I don't use IE either, mine is verizon/msn. I don't care for the IE format.

If it were not for how many people it was affecting then I would say it sounds very much like spyware, but since it is happening to so many different people at the same time then I would think this is unlikely.

whatever it is, it's really annoying and hopefully, Andy will see this and let us know what is going on.

I agree. Just to be sure, I did run adware and spybot and my system is fine. I have a pop up blocker too. I havent had this problem at other sites, it's specific to DC. It began yesterday, it happened a few times, and so far today it happened once.

Perplexing!

Very odd! I wish I could help out, but I don't know what else to suggest. Sure hope this goes away soon. Is there some way you can "X" out of it so it is gone quickly when it shows up?

There isn't anywhere to x out of. It's not in a window, it's a page just like this one, sitting on top of this one. There isn't the minimize, maximize and close buttons except for DC's own window. If you close, it closes DC. It's hard to explain. If it comes up again, I will try to copy it and show you.

Yep, when I hit the "back" button it went away. It's more annoying than anything. It doesnt seem to be specific to browsers either since many mentioned they use IE, mozilla, firefox, verizon. It does seem only to be those of us in the US ....so far I've noticed people from Maine, Texas, Florida, Indiana, CT, Calif, Kansas, and Washington mention this problem, and all of us around the same time yesterday and again today. Weird!
