So it happens and you have Vista? hmm  I'll tell hubby as he was thinking my computer didn't have a problem b/c it had Vista.  I think a lot of the problems are b/c of the ads here.

Hi guys! 

So sorry for the inconvenience.  It seems to have gotten into one of our ad networks this last week.  We're working diligently to get it removed.  I think we actually had a breakthrough on Friday, so hopefully it won't be too long!

Again, so sorry.  It's very unfortunate. Sad

I have contacted who is in charge of my swaps that I will NOT be coming back until it is fixed here so please get the word out that things are fixed so I know when to come back. I'm signing off now so my dh can FIX my computer AGAIN!!

have you seen the Mac ads where PC says that Windows 7 won't have the problems Windows Vista had, then they go back in time and each time a new version of Windows comes out, PC says it won't have the problems of the previous version?  we all know those are lies, every last one of them.  so we know that just because we have Vista, we are still not protected.  and like I said, this computer has ALWAYS had Vista and I've got scan pop-up many, many times.  I've just been able to stop it from downloading.

@JonathansWife - most times, you don't have a choice.  that's how my ex's computer almost got infected for a second time.  even if you click on "No" or "Cancel", it will act as though you did click "Yes" or "OK" and download itself.  you have to cut your computer off from the Internet, and shut any open windows.

It happened 3 times in a row yesterday.  Get onto craftster.  Window gets hijacked.  Can't back out.  Close window.  Get onto craftster again.  REPEAT TWICE   Growl and go do something else online waiting to try craftster later.

And, it just popped up on me again to me a couple of minutes ago. 

Don't know if this helps those who are researching the problem, but I have found that it is markedly growing in frequency of occurrence.  I wonder if there may be more than one hole that needs to be plugged.

Ah, yes.  That would be good.  Hopefully she'll notify one of them to inform her.
