    I was working on my PC today, and suddenly a window popped up and started
    streaming a Lion Nathan advertisement in fairly good quality video - using
    my jetstream free mb allowance.

    It seems that some company called MediaOne (how generic is that !!) is
    behind this, I have no idea of how they are able to push this onto my
    pc.....the window looked suspicously like windows media player, which was
    playing a music cd at the time.

    Ad-aware and spybot (up to date signature files) find nothing on my PC .

    Anyone else seen this?

    Change your Activex and javascript settings to prompt? It was probably
    an ad on a web site that was open in the browser. Change browser to NOT
    IE?
