I get a bunch of popups when I load this site! Is it just me, or are any of you other guys having this problem as well? images/icons/frown.gif

It\'s quite annoying. It\'s like 3-4 ads of some kind (I always click them away before I actually read what they\'re about)

Try running Ad-Aware... I\'m sure you have some spyware and cookies that trigger ad-popups when opening certain sites you OFTEN visit.

I remember a week or so ago, I clicked on a trick link on the composer vote site which brought up a bunch of porn pages... now, I don\'t have anything against naked woman under normal circumstances, but i\'m sat in a studio full of other people...and I had to do a ctrl-alt-delete to get rid of it!

That was quite a fright. images/icons/wink.gif

Popups are becoming a pain. There are a growing number of companys who use spy ware to send you spam email etc. Some of these come from cookies , be very wise where you surf. Just connecting to a site could place spyware on your system. There are programs out there to combat this. The most I think we\'d go on this site is banners maybe one that would come up once a day for any contest or give aways we have. We hate pop ups also.
If you are receiving pop ups when you hit our site they are not from our site. You may want to check the cookies in your browser.
