PCA pop-ups

What has happened to the PCA website?
I never noticed this so persistent before, but today every time I hit the browser "Back" button,(IE9 beta) I get a full screen popup from "ESET... Security with every keystroke", and have to click the "skip this ad button".
My popup blocker is on and even if I set this to High level, the ad is still there... GRRRR

Any way to kill this?

Just download Adblock plus (free) that'll fix the lot

Curiously I find that IE is the best for viewing PCA. With either FF and Chrome I'm swamped with ads - which AdBlock cannot handle it seems.

Strange, guesswho2, I am using Adblock on Firefox3 and it works a treat without having to manually enter specific sites.

Howard 64, Costs of the forum are covered by my subscription but they would rather you pay full price.

Had a free copy of Pro sent to me after they must have spent a lot on an ad in Telegraph, but not taking up their offer, PC Advisor is much better.
I get a few brownie points for that!!

But how does advertising FREE software fund the forum ?

Muergo ...that's a strange link you posted, doesn't seem to have anything to do with Adblock ?

Is the Adblock software only suitable for Firefox and/or Chrome, ie can I run it successfuly with just IE 9beta ?
