    Just by some wanker, not necessarily by neopets. Run a virus check and get a spyware nuker.

    Where was the link? If it was a posted link there might be an error, if it was a thread title, etc its more likely to be a hijack.

    I've heard of Neopets before. I don't think it's spyware. Think of the Tamagotchi, but on a computer instead.

    Everyone here have heard of Ad-aware and Spybot. Another good program to add to your collection is "Spyware Blaster" from www.javacoolsoftware.com - It adds a huge blacklist into the restricted zone of IE and selectively blocks cookies on IE and on Mozilla/Firefox. Stick with AAW and SS&D for the removal and Spyware Blaster for more of a prevention of spyware.
