Exclamation Can you see Pop-ups

I'm using fastclicks 468 X 60 banners only on my site, Nothing else has ever been activated. Checking out a page I was working on my buddy said my site was showing Pop-ups He mentioned what the pop-ups were, and they are the same as my 468 X 60 banners. I rechecked the Pop-up Display filter which is turned OFF plus no clicks or earnings show either Sure appreciate feedback if you see pop-ups at this siteAnimal Trial

No popups here. Tell your buddy to run adaware and/or spybot

I was concerned about the pop-ups on my web site which I have not activated... does spyware or Adaware prevent this happening on my site.

njpete,

I checked the site you provided and noticed this:
Quote:
Use Kazaa Lite 2.00 to share and download files.
Doesn't Kazaa Lite block Commission Junction and BeFree ads, or am I confusing it with something similar?

Huh, i didn't notice that link before. To be honest i think the owner of that site should rethink that one (who is a member here BTW) Because Kazaa is scumware based on what have read about them.

I mean the whole site helps in removing stuff similar to Kazaa. For some reason i apparantly have a major problem with scumware (i guess becuse i am sponsor and a lot of affiliates i look at may do forced program installs) and that site has helped me in removing 5 seperate scumware programs. I just don't get that

Okay the penny droped. I get this spyware stuff....... My friend has a popup cookie in their cookie files.. or one of the spyware/adware bugs on their system. So if they run spybot or adaware on their system to check it out.
