What the ____ is this ?

  1. Here is a photo of a pop-up I get now and then on this forum...
    I'd like to know if it is from here or maybe, as some do, it shows its face after I leave another site...

    There is an add in the upper right corner of the screen that triggers that nasty thing, the add is not there all the time but alot..When your cursor hits that add even without clicking it yoiu will get that..The add says in small letters "move mouse here to download free"

    I always click the X in he upper rt corner, some of those things load when you hit "cancel" :confused: Not saying this one does, but I know I've hit close on some and had them try to load.

    This websight doesn't have just normal pop-ups. They are those ones that trick you into thinking XP is really trying to tell you something.... :(

    I run a pop-up stopper and never have a problem.

    Sometimes (very rarely) the pop-up stopper program misses one. I just move the mouse cursor below to the taskbar and just right click on the ad then select close. The add gets closed without activating the pop-up. I am running win 98 SE though. Not sure about XP.....

    I haven't seen this one before, but I just disabled that particular advertiser so it's gone.

    Just a reminder, these ads help us pay our monthly costs, that's all, nothing more, nothing less. It is not our long term goal to keep them up and running, but until we secure other reoccuring sources of income, they stay for now.
