PCA site trying to download a file

In the last couple of days my browser (IE7) has warned that this site is trying to download a file to my PC. It may be associated with a particular advert (Fujitsu) but I have not even moused over the advert.

Any thoughts? Firefox is not for me so there is no need to offer that advice, but thanks anyway!

I've got IE7 and its not doing it to me anskyber, perhaps the file is something like Java which I already have and you don't? Or something similar.

Hi sunny,
Ive also ie7pro,its only when the fujitsu ad is on the page,it trys to install add on,i may have to add something? or its just an attempt to get round ie7pro !

I've got IE7Pro as well and its not been doing it with me at all. I can only assume that whatever the download is I already have it.
I have to say though that I have not seen this Fujitsu advert at all. Perhaps I've somehow blocked it?

just popped up again and it was a jscript script file named CREATIVE BEACON

Yes, having looked around it does seem to be associated with the Fujitsu ad.

I'm not concerned (I think!) about any dangers here it's more as Sparkly has said, it's an irritation.
