Unhappy I had the same problem

It seems they have some scummy advertisers that install viral ad code generators on your system. Popups start appearing on your system even when you don't have any browsers open.

I complained several times and they claimed they had tracked down the bad guys, but each time it would reapear.

I had lots of users complaining. Finally I pulled their code.

Looks like they still haven't figured out who is doing it.
