I have sponsored ads by mylot coming up on my website. They are promoting products using keywords similar to the products I am trying to sell! How can this be happening?

Hello Kirsty

In order to assist you further we will need a little more information. In your Yola account I can see two websites. On which of them are you experiencing this problem? I went to both of your sites, and I wasn't able to see any ads on your website. How do they appear? In a pop-up window or directly on a page of your website? On which page?

Kirsty,

Can you run an adware detector through your computer. This may in fact be something that settled in on your PC and typically this comes in with a toolbar but may of course be attached to other types of downloads. A number of users have reported similar over the last few months..

If it's a toolbar generally a simple uninstall of the toolbar will remove the problem but it's still a good idea to run the adware detector.
