Webkinz Insider does not have any pop ups anymore. If you're getting them on your computer they're coming from another site.

It might be coming from the place where you are getting your avies, tons of these "free" sites give you your avie free along with some unwanted "extras" . If you haven't try running a scan on your computer with the norten and see if anything pops up, it is possible you have things running that you are unaware of that have nothing to do with WI. The norten should detect these and remove them for you.

I did a spyware scan yesterday and it found one with the name of burstnet and I do at times get popups on the main page of WI, the last time I recieved one was last week. I do have a blocker but sometimes one slips by when I come to this site.

If you are getting pop ups or pop unders, then like FIA said, you are NOT getting them from here. Justin removed the pop under you would get when accessing the home page. I would clear all cookies and your cache and run a spyware program too.
