Popups don't show up on my end. FireFox blocks all of them, which is a 
pleasant blessing. You are most likely correct though. Since my IP 
address is dynamic and I change it daily (sometimes more often depending 
on the traffic), someone else now has it :-)
I knew most of the ports for P2P (such as Kazaa, or whatever it's 
called) as sometimes folks who have been using P2P software change their 
address, and then I get the sucker...That's when I change the IP again. 
However, this was a new one to me and maybe it's new out there as well( 
a new client that's been released lately...).

Just wondered how many other folks have seen it. Have a great weekend :-)
