    I'm Getting an Ad When I Come to This Site

    Every time I've come here for the past couple of weeks, whether I've logged in or not, I get an advertisement on my screen, sort-of like a pop-up ad. It's usually an ad for adultfriendfinder.com or some similar establishment which I hardly think Skadi would endorse. I only get it when I use Mozilla, not when I use Internet Explorer.

    Anyone else get this?

    AW: I'm getting an ad when I come to this site

    Seems you are infected with adware. Install this to remove it:

    http://www.spybot.info/en/spybotsd/index.html

    Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.

    Thanks everyone. I installed it. I'll see how it goes from here.

    I also always get an ad when visiting Skadi. It's from a large Dutch company and only ever happens on Skadi. Spybot, Ad-Aware and McAfee all fail to remove it.

    I get this. Before it was an airline advert.

    I must have adware then.

    It slides across the screen very smoothly NOT blocking the login/password section. So I assumed it was a Skadi advert, because it looks so integrated.

    I get it, too. I even have a dynamic/'spoofed' IP address which is also run through 3 different/layered security measures. Strange. Skadi is not a "phishing" site, right?
    "...The moral man is a lower species than the immoral, a weaker species; indeed - he is a type in regard to morality, but not a type in himself; a copy...the measure of his value lies outside him. ... I assess the power of a will by how much resistance, pain, torture it endures and knows how to turn to its advantage; I do not account the evil and painful character of existence a reproach to it, but hope rather that it will one day be more evil and painful than hitherto..." (Nietzsche)
