Social network popup
Is someone going to fix the problem? It's been taking over the DC page since yesterday. I've already read the Texasgirl thread on this, so I thought I would start a new one just to ask when it will be fixed. Thanks.

Okay, I clicked on the "about this ad" it shows a small window saying it's an advertisment and will only show once a day. If this shows up once a day, it's going to get VERY annoying. Is there anyway to contact these people and tell them ENOUGH!?

Do you have your pop up blockers on? Is it concidered a pop up??

I have a popup blocker, so I guess it's not a popup, it overlaps the DC page completely.

I have popup blockers also, but it obscured the entire dc page - I had to close completely to get rid of it. Luckily, it hasn't bothered me today.

amber, I think it must be a pop up because I am not getting it. I just posted in the other thread. I suggest Google pop up blocker and Microsoft too. I use both. You can also set the level that you want to block. If you set it to high you should be OK.

This seems to be a more individual thing. Not everyone is experiencing the problem. I wish I could be more helpful to you. Give the pop up blockers a go, see if that helps.

I would also recommend you run your spyware program. AdAware or Spybot, either will get rid of any nasty thing you might have encountered. I have also had wonderful success with Ewido Security Suite, thanks to southernlady for recommending it.

It is not a pop up. I have 3 pop up blockers, verizon, msn and google.
It doesn't come up as a pop up. It almost completely covers the DC page. It is like one page together. I also have Microsoft Anti-spyware and Spybot. Both have run, my virus scanner has run and it's all clean. It's not a pop up. For some reason many of us are getting it and some are not. My opion is that it isn't a world wide thing, only nation wide within the US.

I am not getting it either though. Maybe it is because I am using Firefox and not IE?

Alix 01-15-2006 01:00 PM

I'm on IE GB, so I don't think that is it. I'm not in the US though. Maybe that is the difference.
