Ditto - I found that if you don't close the window (just leave it behind the browser), it won't keep opening.

I am totally confused by this. I don't have any popup windows. What are you talking about?

hmm...that's weird, I've been gettin em too. As soon as the forum page loaded I got this popup window ...
http://www.speedyclick.com/perl/myprepopjaguar.cgi?adcode=zct1109335oct9
... maybe it's related to Netscape cause the title says "Netscape: Pop up"
If you click it off the screen you just get another one in it's place.

Jon, I was getting a console every time I opened an unread message. The console said "Click here to win a Billion Dollars". It's strange, but I haven't seen any today.

well, that is really weird. I have been getting those popups all over the net recently, but not here at guitar tricks.

OK, I just changed the ad company for the forum. Did the popups go away?
