I can't use Safari anymore because a "customer survey" offering me a free iPad completely hijacked my browser. I got this bug by inadvertently visiting a website. I didn't even click on anything! I can force quit, of course, but every time I open Safari, the pop up window is still there and Safari is attempting me to take me back to this page: http://customer surveypanels.com/offer/vc1/indexc1.html?s1=vc9. I can't flush the cache because all those windows are greyed out. I haven't found any apps at work in finder. I finally removed Safari from my dock and just use google chrome. Any suggestions? These people are evil! Thanks for any help you can offer.

Usually, if you're fast enough, you can close that tab as soon as Safari launches before it has time to load the page.
I hate those scumbucket sites.
If you're using Lion you can try:
System Preferences - General - the 3rd section - take the check out of 'Restore windows when quitting....'I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
