    voicefive is a leading global market research company that studies internet trends and behavior. I saw this unusual pop up on my screen with a web address on it that was ar.voicefive.com/bmx3.... and i've heard of other ar.voicefive pop-ups coming up with other people. i believe that the ar.voicefive.com/bmx3..... pop-up is an indicator of some form of cross site scripting. & if i'm right, this is happening through some program or application that you trust such as Norton Internet Security, for example, and through this program either your web-browsing is being monitored, or someone may be attempting to do something malicious to your pc such as steal files or personal information. i conspire that voicefive is doing this to conduct studies on participants who don't know they're participating but i don't know this for sure. i can't prove this. I know others have seen the pop-up & i've heard that you should get some anti-malware if you've seen it. i know the pop up is an indicator of a cookie, but i've never even heard of voicefive until i saw the "pop up" on my screen.
