Zedo.com pop up

This is the second day in a row where I have opened EF only to have a pop up window for Zedo.com open asking me to play Jewelkraft.
Is this something the EF has okayed or something funny my end?

Re: Zedo.com pop up

sounds a bit tame for the local, now if it was a pop up offering loans at 40000% apr, send all your money to our shady investment company, a worm that steals all your personal data and stores it for no reason, then I'd understand

Mcafee is not so great, since it is so popular (best marketed), the folks who come up with the malicious stuff eagerly design around it. Better to go with some of the less widely known ones.

My gamer IT friends "swear by" Spybot Search & Destroy or Spyware Doctor and Malwarebytes to get rid of malicious non-virus type things. Kaspersky or Avira are what they generally recommend for anti-virus.
