Just for the record, I think I have received a few pop-ups just after rackshack took over. I am pretty sure about my PC cleaning skill, so it seems that they came from webhostingtalk.com. At the time, I thought headsurfer was experimenting with pop-ups' performance.
The only reason i thought it was from here was 1.) it always happened after i reloaded the main page (or any sub pages i think..) and 2.) it was about hosting and 3.) it didn't happen if i didnt have wht open.
I dont think i have any of those ad things.. but I'm not sure. it was on "my" computer at work
Originally posted by FDrive Yeah... that sounds like the type of thing that Kazaa and other similar programs will install on your computer. I've never seen a popup ad on WHT (and hopefully never will )
I haven't noticed any but then most of them time I run with the "Allow doccuments to create windows" box unchecked. Popups are bad for everyone but the site owner. And they are sometimes pretty good for the site owner :-D ( CPM wise )
I have checked it from 3 different locations/computers.
When i visit WHT in Opera, i see 3-5 reloads of EACH PAGE first ... oh.... i can only see 3-5 advetizing first. Then page is loading correctly/ What is a problem? You can check it - just look at server logs (you know my IP)
H2 - It was moved to the new server using the exact same code, apache, php, etc.. I just tried opera on one of our stations and it works fine there, we have a linux station loaded up with opera and it works fine on there as well.
After installalation, restart your PC and watch those ZoneAlarm pop ups and you will be amazed at how many programs are trying to get in/out of your PC when you are connected to the Internet.
Those programs already installed to the infected files in your PC, there's nothing you can do about it as it attach itself to some files (dll) and removing the files will only cause some often used links(favorites) being inaccessable.
Using Ad-aware to locate all those suspected files is good where you are aware what programs have already infected your PC.
BUT be warned when using Ad-aware, DON'T ever CHECK those files and move it to the IgnoreList, if you do that, then most of your links in favorites won't work and most probably some of your programs installed in your PC. Just be careful when using Ad-aware.
If you often download free programs/scripts/others and don't have ZoneAlarm installed in your PC, read below:
CME II Client Application is an online advertising software program. CME II Client Application became resident on your computer most likely as the result of a download. Many programs bundle advertising spyware into their product installer to in order to achieve some measure of revenue. This is one method of offsetting the costs of developing free software distributed on the Internet. The purpose of CME II Client Application is to collect online usage statistics and transmit them to a home PC.
