BROADBAND CLAIMS ANOTHER VICTIM CONVERT....I just got back from my mother's house, where the Time Warner folks spent part of the morning installing a shiny new cable modem. They did a great job, everything works, and mom is happy.

But I discovered a problem after the technician left and it's driving me crackers: there's a popup ad that pops up every 20 minutes or so. It's not your normal site dependent popup, since it appears no matter what site you're visiting, and it shows no signs of going away. I can only guess that it has something to do with a channel that Time Warner keeps open for advertising, although that somehow seems unlikely. But what else can it be? And how do I find out?

I just hate this kind of stuff. It drives me up a wall.
