PCA Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Video Advert

Not sure if this is effecting anyone else, but since this evening, the video Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 advertisement as been self activating, switching itself on every few minutes, with speech breaking into my loudspeaker system. Is there a way of stopping this, I do not seem to find a way to do so, other than the pause control?.

XP with Google Chrome.

I'm getting it as soon as I open Helproom had to mute sound.

Hi. There's a couple of threads about this on Speakers Corner.

We will be limiting the ad on Monday, but until then there's nothing we can do except advise turning the volume off.

Thanks for your patience!

Simon

Just returned, and the advert is still switching itself on, with the speech breaking into the headphone/loudspeaker system. Just doesn't seem a way to stop it at present?.

I have IE9 and can find no way to shut it up apart from hitting the pause button, but that only works on the current screen.

I am trying to listen to music while reading a few PCA pages and the interruption is most annoying.

Been experimenting with Firefox and IE6/7. No problems there, so it looks like Google Chrome. I could be wrong though?.

It's a banner ad. Normally Kaspersky blocks it and I was totally unaware of the ad. Taking the anti-banner block resulted in sound for the ad over the top of everything else and i have it too. Very annoying and I suggest a faulty ad which PCA had better sort out pdq.

Very irritating, it only stated this evening. It is enough to make you not bother to visit this forum
