I keep getting popup ads from "Adult Love Line: Erotic adult personals." The question is, are these popups coming from this site, or do I have some sort of spyware bothering me with annoying ads?

My guess is that someone thinks programmers don't have enough of a life to get a real date. ;)

I think they adjust those ads according to the sites you visit. :D

I dont get any with Opera, so I wouldnt know.

Run ad-aware.

Download Opera... the pop-up block option makes it worth the other stupid $$$$ it does.

Mozilla has the a pop-up blocker, too, and it's free at http://mozilla.org

If you want to check for spyware, search for "spybot search & destroy". It'll remove spyware for you.

I use Popup-Stopper Pro. It generally gets the job done, at other times few popups do occur, but it ridds at least 90% of them.
