It told me I won an IPad and then asked me a lot of personal questions and would I like a 1000 dollars sent to my bank account. it looked like a scam because it then asked me load some software which is where I draw the line. I am surprised that FT would allow something like this.
If FT is not responsible it looks like my popup blocker and Adaware didn't function for this.
The answers to all of life's problems are really quite simple.
We just don't like the answers.

I made the mistake of upgrading my browser to IE9 and also started seeing this. Previously I had used IE8 with an addon product that was recommended here called IE7 Pro, which also worked with IE8.
After the update, I started getting that popup as well as double underlined words on websistes that would show an ad if I hovered over it.
From clicking around, I found out it was an addin to the browser that could be uninstalled from control panel. For the life of me, I can't recall the name of it, but if you browse through your installed programs in control panel, you'll see the name of one with (uninstall) next to the name.
Get rid of it and you'll stop those annoying ads.
FWIW - I reverted back to IE8 and my addin started working again. I'm not seeing any annoying ads.
Life is too short to spend it being angry
