A false track cleaning system now pops up when browsing this site.
This is in fact Spyware.

So, it's calling itself "Ultimate Cleaner" now. Well, Ultimate Cleaner, DriveCleaner, ErrorSafe.... whatever it chooses to call itself, it's a piece of malware crap either way.

No wonder, I only use Firefox, that explains why I've never seen it XD

IE is a crappy browser any way.

ah, yes, but does it pop up if you've never viewed "adult sites", like it says it pops up because of?

I've never seen it either, though.

Yes, it does. The ads try to use scare tactics on you by rather generic threats, like you putting your marriage or your work at risk for having had "erotic material unknowingly installed on your machine". Except... I'm not married and my workplace couldn't care less whether I was surfing porn or not, so even if I was, that's two "risks" right out the window.

thanks for the warning... i havn't encountered it yet though...
btw.. have you scanned your computer with some spyware removal software yet? cause there's a high chance that the crappy spyware is in your computer.

By the way, there are occasional "warnings" claiming that your system is infected by viruses/spyware and offers free scaning; don't touch those too. These aren't updated yet.

This is how the internet works, if you have a bit of common sense then you won't even
click on it in the first place.
But so far I've have not seen that popup yet.
