I think there's more that can be done than that. As individuals we can register complaints to Imageshack and as a forum we can withdraw our recommendation of ImageShack to our members. If we informed them officially - a decision that lies in the hands of the site owner and staff of course - that this was happening I would have thought it would apply pressure to Imageshack to reconsider their advertising criteria.

Your current advertisements which begin "Warning Spyware Notice" promote a product called SpywareCleaner which is listed as rogue anti-spyware at the Spyware Warrior site http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm
As a member of a computer help forum which specialises in removing malware from computer systems, I am alarmed that you should allow the promotion of such dubious software. The advertisement is deceptive as it pretends to be a message from the user's system, and the product it advertises is of dubious benefit for reasons detailed at the Spyware Warrior site. Use of this product in place of peer-approved products may make the computer systems of your members (and ours) more vulnerable to spam, spyware and other malware.
I hope you will review your criteria for advertising content and prevent such material from appearing in future.
