OK Dudes, these ads for tha antivirus scanner that pop up which look like a explorer window and the "Viruses" tick up and it tells you you have so many viruses that you need to do something about NEED to stop.  I understand money is required but that is bullshit.  I know the diffeence but millions of people don't and they get trapped by that company.  Do something about it or I will moce my listening somewhere else and take all my links off my webpages.

Send me a screen shot of the actual ad and I'll remove it...I have yet to get this ad so it's pretty hard to remove something I can't see.

Are you sure the ad is coming from this site. Do you have any other windows open that it might be coming from? I've never seen any antivirus ads on here or anything that you've described.

I agree. I wouldn't mind it, but it takes over the whole windows media player and I can no longer read the artist information or what's playing. I can send you the screenshot it's up on my computer right now, but I don't have a clue how to email you.

Please send it and we'll try and track it down.  It sounds to me like this is a very sporadic ad.  We obviously do not allow these kinds of ads but they slip through sometimes.

I don't think it's an ad per se. It just happened to me. I think one of the ads that is playing IN the media player has spyware attached to it. It does take over the entire media player and acts like you have a virus and starts scanning your computer. Last time I looked, WMP is not a anti-virus scanner so there's definately something devious going on here. Trouble is, I don't know which ad is causing this cause I was looking at something else when WMP popped up in the foreground and starts scanning my computer. I closed it immediately.

Everytime I get it, and on more than one machine, I scan that machien and they come up clean.  I am an IT professional and it is coming from a pop-up add after the player has been playing awhile.  It will quit playing and go to this.  DO NOT click on any of it they will suck you in.  "X" out of it all.

No do not click on the ad.  We made some more changes last night and I haven't had another e-mail about it. 

Anyone else get this today?

I tried for 8 hours last night to get this ad and it never came up.

Yup, got it again today. I had to run out and left the music running cause the kids like to listen to it too and my son said while I was out that the virus thing popped up again and he closed all my windows down and reboot the computer. He said that was about 2:30ish west coast time.

Question for anyone who has gotten this ad.   How long are you listening (hours, minutes) before this ad comes on?  Please be very specific.

Well it just popped up again on mine. Had WMP minimized cause I was playing a game in another window. I've been listening since about 11 this morning, it's almost 3:30 now. But there's been times I've had it running for much longer and it hasn't popped up at all.

Oh and as I said before, this is not an ad for an antivirus company or software. This is something more malicious that changes WMP, the normal screen is gone, there is no music, no music info, no regular ads... Just suddenly the screen shows what you'd see if you pulled up My Computer and acts like it's scanning your hard drive. I'll try to remember to get a screen shot next time. It just freaks me out when I see it and my first instinct is to close WMP.

I don't want screen shots right now.  I'm looking for the exact time it happens and your IP address.  We can track down the exact ad that you saw if you provide that information to me.  You don't have to post it on these boards, just send it to me at:  jeff@977music.com

Without an exact time and IP address, I can't do too much.  We've already remove 5 advertisers suspected of this and I believe it cut down on alot of the issues but obvious there is still a few more to go.  Please send your IP address and exact time the ad popped to jeff@977music.com

Thanks
