Not sure of the specific criteria apart from the fact that Norton updates ad-related websites/pages to their NIS updates that get downloaded and installed either through LiveUpdate or manually, and the user can add sites manually when ad blocker is enabled.
Could be the customer in question, either deliberately or on accident (my vote would be for the latter) added your specific site to their ad blocking list.
Check out this place [howto.lycos.com] for a bit more info.

hasbeen, I visited the Lycos link you provided and couldn't help but laugh when they were running a doubleclick ad on this page. It just struck me as funny.

eeek, I didn't even notice that my post was edited for teh url until this morning.
As a new member I am not sure if it was considered advertising or what? The sole reason I posted it, was to show people what the whole "banners" issue on that particular web site is. I bet nobody on this type of forum really cares for that company's products. Sorry if it was considered inapropriate.
hasbeen, thanks for the helpful link.
