    iPad ad...virus?

    I tried to get to the website earlier and was blocked by a full page ad for the new iPad 2. On the bottom of the page it said something like "Presented by CycloneFanatic". I couldn't close the ad, it kept opening new windows over and over. I tried a virus scan and nothing came up but I'm a little paranoid.

    Re: iPad ad...virus?

    I got that yesterday. I just closed my browser (I had to go to task manager to do this, CTRL+ALT+DEL), and then reopened everything. I haven't had any issues since. But I was equally paranoid after I couldn't get away from it.

    Yeah I got it a day or two ago. I just exited out of my browser and got back on. Haven't seen it since.
