Hi, im having this problem with my internet provider Megacable, when im on certain websites they put pop ups about my account and the deadline for the payment, thats isn't what worries me but the fact that they CAN do it, any tips about how to stop this? would a proxy or vpn solve this problem? if not, what could i do? additional details: they seem to do this through the address 200.52.196.215 i have already blocked this with my hosts file but there may be more servers. thanks for the help. oh right, i will be gone for 1-2 weeks due to personal matters so i will not have the opportunity to give more details about my problem.

For them to create popups, they would need to have some sort of toolbar or other software on the system. I suppose if you were using their DNS servers they might be able to pull off something funky like this as well, but I'm not 100% sure. A screen shot of this would be useful. I have dealt with many ISPs that like to install custom A/V, toolbars, or customer support tools on the machines that are all capable of such fallacies. Looking forward to hearing more about this topic.
