I run Window XP SP2 with Firefox and I am very upset right now. I was just browsing the web and suddenly I get a pop up that says that I need to have my hard drive scanned. I click no and it pops up with something that says I have 948 things that need to be erased. I click cancel, and it tries to download an executable to run. So I call their technical support and they say that's the advertising department, and it has nothing to do with them. So I try to send them an e-mail from their site, and found out that unless you have registered with them, you can't send them one.
My question, is it legal for these companies to do this? Wouldn't this be intrusion and harassment?
By the way, I was not on any bad sites. I do not visit them. The websites I visited today were webmd, my church's, my mail, and a miata forum. Sorry, just a little upset right now, sorry for the long post.
