Blue:
I just had one of those fake antivirus popups (the kind that wants to install malware) that I'm pretty sure was from your site. I only had a couple tabs open (one was slickdeals which never has any kind of ads except some text ones like google) and one was your site.
I used taskkill to make sure it didn't install anything. On this new install of windows I haven't blocked your ads because of the articles I've seen about how it hurts websites (even though a significant percentage of the flash ads here like to take 100% of the CPU for periods of time), but something like that threatens my computer is making me seriously reconsider.

I was using a default install of win 7, with IE 8, with pretty much all default settings.

If I see it again I'll try to get info from it, but since I'm using IE for the moment instead of firefox its harder to get info about those kinda things.
