I wonder is there is some spyware/scumware at work here.
Have you tried running AdAware and/or Spybot Search & Destroy to see if they catch anything?
No no spyware,
Have adaware, and spybot running on my pc along with norton, so am pretty sure its not spyware.
It is pretty common around the web. It is a small window first, then a popup after that. The small window disappears once the popup is done.
I can pm a url for you if you want to look at an example of this?
Let me know if you want that url.
Yeah, I've seen the same thing, a small square at the bottom right of the screen, not sure how it's done, but you can't close it before it opens an advertisement window.
>>I've seen the same thing, a small square at the bottom right of the screen,
Yup.. And u can't close it.. :(
If you get popup, just analyze the source code.
Source code is gone before you get a chance to open it.
That's what I'm after.....
I think this might be the source:
var d=new Date();var r=(d.getTime()%8673806982)+Math.random();var u=escape(window.location.href);
('<scr'+'ipt'+ to avoid detection........
Is anyone seeing or suspecting something different... I can PM the url to anyone.

I've noticed that :
a few places recently, looks like the toolbar creators will have to use some imagination to block these.
Can't really see them doing that until this is much more widespread than I've seen.
one that just reads output of doucment.write comments or something like that.
This is all just speculation though. My tiny brain couldn't possibly comprehend something that Google would do.
