It is coming up, only on your site. My computer is clean of all files associated with this fake survey site. My avast antivirus detects nothing along with my malwarebites program and spybot.
It only appears on YOUR site, and nowhere else. It is not hindering my computers performance because it is not on my computer, but it is making an attempt to get on my computer through PSD. Stop trying to steal my information and fix your garbage site. Don't even think about telling me that the problem is on my end because I am not some Baby Boomer/Generation X incompetent computer user.

I've been experiencing this as well, but not limited to this site. It's frustrating because I also have adblock, malwarebytes, avast, superantispyware, and I've still been getting some random pop ups and new tab surveys. Sometimes it's just a blank advertising frame where it's like the ad got blocked but not the frame.
It's definitely something that PSD knows about from the forums here or because they are actually using it for their research. It seems just like something so they can grab demographic information about their user base so they know who is looking at the content and can market/provide information and services to the right audience.
Well I've determined that it is coming from something on this site. PSD is notorious for having malware implanted in their ads, and then come out and tell us that it is on our end.
If there's melware on ads, then it's probably not PSD's fault. Malware can commonly change your ads to things like porn site. however, it is annoying when we have problems with ads and we get answers like "our advertisers pay good money to advertise here. it's not fair we should have to remove their ad just because it bothers you"
I've gotten it a couple of times over the last two months as well. This isn't the first time this issue has been brought to our attention, but I was under the impression (from previous conversations with the advertising department) that it wasn't malware but simply a pop-up ad.
Each time I've come across it I just closed it and didn't see it again for a month or so.
Is the Close or "No Thanks" not working for some of you? Is that the issue?
Are you thinking that you are seeing it too often?
SDI should just buy Macs for all users so we don't have these problems.
Seriously I've never seen livejasmin, fake anti-virus programs or any sort of popup since I've switched. As long as you're smart about what you click on and what sites you go to you won't get infected unless you click the wrong thing.
