Hi David,

This annoyance has popped up a few times. It has invariably been traced to a download of some unwanted code buried in the download.

If you can run an adware/malware scan through your computer I think you will find it.

The other way is to remove any recent downloads like a toolbar or similar that you may have added recently.

The spam doesn't show on the web-site that you have created when other users look at it, is is limited to your site only.
