...is up with all these Buy.com pop-ups on Ebay lately? Did some nasty software sneaked on my computer? Anybody else being attacked by a great ammount of pop-ups on Ebay the last week? Everytime I enter the "my ebay" page, these things start; its soooooooo annoying. Mad

Hmm, I don't think I've ever gotten pop-ups at ebay. It's possible that someone attatched a spy-bot to your computer so that everytime you try to go to ebay a spyware ad comes up. Try going to ad-aware.com and downloading their free software. It takes a while but find just about EVERYTHING.

Another thing is the google toolbar. If you download it, it blocks most pop-ups, it's awesome.

I've been having the same problem and it pisses me off. After all, we pay to use eBay so the least we can expect is for it to be pop-up free right? Another thing, when I'm on the eBay site I get pop-ups for eBay. How does that make any sense?

Hmmm...no pop ups for me. But I do have a Spyware program running on my computer, so I bet it's spyware attached to ebay, not ebay itself.
