    Adverts on Edugeek site

    Anbody else had the advert like on this screenshot? (Right hand side)

    Noticed some threads from last year about this, but looks like its back again, just hope the filters would grab it if i was in school, would not look good on a projector.

    Heh. Perhaps this a manifestation of ZeroHour and Bossman's potential future ventures...

    As was the case with my machine where I tested it, have you ran a spyware scan lately? It could be something hijacking the ads...

    I'd be checking to make sure you don't have a virus or adware, etc lurking on your machine...

    I had 1 more adult advert after that one appear and its been normal adverts ever since, such as ebay or a powertool. The adult one said the link was from doubleclick.net i presume it was legit and somthing not attaching its self to adverts on my machine.

    Ad-Aware found nothing.

    Where is it coming from? I have noticed adbrite serving up a few risque ads recently, all I can recommend to our customers is either block ads (not so hot for edugeekers who need the support) or just blacklist adbrite for being inconsiderate.

    The last time someone was getting ads like that, it was their machine had an adware infection. I doubt that kind of stuff is in IDGs catalogue.
