    Hi there.

    Listen, in the last 24 hours something has happened to my safari.

    In EVERY single page I open, there is a banner appearing right at the top of the page.

    I have pop ups blocked, and windows still open. I have reset Safari 4 times... nothing makes this thing go away.

    Anyone else had this problem?

    I include a few pics

    Please help... some of the banners are quite explicit and unsafe to open in the office... so it's getting annoying to open safari, incase 5 naked women start jumping while I'm with my boss.

    Did you install some sort of plugin? Have you checked ~/Library/Safari?

    I think you've installed something as a plug-in; that's the only thing that would show up on every page. Have you tried opera or firefox?

    I notice a little x in the upper-right of each ad. Have you tried clicking it?

    it might be a dns issue or ISP issue?

    you can tell if its a safari problem, by testing a different browser. preferably not webkit based. i.e., firefox, or opera.
