As I'm browsing the helproom today, some fairly innocuous words such as PC, or internet, or email, are under lined. If i place the cursor over them, some kind of pop-up opens to reveal an ad for a product or service related to that word. I've never noticed this before. Is is just me ?

No, its not just you. This was introduced by PCA some time ago as, I suspect, a means of subsiding the cost of running these forums.

It has been this way for a while now. Some of the links are useful and some are of no use to me. Cheers

This function only operates in IE and its clones. If you find it disturbing, change your browser to Netscape or Opera.

As mark500 points out, the info regarding this is at the top of the page.

People read only what's of interest to them and this proves the point.

Unsolicited "Advisory" postings regarding back-ups, and the way to post a question etc. are not much help at all really because the folks they are aimed at will never read them resulting in quite longs threads from some regulars saying things like "good post" or "hear, hear" and so on.
