I'm pretty sure I have no such spyware installed. It seems the ad is
only displayed one time, so to make it reappear one has to clear ones
cookies.

After reading <http://www.webstats4u.com/service/#ads> it seems likely
the webstats is responsible. If popup ads once in a while is
acceptible for whatever service they provide to everyone else I guess
I'll have to live with it.
