If I see any, I'll let you know. I havn't come across any yet, thank god, but if I do, I will tell you.

Hmm, to many third party as supports doesn't sound very trustful, but ok. You know a hell of a lot more about this than I do.

Damn.
The bastards are on NG now.
I have TONS (Trust me) of experience with Trojans and Spyware.
I'll keep a look out Tom.

Oh for you NG users out there who need help getting spyware of your computer, try Adaware(By Lavasoft) and spybot(Just the Personal Edition for Adaware, It's free).

I just love how with this deal, if you were to try and use up all the minutes, it'd actually take 45/50 days..

My firewall said 'ad.trafficmp.com' had a malicious file.
But then again, it says that about a few of them.

Get McAfee VirusScan Enterprise v7.1.0 and Avant Browser. That's the kind of protection against viruses and popups I have.

I need anyone who has spotted trojan ads to respond to this thread with the specific URL where they saw it. If it was the Portal VIEW page, what age range was the submission rated for? There are different ads based on different ratings. Please respond, and we'll deal with these ads!

I dont realy know if this is a virus, but i have a realy good popup blocker and it blockes almost everything, but it still get this add labbled AMEX, check it out, it could be a virus or somthing

I've only been here a few days, but hopefully with the production costs you may rake in from the console version of Alien Hominid (yeah i think it looks good.) It may really help the webservers and everything. Maybe no more Ads for a while even hopefully. But like that stickers cartoon explained, "the money will go towards the stickers we have produced, and the stickers that we will produce.)

I keep getting hit by these AOL ads. They try to get something by my pop up blocker and virus software and it freezes up internet explorer and causes my speakers to make weird hisses.

It just happened again when I went to view this movie http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/180007

It's amazing that these adds only annoy me on FIreFox.

Thanks for giving a care, Tom.
