Re: More on the hijacking popups here
I use IE and Ad Muncher and I don't get any popups. Have you tried updating ad muncher's filters? There was an update not too long ago.
Edit: Actually, are you saying you still get them when ad muncher is running or only when it isn't. I've been running with it off for a while this evening and didn't see any but of course, you say you haven't seen any lately either. Also, when I had ad muncher running, there was a "munched" near the beginning of your post. So, it seems something you posted was being blocked by ad muncher.
