Hi,

Lately I've been receiving pop-up windows while navigating on ProZ. One of them is "Buy legal Marijuana Alternatives On the Web Here!".
I have to say that this doesn't happen when navigating outside ProZ.
Is this happening to you too?

Hi Dan Aug 30, 2003

I haven't noticed it with ProZ, but when my msn is ON, I have all kind of pop up windows.

When I leave for sometime I close all the Internet windows and leave just msn marking "absent". When I come back I have plenty of pop up windows. You can do a test.

ProZ.com does not do pop-up advertising Aug 30, 2003

Dan,

Those pop-ups are not coming from ProZ.com. You are likely infected with one or more "adware" or "spyware" programs that shows you pop-up ads while you browse the web. One adware removal tool I've used with success is Ad-aware; a free download is available here:

Hope this helps.
