At GFs house, there were complaints about IE, so I let Windows Update install IE9.

To test stuff, I went to atomicmpc front page, watched the Mechwarrior Centurion clip (full screen at 720p) and then clicked the Forums link and I got a pop up window asking for a 3 question survey about 'atomicmpc.com.au' but hosted at some surveygroupintl.com site.

I ignored it for a while trying to look for obvious signs of falsehood and it disappeared after 10-15 seconds.

 

Was it authorised by the powers that be or should I get paranoid?

You probably should be paranoid... and while your at it check to see if you (or your missus') computer has a virus.

Yeah, that's not ours. Evil Admin thinks it's most likely malware on your girlfriend's system.

Think I found it.

Yontoo was installed.

I assume it was one of those options you need to untick when you are installing some apps.

 

Thanks for the replies.
