    Techies, help me out here. Within the last few weeks I've seen the Manhunt ad popping up all over every other website. I realize the website drops cookies in places, but does it have to come up on the Cincinnati Enquirer's website? The Indianapolis Star's? Pro Football Talk? Sports Illustrated?!?!

    Here's the kicker: I regularly clear all my recent history. Cookies. Cache. Active logins. Site preferences. And these silly ads keep popping up.

    Any advice on what to do? Granted, it's nothing offensive, but I'd rather find a way to control it.

    Run the free version of Lavasoft's Ad-Aware. I'm willing to bet you have some sort of malware or spyware infection.
