On my control panel in the notices box , there are adds popping up for "Hotties looking for me in Virginia"? How is this getting on this site? It even shows pictures of them:hmm:

Did you notice this anywhere else?

What browser are you using and what tool bar addons does it have? Sounds like you picked up an advertising tracking cookie

Is that a fault from our side or his side, Uncle Woodrow?

I thought it was on his PC, but it just popped up for me also. so I now believe one of those banner adds is using tracking/redirect cookies, to redirect people to individualized adds. On mine it says (in Zeeland, ND) little do they know there are no single girls in Zeeland.

I may me able to identify which add is the culprit. But I would suggest for anybody having this problem to periodically clear all cookies, but remember that in doing that all saved passwords will be deleted.

the Browser is the program you use to connect to the internet, such as Internen Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc. I believe you probably use IE if you don't know which you use. I use firefox so since I had it happen to me I am assuming it is not browser related.
