Pop-ups on this site

Windows XP and IE7

I am now getting the pop-up blocked banner on this site. Not every time, seems to be random. Have run AdAware and Skybot. AVG (free) is up to date and run daily. Is this happening to anyone else and should I be concerned?

I noticed it was doing it to me as well in the past couple of days and I was wondering whether I've altered anything.

Totally-braindead. Thanks for your reply. I'm pretty sure I haven't altered anything (at least not intentionally).

I do not get any banner, just a sound , but I just ignore it

Last thing we need, pop-ups. I get the warning, too.

Perhaps if enough people moan about it some kind person at PCA will sort it?

That is presumming it is the website causing this. I think it is as I don't recall altering anything.

not getting any banners or sounds, unless you mean those annoying boxes that appear if you lapse and move your mouse pointer over green fonts.

I'm wondering if it only happens when I am not logged in? I logged in so that I could post this thread and haven't had a pop-up warning since...

They're a nuisance. For instance on this page if my pointer moves over Windows XP I get Ask wanting to tell me about XP!On pop-up I'm offered a MSN pop up bar. I dare say now I've written this, they'll appear in green to annoy other people.I'm on Firefox, but just checked, its same in I.E.I wouldnt buy anything from these ads, even if it was the best bargain going!
