ok i did myself in for this one, i swear i was trying to download a silly typing tutor to improve my keyboard skills a bit, got it off some mirror site and then noticed that this wierd pop-up was turning up near the taskbar, it looks vaguely like a windows alert, but its not and it happens everytime i click on a link from a search engine, (doesn't matter what search engine) and it advertises a site, blurb and link. Everytime i right-click on it, it dissappears. Any ideas on how to get rid of it? I've run Adaware, spyware, The latest Nortons anti-virus and i have pop-up blockers. i've tried to see if it is a program running in the background but nothing unusuall is popping up in the task manager. Can anyway shed some light on this???
