im running xp pro spybot, adaware spywareblaster useing ie6 not get that problem
After noting forum changes, decided for 1st time in months, to visit using IE and see if loading speed has improved: It has!! Yea! Unfortunately (or fortunately) Every page change or hit of back button brings up:
"Spybot has blocked download of Avenue A.inc." Bottom left shows:
"A BAD URL Http://view atdmt.com/VON/Iview/cntnk
von007 173von/direct/01/2004.06.10.05". Also mention of Doubleclick.
My very first expierence with C-Net (several years ago) involved downloading a game from C-net which came complete with "Wild Tangent"!! Hence never did that again and had concerns when Z-net came here.
Since then there has been concerns with Active X, Invisible GIFs...and now listed URL.
This is a Security, AV, Anti-spyware site. Of all places one should NOT have to be concerned about...
I would have thought all the flashing ads here would be enough incentive to carry these forums plus the obvious gained prestige of the 1000's of viewings and using these forums as athoratative sources to the world.
I wouldn't mind a cookie that only notes your progression from page to page with in the site (popularity) but unfortunately, the average comp. klutz( like myself) can only guess at what evil lurks in the heart of a cookie.
