spybot search and destroy reports that on many (all?) pcadvisor.co.uk pages "Avenue A,inc" is attempting to install. Whrn I click "yes" to block access, the page remains blank and has to be refreshed before it will display. Sometimes tis won't work and I can't get onto the page.
Does PC Advisor condone this behaviour on its site?

Install SpywareBlaster, this will stop it.

What exactly will spywareblaster stop? Spybot S&D stops the adware from entering my system (I think) but where are these access attempts originating? Is it from PC Advisor site?
