    I was feverishly scouring the web for a live feed of the world cup today and stupidly downloaded some Safari plugins. I uninstalled the software and now I am seeing this ad banner on top of every web page I view. I looked through the library and didn't see anything out of the ordinary there. Do you guys have any ideas? Thanks!

    Did you check the User Libraries as well as the Harddrive Library?

    I did indeed! I cleared out the cookies and that seems to have solved the issue. But have been some crazy js cookie on steroids. Thanks for the help.

    Sorry I wasn't more helpful! That's strange that it did that...I looked on various forums and no one else has mentioned it.

    I've got this same thing. Didn't install anything. Showed up a few days ago.

    are you using the adblock extension for safari?

    This for me blocks this type of thing.

    Also which if any extensions are you using?
