No virus...could be an advertiser w/shady practices though. In that case google will probably find & take care of automatically.

I don't see the same thing and would like to see a screen shot though if someone can send me one. If I can figure out the advertiser, I'll block it.

Thanks,
Rick

I found it and have removed all ads in the classifieds until I figure out where it's coming from.

Best I can tell, I've got it taken care of now, but will keep an eye on it for awhile. I appreciate the heads up.
