Default Re: Browser Hijacking Popups From Here...

We don't use an ad server. The only ads that are external to nV News are PriceGrabber and IntelliTXT. The next time you get a pop-up while visting nV News can you provide some basic information such as:

- The URL the pop-up is originating from
- A privacy report (provided by the browser)
- Attach a screenshot of the pop-up

Also, check out IE-SPYAD.

IE-SPYAD adds a long list of sites and domains associated with known advertisers, marketers, and crapware pushers to the Restricted sites zone of Internet Explorer. Once you merge this list of sites and domains into the Registry, the web sites for these companies will not be able to use cookies, ActiveX controls, Java applets, or scripting to compromise your privacy or your PC while you surf the Net. Nor will they be able to use your browser to push unwanted pop-ups, cookies, or auto-installing programs on your PC.
Other browser configuration changes you might want to consider:

- Always ask for cookies
- Do not accept 3rd party cookies
- Update security settings to disable or ask to be prompted (ActiveX controls, scripts, etc.)
