Do you know what PageRage is?
PageRage is the name of an application which provides computer users with a chance to customize their Facebook accounts by adding various skins. The settings of the browser are not changed; however, the skin applied is not visible to others if they do not have this application installed. Seemingly harmless, the PageRage application opens the for a third party companies to display their advertisements.
The application is designed for Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer and it is installed as a browser plug-in. The advertisements that are generated while using any of the browser are reported to be attributed to such companies as The Gap and AT&T although the advertiser claim that they are not dealing with PageRage.
If you have this plug-in installed without your approval, the odds are that you have downloaded some software to which this application was attached.
