    Hi guys,

    Over the past week or so Ive noticed that on some websites I visit I get some small chinese banners in the corner of the page I'm looking at. These websites arent ones that should have any on them to start with (like BBC!) Just wondering if anyone new the best way to get rid of them? Is it spyware and should I be concerned? I'm running Safari 2.0 at the moment.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    It isn't a virus or spyware

    Just a wild idea, but the BBC News website now includes advertising banners if you're viewing the site from outside the UK.

    Ha, get Firefox and use Adblock Plus. Haven't seen an ad since 2002.
