    Pop up "congratulations you won an Ipod" message

    Jon and others,

    Any suggestions how to eradicate this? It has been a constant the past few days. It is a dancing pop up box that says "you won an Ipod click here, etc."


    Thanks,

    None of the vendors we work with are authorized to use popups. Could you please take a screen shot of the pop up when it occurs and email it to me? Thank you

    Jon, Its a "mediajmp" malware. I can't remember just how to get rid of it but its been on the site all week. If you click on it you will have other pop-up issues. I will research.

    that is a 300x250 standard ad. It's in a the standard position where we have ads. It's not a pop up.

    Jon, are you saying that's an Ad? If so, that's an odd looking ad. Normally ads sell or promote something. The iPad 'ad' appears misleading to say the least. I'm also guessing I really won't receive that iPad. I'm also guessing you wouldn't want me to click 'Yes' or 'No' if I was on your PC.

    I know that it's not a pop up as it's in the exact position where we have 300x250 ads. I am looking into it with my vendors, as I agree I do not believe there is any free ipad2 involved.
