    Hi,

    This is Jackie from Paypopup.com. We're sorry about the troubles our pops brought up. However, we're an advertising agency, basically what we do is having our advertisers' ads displayed on publisher's websites and we do not install any softwares to user's computer.
    Can you please submit us an illegal ad report via this link HERE, so we can start the investigation.
    We will try to trace the source of the pop based on your IP address and the time you see the pops, so please make the report right after you see the pops and leave us your contact email there as well.

    Regards.

    I can't get to the page you posted. I think the site is blocked in my "hosts" file. Do you have an e-mail or alternate page I can access? I have been getting "paypopup" and other popups for a couple of weeks and I have tried about every thing I can found on the net to get rid of it with no success.

    The primary popup seems to be "loadingwebsite.com".

    It is very annoying.

    I just removed paypopup. I did a search on google to see what it was. I found this thread.

    You can remove it with XoftSpy v4.15.97, and spysweeper.

    You should run Regestry Machanic too. Very good program.

    paypopup,It is spyware!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    paypopup is making me go insane. I get sound ads playing but nothing else other then a popup that says "paypopup.com/?ref=Luweb". I can not get rid of this crap.

    As i posted above a year or so ago, u all might want to post a HijackThis log, say, over at this site,

    http://gladiator-antivirus.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=10517

    for analysis by the malware experts there, then they will give recommendations on removal of Paypop or any other crapola lurking on your systems.
