    Pop-under ad

    Anyone getting a pop-under ad when visiting this site? I get one the first time I visit every day.

    No, but I have "allow unrequested popup windows" turned off in my browser.

    No way. It's not caused by AlpineZone. I can assure you. I pride myself on limited advertising and the only available ad options are listed here:

    Can you replicate this on a daily basis?

    Stephen,
    Do you use IE? If so, you may have one of those annoying little trojan-horse-like things that install themselves into IE and watch where you go, attempting to give you ads that relate to where you're surfing.

    Something like Ad Aware will clean it up for you (free for non-commercial use).

    Ad Aware is a good tool. Also, be aware that sometimes pop-unders/ups appear as you leave a site. Are you consistently visiting another site before this one?

    I'll try and track it better.

    I suspected the trojan but ad aware has not found anything.

    It always seemd to happen here, so I wantd to rule out the site to see if anyone else has experienced it.

    AZ is usually my firsst visit of the day... so that eliminates leaving a site. (My homepage is an interal page here at work, so unless THAT got hacked... but I can find that out easily enough.)

    Never get a pop under ad. I think the folks above have covered this pretty well. I use AdWare, just to chime in.

    I use Mozilla Firefox.

    maybe update your ref file for ad-aware? i use ad-aware in conjunction with norton anti-virus and am adware free. i did have to run the two programs in safe mode to eliminate a particularly nasty bug i had last month.
