I think you might have some nasty spyware.

Download the following two tools, install them and make sure they update. Then let them scan your PC for issues (seperately).

Ad-aware (http://www.download.com/3000-2144-10045910.html)
Spybot (http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-Destroy/3000-8022_4-10401314.html?tag=lst-0-1)

It's in the top right hand corner of the page with an arrow pointing down, seems like its built in to the page?

I'm running Ad-Aware now.

Yeah, it still shows up sometimes, but my spyware and security systems say my machine is clean. So its got to be something new.

That's what I use along with AOL Security Center and Webroot Windows washer. You can never be too safe.

Not a chance.

Our ads are non-intrusive. And we have to approve everything before it goes up.

What he's got is some kind of serious spyware.

Can we get a screenshot?? :tongue:

IMO anything with the letters AOL in it.... IS spyware.

If I could figure out a way to transfer my favorites to another internet service, I would switch. :lol:

Easiest way is to press the print screen button. It should be at the top right of your keyboard with the letters PrtScn. Open up MSpaint and press Ctrl+V or go to Edit-> Paste.

Save that file as a .jpg and then upload it on here or on an image hosting site like www.imageshack.us
