    Pop UP Window - I want it off

    I get this popup window everytime I try to use my menu bar. Using a demo. It somehow checks for a ulr, I think because when I use it in my browser I have no problems. Only when it uploads.

    There is lots of code and I can't find one of two things.

    1. A check for a ULR
    2. The pop up window. How is this being created. And how is it populated with text. Some how the code hides the text. Can't find it anywhere? It's like one of those warning lables. It goes away.

    Please help!!!

    I'm a newbie - this really intrests me how he did it.

    It could be an application you unwittingly installed, like the one you have to install with LimeWire that 'borrows' your browser to launch ads every now and again ... ?

    Hmm, sounds like spyware/adware. Run Ad-aware from http://www.lavasoftusa.com/ to find out what spyware is installed and optionally remove it, but be warned; some applications only work if you enable the spyware, like KaZaA for example.
