Also, people have been complaining about a virus.
I don't know what to think, as I haven't gotten anything, but just to be on the safe side, you should check it out.

Well, it doesn't look like they're rushing to get rid of them. I've just been hit with another barrage of them.

No its a javascript add, but the thing is you cant disable that in your browser coz then ng doesnt work.

My computer is so screwed up it has an error report of the same file pop up all the time and won't go away until you click "don't send" 10-12 times and there's tons of pop-ups and it keeps changing my home page to "about:blank" so I highly appreciate it when you get rid of even one pop-up ad. All hail Tom Fulp!

We don't want ads like this on NG either - the ad company has been notified and it will be gone by the end of today.

Bah, that has been pissing the hell put of me. Thanks for doing something about it so quickly. I was wondering if it was EVER going to get fixed. Thanks.

tom, i appreciat the thought, but there are still sticky popups, meaning that youll x out of it, but it stays and you cant play the movie. i think its a travel ad thats sticking, thanks for you time

Wouldn't that = popup?

Eh, I have webwasher, and I'm assuming it was one of the 30,000 or so popups/images it's filtered since I installed it a month or so ago.
