Dell Advertisement

  carper 10:18 25 Oct 07

Every time I visit this web site I get a full screen advert for Dell computers when I close down ,as it seems to be lurking in the background. Is there any way to get rid of this. I am running XP Home SP2 and have a range of pop up blockers and the usual AVG,Spybot,Spyware blaster,etc. but nothing seems to move it. Any Ideas ??? Thanks Carper

What browser are you using, and how do you close the page?.

If using IE7
use IE7pro
click here
Firefox normal pop up blocker should work if not try adblock plus and a filterset
click here
I sometimes use IE in tab firefox this is the only time i see it but its normally only once per session?
hopefully someone may have an answer for IE tab

Hi spuds. I use Firefox and the advert appears when I close the page with the red cross at the top.
I have downloaded the Firefox addd-on from Raven and will see what happens. I;m not sure whether the instruction will work as I can't see a banner advert to click on.
Thanks for your replies, Carper

You need to install this ad-on for F/F at click here
and in that way YOU get to choose what scripts run on your web pages, simple to use and fully customizable.

Thanks for your replies. I have now downloaded the two links you provided and it appears that it has worked although I don't know which one. I suppose I should have tried them individually
