I wanted to research this before commenting further about the banner ad above. As of now the banner ad is working properly however, the same banner
ad did install an Alxea tool bar in explorer and reset my home page to MSN. It downloaded spyware to change the registry views and keys. It locked
me into the above window inasmuch that I couldn't cancel or close the window without it coming back as a pop up 2 seconds later locking me out of
closing ATS by clicking on the close radio button (X) in IE6.
I hope they compensated your website for allowing us to be infected by them to the point of having to reboot our browsers the hard way not to mention
all the hastle it caused me to make sure my system was still secure because that is most critical for me in my line of work. Thanks to Zone Alarm
they didn't get through port 1025 or 5000. I can assure you my computer was free of problems before running my mouse over the ad. What gets me is I
didn't click on it, just ran over it while scrolling. Enough complaining, have a nice night over there.
