From what I've seen, Paradigm never uses ads. So, it's probably some adware installed on your computer.

New style? what do you mean, do you mean like they are the same color as style you have and they say messanger on them? or just normal pop up windows? because I'm not getting anything....

You might have Windows messanger activated or you have spyware....once I know what you mean I can help...

That's what I was thinking. Funny how they never pop up until I come here. >_< Well, time to run my anti-spyware program again.

Just random popups.

Like the others said, it must be adware. This site has no ads, and if it ever does, they definitely won't be popup ads.

I take it you agree Pop-ups are the scum of the internet?

Of course. Big Grin I wouldn't want to annoy our visitors with popups when I can't stand them myself.

Okay, here's the names of some anti-spyware proggies I swear by.

1: AdAware. It's very user friendly, but it's usually last in line to get updates.
2: Spybot Search and Destroy (Also known as Spybot S&D). I LOVE this program. It's Merciless, Devious, Sadistic, Cruel, and Malicious to adware. Although it's not as user friendly, and some of the people on their forums are sorta... elitist.

Together these two proggies clean out ANY computer but good.

But, if it's IE, there are some ad-viruses (I call them Ad Viruses because that is what I feel Adware is) that latch on to a copy of IE and the only way to remove it is to do a complete re-install of IE. And that is harder than it sounds and looks.

I dont even bother with IE, it kept making me angry, so I switched to Mozllia Firefox, and its working alot better.
