Blogger in need of assistance...

I need some help from my readers... Without my permission or knowledge someone inserted a pop-up ad into my blog. I don't know how and/or where this was done. It brings up a pop-up for either blonde jokes or high arcade scores. Does anyone know how to get rid of this? I already went through the process of deleting my cookies and entire internet history. I also ran Ad-Aware and Spybot to no success.

Update: After deleting my entire browser history for a 2nd time, the annoying pop-up seems to have vanished. I want to give it another couple days to be sure though.

Texas JAM --

I usually filter my cookies as they come in (tiresome, but this is who I am...) and I noticed a popup attempt that my browser suppressed (thank you Firefox). I came back in and there was no pop-up attempt. I think you're right in that this probably has to do with the dumb blonde joke or high arcade scores cookie. I'm no expert in this, but I suspect you have some widget or code that lets this stuff in.

I haven't run into this with Adsense, and I've been keeping my widgets to a minimum. Beyond that, I wouldn't know what to suggest.

BTW -- thanks for the visit to Luna 15.
