I went to http://www.techtv.com/screensavers and it had a download box pop up. Can anyone explain this? The download box was foir some sort of ad. That's all I know. Maybe someone here can shed some light on this

If it is any help at all, the image-link on the top of that page reading Screen Savers (which brings you to the same page) is blocked by AdShield. I couldn't get it to produce any download pop-ups. Maybe I'm too well-protected.

I found out what the problem was. One of them ads on the page got through and tried to make me download something. LOL I find this odd though cuz Loe and Patrick always talk about them evil doings by people.

It takes one to know one? ;) j/k
Maybe it is wise to alert them to the fact that one of their advertisers is pulling a stunt like that, they sometimes take things for granted.

It looks they they found who was doing that cuz I went there with adshield off and proxo bypassed and no download box popped up. The only thing that popped up was a thing for spybot. here's a pic of it.
