I have a business website and went to it only to find that Google placed a popup "Spyware" warning page. I was furious and contacted the hosting company. They assured me that there was no "Spyware" on the website. They maintain the site 24/7. I then contacted Google team encharge of "Spyware". Placing a popup of any kind on any website without notification to the owner is "HACKING" as far as I am concerned. They claim it's not. They did remove their popup within minutes of my complaint, but I am sure they drove away potential customers and sales. What do you think, is it "HACKING" when they place a "SPYWARE" popup warning page on a website without notifying the owner or host? Karen

Well, for your description looks like like Mr. Page and Mr. Brin found out about guerilla marketing. Besides my HTML instincts say something like this: add the tag security="restricted" in the frame that is calling the popup if you want to put a leash on them.
