What is Avenue A, Inc.? Basically, they are one of those well-loved Internet marketing/data gathering/etc. companies. From the "About Us" section of their website, we get this descriptive little gem:

Avenue A | Razorfish is an interactive services firm that helps companies use the online channel as a marketing and business tool. We combine data, insight-driven design, leading technologies and rigorous optimization to build strong brands and improve relationships with customers, employees and partners.

If you really want to make yourself violently ill, read some of the other creative crapola they have posted there... [img]http://www.stevewolfonline.com/Downloads/DMR/Visuals/puke3.gif[/img]


Does the message you get come directly from IE, or is it generated by one of your antispyware programs (SpyBot, perhaps)? It sounds as though one of your adware/spyware programs is alerting you to the fact that a site is trying to put an Avenue A cookie on your machine.

Ok but how do I get rid of it? It's also asking if I want to download "double click"

I thought so; the Doubleclick and Avenue A messages from SpyBot usually come together (the sites are trying to set cookies on your machine). To get rid of the messages, please do the following:

Open SpyBot and click on the "Immunize" option. In the Immunize window, put a check mark in the "Enable permanent blocking of bad addresses..." box and choose "Block all pages silently" from the pull-down menu.
