Lenovo ads on this forum killing my machine

Has anyone else noticed the load that the Lenovo ads on this forum create. Even with one window open I'm hitting >50% cpu and if I open several (as I often do) it just kills the machine.

Yes. It runs mine high and it is only this site. The earlier bunch of ads which included the Intel multi core CPU sent mine flying up to 50-60%.

Rather ironic really given it was an add for improved CPU performance.

I wasn't only thinking of myself, but also all the others that are probably suffering in ignorance of why their machines are so incredibly slow.

Anyhow, I've simply blocked the relevant ad servers. But interesting to note that the Lenovo Flash ads stopped soon after I informed the FE.
