Vuze reps checking ads BEFORE they use them.
If Vuze reps would check what ads they allow through their application BEFORE they use them so as to reduce viruses which are attempted to be downloaded through the ad display, it would help users immensely. Getting fake flash player downloads and other virus download prompts as well as browser hijacks through the ads UI really takes away from the desire to use the program or donate to a program that isn't being properly maintained.
I'm sure the malware ads are set to show up for targeted reagons, that way admins will never see them. Consider that the ad provider as a whole is faulty if they have any ads like that.
"We offer malware ads, but you can choose not to run them, and most of the time it works." -- time to get ads from somewhere else rather than trying to filter them better.

If you could grab a screen shot of any of these misbehaving ads that would be great, and any context that might indicate their source would help too. The ad provider has filtering in place that is supposed to block such ads, but without evidence of a bad ad it is hard to follow up on them.
