Hi Gem welcome to HTG,

i have been playing pongo too haven't played in a while but i think what you are seeing is a plug in for facebook for you to join mine goes away a few minutes but if it presist i would reconmmend running this http://www.superantispyware.com/index.html download the free verson or try this http://download.cnet.com/Malwa.....tag=button it's nice to have you here on the site. Edit, it might be a active x plugin trying to entice you to join too.

@ john,

Does an adblocking programme have no function against this ?

@ guiltyspark
yes, if you click the stop sign for ABP then you can click the easy create filter then click any element of a webpage or pop-up and you can have it blocked for good.

GS, no afraid not since pogo is mainly a ad drivened site the adblocking practice will block some of the graphics of the game that you are playing some games do some don't but even on the ones that do pogo puts up a warning to turn on the adblocker anyway so you can't win for loosing.

@gem
I tried to recreate your problem. But I don't get the pop-up. Are you signing into pogo using your facebook account?

Edit: I was able to recreate your problem when I signed in using facebook. A separate window opened then closed a few seconds later.
