The subject line says it all.

The forum seems to have morphed into an ad attack.

Although these are not pop-ups, and of course I understand that the sponsers must be supported,these intrusions are offensive.

I'm so irritated that I'll participate in the forum less because of the distraction and specifically avoid the venders with the offensive adds.

Is there a way to turn them off?

easy:

in Internet Explorer:

go to Tools->Internet Options->click the ADVANCED tab->scroll down until you see MULTIMEDIA then unselect "Play Animations in webpages"-> click APPLY !

and that's it !

You have a spyware infestation that is local to your machine. Try a reputable antispyware program such as lavasoft's adaware. There is a free version that works pretty well, but you may need bigger firepower. www.lavasoftusa.com

Good luck...

Sergio. thanks.

I tried it. I get a message that says that "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator"

what the hell is all that about?!

I don't have a system adminstrator!

I'm the only one who uses this computer.

thanks in advance

Not Dreaming,

He's just seeing the banners that are supposed to be on the page here but like me, finds it distracting.

You're right in suggesting that he may have spyware, most people do to some extent.

That's not what is causing this particular grief though.

Sergio,

Thanks for the hint. It works great.
