What on earth is happening to this site?

For some obscure reason about 20minutes ago, this PCA site has gone ballistic! Every time I change a page I gate a full page advert coming up. This is silly. I have no idea why it is suddenly happening, but prior to this event, I had no problems at all with adverts and only had the ones that were an integral part of the page itself. None of the bolt on type. Anyone any idea how to get back to the way of no adverts showing?

Thanks

TonyV

I can't be doing with this. I will switch off and see if someone can come up with an answer later on!!

Not getting it on IE9 and only using the browser's pop-up blocker.

If it is the Samsung add this might help.

We'll get on to this next week.

Also, we'll take the Samsung ad off the forums. It shouldn't appear more than once - could be an iPad thing.

Unfortunately this will have to wait till Tuesday, as the developers aren't back in the office till then.

I have switched off, been for a drink and switched back on and still it has taken over my machine on this site. Win7/IE9.

It is the Samsung advert, but it has only just started doing it. It has been fine for months now and suddenly Bingo! Every time I change a page on this site up comes this Blank Blank advert!

It is only this site and nothing else seems to have changed. Pop-up Blocker is switched on, but it has no effect!

Not sure what else it could be on my machine.

Thanks for comments. Buteman, your last one was of particular interest.

This was reported on another thread yesterday and PCA's simonjary has said the advert will be switched off as soon as possible after the weekend.

Now this is puzzling. IE9/WIN7, same as TonyV, but no advert.

As per buteman's message above. Fortunately, I am going away to Madeira very early on Monday morning, so hopefully it will be OK when I get back. The interesting thing is it has been fine all day when suddenly it all went pear shaped! And I did nothing!!

Cheers
