If date and time are correct, I'd look for another cause, other than your mental state though...
Had your computer checked for malware lately?
Well now I think I have some empathy for how those people who have multiple personalities. Some dispute they exist but I won't argue for it either way other than to say that it is a strange feeling that you did something you don't remember doing and I do not remember posting this other topic just a few days ago. ANYWAY, this not being The National Enquirer but a forum for those of us struggling with wayward computers - I will respond with further information about the suspect going-on with my computer.
Bearing in mind my two somewhat overlapping threads/issues --- as regards the nuisance pop-up site which defies my best efforts (admittedly using "thrifty" software programs) to maintain a safe and secure and happy peaceful environment in which browse the vast sometimes forboding WORLD WIDE WEB.
I find it very ODD and yes, VEXING that despite the fact that I have Ad-Block and several other programs running meant to keep out the riff-raff I continue to get this damnable exortation/proposal to take the Time-Warner Customer Survey. To further embellish: I have also set firefox preferences to block all communications from the purveyors of this scam intrusion and yet incredibly AGAIN TODAY (doing away with the theory that I undid the protection with my system restore) I found that my preferences to block them had been un-done. AND I find it ESPECIALLY IRKSOME that while I continue to get blocked from certain sites that might be DANGEROUS AND NOT SECURE (that are not a threat but reliable sites like my bank whose security measures seem too stringent to me - but maybe that's because my amassed fortune is dwindles monthly to the near zero mark - I haven't enough funds to lose any sleep over losing) - that despite these blocks and programs and so forth I am prevented from accessing my bank but these damnable survey people are like something from Friday Fright Night that just won't die.
Again just an hour or so ago they visited yet again. Here is the information I managed to ascertain and record for posterity:

In the Permissions on Firefox I set to Block All from the Survey site.
Security says I visited this page 3 other times before today (but it has been many more times actually) AS FAR AS I KNOW.
Firefox says its not encrypted
Says website does not supply owner information
VERIFIED BY: NOT SPECIFIED.
PLEASE NOTE MY PROTEST: Despite the above disclaimer that the SURVEY SITE has an unspecified verifier and is non-encrypted - wouldn't you think that would leave it in the same SITE UNSECURE category that causes Firefox Guardians to rear their heads and bar me from exercising my Constitutional rights to visit where I please? Like a wayward recalcitrant child I am FORCED to SIGN AN AGREEMENT which several times with ANNOYING redundancy reminds me that I am willfully and knowingly defying the very learned professionals of Firefox --- stating I want to THROW CAUTION TO THE WIND and charge ahead to who knows what hellish website - WHY DOESN'T THIS SURVEY DEMON meet the same Gnarly PESKY obstacles?
SORRY - sometimes when I am feeling righteous indignation I end up being rather long-winded.
I confess I have no technical knowledge of computers. I am a hopeless rooky who knows just enough but not enough of the internet and its environs - it is the common-ordinary-everyday me who protests the unfairness of it all. As though pesky nuisance con-artists and carnival hucksters give any consideration to being fair and displaying good character and morals.
