Something weird is happening

When I came on to DC - immediately a page "social knowledge.com" popped up and wouldn't let me get on. Does anyone know anything about this? After I closed and came back, I was able to post.

No, I suppose I was suspicious. Perhaps a braver soul than I could do so. It was scary the way it just tried to take over my page.

It did it to me about 4 times. I finally logged off of msn and then logged back on. It has something to do with an advertisement for netzero.

That name sounds familiar. I am not 100%, but I think that might be another site Andy R is involved with.

It happened to me earlier ... had to break out the "Bot Swatter". Really ticked me off ...

Seems the problem was around 2:00-2:30pm CST

Happened to me too earlier. I though it might have been from the previous site I was at. I had to close IE then re open it.

I got it too this afternoon, but it clicked itself off. Maybe (for once!) the aol is actually doing it's job.

I use a pop up blocker as part of the google toolbar in IE so I have not gotten this yet.

Yup. Happened to me again.

Does everyone have a pop-up blocker. If so, make sure it is turned on. I turned mine on and it hasen't happened since.

Just happened to me while I was reading this thread. Had to reboot. Think I'm gonna log out and use IE instead of Mozilla.

I have recommended pop up blockers (Google and Microsofts) in the other two threads about this and I will also suggest that you run your spyware removal program. AdAware from grisoft or SpyBot are the best. Ewido Security Suite is also WONDERFUL and gets a ton of stuff. southernlady recommended it and it works really well.
