userious?

Anyone else find the Blackberry advert bouncing up and down on the edges annoying?

It's now been there for so long I don't even notice it! Besides, it helps to pay for the excellent site that this is.

My favourites/bookmarks leads me direct to the forum.It is only when i go to the magazine that the advert appears.Anyway we would not have the magazine/website if it where not for advertisers.

It's not actually on at this moment in time - or so it seems here, and I've no blockers.

I enjoyed the other advert which flipped the screen. Impressive !!

I too found it intensely annoying, but Simple Adblock 1.0.9 got the cane out of the cupboard.

Unfortunately you have to pay for Simple Adblock now.So not sure if it is an early version you have.

I have recently upgraded to IE9 and although the Advert is there it is static and not a nuisance.

buteman - google it or download from Cnet, it's not free but I had a 30 day trial. When they ask me to pay I will, worth every penny because it works. Try it.

I have used the free version when it first started and it got hacked a few times, no doubt it is a far better program now.

I am sure there are better programs if you have to pay.

IE7 pro Add-On is still free as long as you do not download the latest version.It works ok on IE8 or below but not so good on IE9 although it still works.
