    Thanks for reporting it.

    We sent some burly bouncers to escort this ad off our site.

    You are not alone fireshot91. I too have seen the Parallels ad a few minutes ago.

    I also received this one Sunday.

    I thought it was a random occurrence, but now I know I'm not alone.

    If it matters, I'm using Firefox 3.6.13 with a Flashblock add-on.


    Thank You Arn for maintaining a great site :)

    This morning too, I got the ad in the OP.

    It seems like it only comes in the mornings (EST)? I've never seen it in the afternoon/evening time.

    Nope. I only had 2 MacRumors tabs open in one window. No other windows were open.

    I clicked "cancel" and it went away.

    I too have had the "pop-out" ad for parallels. (Just 2 minutes ago).
    I'm running Safari in Lion FWIW.

    I knew right away this wasn't something done intentionally, MR is just too classy for something like this. :D

    there parallels should be gone.

    I can't speak for the zeobit one. If you see it again, please screenshot any other ads on the page.

    thanks

    I've got this one so many times!
    I did a search on my Mac for a file that said "mackeeper" and it found some sort of file. I deleted it and it appears to be gone. Not sure if that was important or not though :)
