I can't login straight away because of a silly popup so i don't think I'll bother. Good bye PC advisor.

That's a shame, we all get fed up with popups and I think the FT one at the moment is OTT, but as has been said before the site is free and has to be paid for one way or another. I would like to see that one disappear and more user friendly popups used in this forum.

Hello obbit,

Sorry to read that you are going. I do not like the popups but feel that over the years I have logged on to this site it is a small price to pay considering the help and information I have received from members of the forum such as you. The forum is also been a place to pass some time when feeling bored and I for one glad that I am a member.

Hope it is not really good bye but if it is thanks for your input

Hello Obbit

It is a crying shame that you are going to miss out so many essential PC knowledge presented to you in such a impressive way.
Here are a few suggestion:
Install an Yahoo Toolbar which has a Pop up Stopper.
Yahoo Toolbar is free, or/and
Panicware Pop Stopper Professional - even the free version works well.
If you want more then instal Spyware Doctor.
Again, free version is very good.

I have all these and I have yet to be distracted by any Pop Ups, except in rare occassion!

ok so the pop up advert is a bit annoying but I feel you are over reacting seeing as this forum is free.If you can not log in straight away shut your browser and open again and steer clear of the point that activates the advert.
It seems some people are never pleased no matter what is available and as the F.E. HAS SAID COUNTLESS TIMES NOW NO ADVERTS NO FORUM.
