for it to load I get a pop-up, "Spybot S&D reports you want to download "Avenue A Inc" this is a known threat"

Have AVGed, Ad-awared & Spybotted, came up clean, is anyone else getting this or know why.

Thanks in advance

Regards Bob

I used to have this if you open spybot and goto the imunise bit and select block all pages silently it will still do its job and not give you the popup.

Have a look at click here and you can block them from their site.
