Justed picked this up. thought I'd pass it along.

SECURE COMPUTING: Stuff to keep you safe from harm!

 

THINK HARD ABOUT THE VALUE OF THIS POP-UP BLOCKER.

 

The ZeroPopUp Companion Toolbar promises to stop those irritating

ads. And maybe it does. But it also adds aggravation to your life.

 

The download for this thing includes a viral Trojan. This program,

to addresses there. And it tells people that you are recommending it.

Meanwhile, the Toolbar changes your Internet Explorer home page. And

it changes your search engine. You can get more information at:
