    In the forum dog house.
    Lately my browser has been getting hosed and my XP computer has been sucking in adware that eventually turns viral.

    Where could it be coming from?

    Well here it is, on every single page of this forum...

    <!-- BEGIN NetShelter Ad Tag for Phandroid 120x600 -->
    <!--
    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
    if (!window.netshel_ord) { netshel_ord=Math.random()*10000000000000000;
    }
    if (!window.netshel_tile) { netshel_tile=1; }
    document.write('<script language="JavaScript" src="http://ad.doubleclick.net/adj/ns.phandroid/androidsponsor;sz=120x600,160x600;tile='+netshel_tile+';ord=' + netshel_ord + '?" type="text/javascript"></scr' + 'ipt>');
    netshel_tile++;
    </script>
    -->
    <!-- END AD TAG -->

    All about Doubleclick.net

    Google screws net users with crap like this. The irony is overwhelmingly disappointing. But forum owners don't have to have that corn-holing script on every page.

    May I suggest moving to Firefox and installing the NoScript plugin? Stops all that crap cold.
