Just did a full scan and nothing showed up.  Maybe I got the ad before she blocked it.  I'll keep my eyes open and if it appears again I'll speak up.

I have a strange quirk happening this morning and not sure how to get around it.  There is an ad for the Rich Dad program and it keeps appearing above messages but the problem is that when I click on the My Craftster link, the pop down window goes BEHIND the ad and I can't get to anything but my profile.  I couldn't get to my bookmarks until I had clicked on my profile link enough times that the Rich Dad ad went away and another appeared, then the pop down menu would go in front of it and I could get to bookmarks.  It's causing quite the hassle because I can't keep going back to my bookmarks without having first to go to my profile over and over to get rid of this one ad.  Any ideas why the Rich Dad would be doing this?

i had a thing happening like this but i think it was an ad for a (horror?) movie.  i forgot to pay attention to what ad it was.  sorry.  i think it might have been the same one i saw in a different format that was sepia colors and had a face with writing on the face/body.

I'm getting a lot  of really bad phishing spam ads. "THIS IS NOT A JOKE you are the Nth visitor, click here to claim your prize."

Hrmm... I haven't seen those.  Can you do a scan of your system to make sure it's not an adware/malware program?  Spybot and Ad-aware are free programs that I personally like.

I didn't think spyware worked on macs. I don't think we have any anti-spyware at school, I'll bug our tech guy.

i'm getting the same ad on my mac and it TALKS it's so obnoxious! I'm sure it's not a spyware problem, my school has very strenuous rules about protecting your computer and I've never had a problem with it before.
