Have you downloaded any software?
Could be parasite-ware

Have you updated any M$ product?
Put this on your site tags just in case it may be M$ prollllem

I was under the impression that this particular meta tag had no function whatsoever...yet. Is it true that this actually works in some cases on today's web?

This tag was meant to prevent smart tags on your web pages in IE6, before MS pulled smart tags from the browser due to the public outcry. It had been implemented in early betas.

AFAIK, it does not prevent smart tags from any other source.

There are some scumware programs that implement smart tag functions. Ad-aware should remove them.

There's one going around now that resides in the Windows temp file that the usual software doesn't remove. I'll have to dig back, information about it came on an email list and there were so many. Maybe someoane else can come up with it.
