Another annoying advert

  Covergirl 21 Oct 11

We've just got rid of the video ad, now there's something (from Microsoft I think) rending the screen asunder and putting the two halves back together when you close it. Unfortunately for me, this action corrupts the screen slightly, but a refresh sorts it out.

I think were advertising guinea pigs, PCA uses us to demonstrate to advertisers know just how far they can go with an ad campaign before the red mist descends, and the benefits become outweighed by the advantages.

We're serving a vital function to the advertising industry...

QB - but we get lots of 'rewards' if we behave.

I've got the IE pop-up blocker on and tracking protection and that's it - but still no evil adverts show for me. I must be pure in heart.....

Spywareblaster stopped the annoying adverts on the side of the screen.I don't know how it works ...but it works.End of advert.

AitchBEE, interesting, it does show it blocks certain web adverts.

AitchBEE How do you know it was Spywareblaster that blocked it? Did you get a message or something to say so?

Spywareblaster is a blocker. It stops adware on a browser amongst other things. Most to do with active-x.

Interesting read.

rdave13, yes I know, I've got it. Also got AdBlock+ and other 'tweaks' to block.

I just wondered how AitchBEE could be sure that it was Spywareblaster in particular that blocked it.
