    i used adware6.0 and cleaned all my stuff then then i think hijack this for future protection. No problems with kinda popups or anything when just idle

    I'll try that... I ran spybot and it came up all clean last night that was the last thing i did after running anti spy... It really bugged me that i saw this... it has to be internal i'm behind a firewall (norton) I have a pop up stopper running this shouldn't be happening..
