I thought burstnet was one of the Ad Companies that places ads on WI?

At least thats the site I thought I saw when I set up Ad Block plus to block all the banner ads for me on WI

I think Justin said the only ads on here are from Tribalfusion. Are the two somehow related, or owned by the same company?
Sorry, the only pop up we used to have were tribalfusion, but I don't think the same applies to ads.

Add/Edit: I just saw something at the bottom of my browser saying "waiting for burstnet."

Yes, getting the connecting to Burstnet quite often. Since your computer, texassmiley, has been threatened by them, I question whether or not we all are not being attacked. It's related to WI, from what I can tell.

Not from WI....but Rather from the Company WI uses to provide Ads.

Now that you mention it, Latley, My Windows OneCare Security System is telling me my status is fair.

Everything seems to work fine with me when I'm on Firefox, since Ad Block Plus gets rid of All of the Ads on WI

Maybe Justin needs to look into this?

Okay, I am not sure if this is related, but since we are on the topic of the possibility that WI maybe linked to a an unsafe service provider... I spent the better part of last night removing a Trojan off of my computer. Vundo. what it does is pops these advertisements at inapprproriate times and tries to download info onto my computer, slows things down and tries to get you to download this program that gets rid of viruses. My AVAST caught it and blocked the connection, BUT I had to remove both Adaware 2007 and Avast in order for Windows live One Care to get rid of it. It was one of those really sneaky ones that pops in and out and getting rid of it was going to be too hard for Avast. It kept popping in and popping up.
ANYWAY, the point here is this, I don't think I got it from Webkinz Insider. I clicked on a link in another persons post. She was hollering HEY LOOK AT WHAT I GOT and silly me, because she was new she had a different type of link...the darn thing dowloaded something and be HANGED if I couldn't find it...sneaky little beggar...so I reported that post... a few minutes later, she writes ANOTHER post almost identical to the first one with the same link. This time I don't click. BUT ever since that person has been on Webkinz Insider I have had to wrestle with this sneaky underhanded Virus... I don't think it is Webkinz insider.

I always used to get a popup on the home page of wi that said what was she thinking? Click here to get a free celebrity tool bar, and it had a picture of Miley Cyrus, but latley I havn't been getting it. That is wierd how you are still getting popups though.
