    WOndering if anyone out there knows anything about this pop-up.

    Usually happenes when i go to www.techbargains.com and it just happened again at http://www.tweak3d.net/tweak/deus-ex/3.shtml

    It is not your standard pop-up window but more a pop-up javascript log-in,

    What is this and can i prevent it? Thanks in advance

    No popups for me...

    check out "IESPYADS" and Steve Martins hosts file. Also look at The Proxomitron.

    Search for them :) www.google.com

    not sure if this applies to yourself but..
    apparently yahoo messenger has a flaw which allows ppl to send these pop up type adverts. find out what port these things are coming thru and block them.
