    I have no idea how this could even be possible but there are ads all over my blog. I don't even know what to call them but they are not mine. Can someone tell me what they are and how best to get rid of them? PLEASE!

  2. The iframes from chitikaAdBlock?

    Check your plugins and see if one of them is the cause.

    I've had the same plugins for a yr, these popped over the last two months. So I don't think that would be the cause, but that being said I am not wordpress/blog/spam savvy. How would I know if one of these plugins is the culprit?

  4. Well.

    One would search all the files in your plugins folder for calls to chitika.

    A quick check at http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/ says

    status: Site verified to be secure and free of malware.
    web trust: Site not blacklisted.

    So ... do you have http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/chitika-premium/ installed?

    I don't have any plugins like that. I never even heard of it. I can look at code for all plugins (i think) to see if any name that but again, it's odd since i have been using the same ones for a year and they are basic (i think).

    Thanks for helping me ;) I'll let you know what I find out.

    Wow, that was it. I had something called AdSense, which I didn't think was activated but maybe when there was an update or something a few months ago I updated and activated. It's all gone now.

    THANK YOU!
