Default Why is it downloading something???

Lately, when I try to open a posting or hit a "next page" link something starts trying to download (crdownload)? Just logging on right now it started trying to download a "login.php" file, I stopped it because I have no idea what these are and why they're automatically trying to download. When I hit the "login" button again it logged in fine.

Any help?

This reply is a bit too late so the original poster wouldn't read it.

Anyway, I've been seeing flash player ads embedded in a post. I tried to delete it as a moderator but only Tech, as the Administrator, may be able to delete such jokes. I deleted the entire thread and restarted it.

There are new ones appearing; ads saying that they have sponsorship relationship with our forum. Again, a moderator cannot do anything about it.

Corporates should realise that the more ads they come up with, the more annoyed the customers are. I usually refuse to buy whatever comes with excessive ads.
