    I came to the site and animal porn popped up like mad. Now I appreciate porn as much as the next guy or gal, but I don't like to be disturbed while am at the Codex. Rex are you dicking around with the site again? Probably not :) , so I'll go check for spy ware now. Any ways I just thought I'd post about this werid happening, plus it gives me a chance to implicate Ex with "goings on".

    Come to think of it, I don't even get pop-ups anymore. I never realized it. Maybe my Firewall takes care of them for me, who knows?

    The Codex shouldn't have any popups at all since we're hosted by the delightful folks at Sorcerer's now. I have no idea why you're getting that stuff.

    This is the good stuff.

    You have spyware that popups porn.

    Download spybot search and destroy. Much better than adware.

    And after that think about Mozilla firebird.

    Spybot also kill dialers if you are still in the unfortunate position of connecting with dial-up, you know the programs that stop the phone connection with your ISP and connect to the other end of the world with an isp there and then your phone bill goes up to thousants $$$$.
