YELLOW MICROSOFT 365 ADVERT

I appear to be on a never ending circle with the Microsoft advert for 365, it has taken me two hours to log in as this advert seems to be fully taken over each and every time that I press a command on PCA. Just been able to get on now even though the advert came before each window, anybody else got this. cannot search for a previous thread incase I lose this window!!!!!

'Sorted' Spyware blaster stopped the problem. No more continually going around in circles with microsoft 365, no more page freezing surely they should have checked what their advert would do, or do they consider any advertisement how ever bad is good advertisement.

Morning Ventad, I posted a "complaint" about this add a few days ago and got 1 reply!! Put pop up blocker to highest setting and it seemed to go away, but no it's back now with a vengeance!! Took me several re-tries to get on PCA site as the big yellow add takes over the whole page and won't let me move on now, even with pop up setting at highest. (Internet Explorer my Browser)

PCA site has been my homepage for several years now but am thinking of getting rid of it. Please Forum Editor will you let us know how to stop the ad, or get rid of it for us??

clock Download Spyblaster from filehippo. com that will sort the problem but make sure you click enable all protection. I never got the problem until I downloaded the 2007 office pack updates two days ago, I am sure that it was the updates to office started the continual cicuit of adverts.

ventad - Doubt that it is an update to office that caused this. This is caused by whoever designed/creating the ad not getting it right and seemingly fail to test it adequately.

These intrusive ads are REALLY getting on my wick ! PCA must be well aware of the annoyance they are causing. How about it FE, how do we dump them ???

I can see what you mean but, I never did see the advert until I had loaded the 2007 Microsoft service packs , I downloaded them rebooted then switched off the laptop, next day for the first time the annoying split screen continual start up circuit began on PCA everytime I pressed a command button on PCA to even close it it started again. I wondered if there was an exe file in one of the patches to start it, it was even started on IE9 at the same time which I never had on threads people were saying that they have had it since september.
