    has any body else been getting them? i just got you're being watched, friend finder, some casino thing, and ironically, pop-up killer... i haven't gone to any other sites that would have them (edenelectronics.com, thebasspalace.com, bassgear.com) that's it though...

    my sincerest apologies if this is not the correct forum...

    get ad-aware or something to remove the spyware on your system. TB doesn't have pop-ups

    agreed, the enemy is inside your PC not on talkbass

    I bet it is KaZaA... Do you have that on your comp? I do, and ever since I got it, I have been getting the same pop ups. Tons of online casino crap. A bunch of other crap stuff too. It kinda sucks, but it isn't that bad.

  7. i have "Pop up stopper". Its freeware and it works wonders. It lets some go, but all in all it is a very good program. i think you can get it at download.com.

    Edit: Yeah, heres the link http://www.panicware.com/popupstopper.html
