MacBook - Comcast users .

I posted this in P&R as a joke but now Im sort of worried
about it. I am on COMCAST network and using a MacBook
running 10.4.
I keep getting full, 'new-window' ads that run behind the
Bike Forums window everytime I hit BF. This happens on
none of the other websites I frequent. The Mods have assured
me BF doesnt use background wackery to force this stuff and
of course, I believe them. I have run a Clam Xav virus scan
and all comes up OK. This only leaves Comcast to be the

Does anyone else who uses Comcast get this crap and what do you do to block it ?

I'm on comcast running 10.5, usually Safari, sometimes Firefox. Haven't seen anything like that. Do you run software update regularly? If not, maybe try that.
