    Hi everyone,

    I have a blog http://www.thetechgears.com. Recently I see a popup ad showing http://www.perfectmatch.com ads. By investigating the source code I suspect that the ad is from Overture. But I have not installed any ads on my site.

    I wonder how that ad came into my site. Kindly help me figure out how to remove that ad code. Where can I find this popup code in the theme files or plugin files?

    Thanks and Regards

    The blog I need help with is thetechgears.com.

    The blog you specified at thetechgears.com does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.

    That is not a free hosted WordPress.COM blog. You are posting to the wrong support forum. We do not provide support at WordPress.COM for any installs of WordPress.ORG software. We provide support only for free hosted WordPress.COM blogs being hosted right here on this multiuser blogging platform.

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org have different log-ins and run different versions of themes with same names.

    If you don’t have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.
