Hi there, please help, I am new to the PC advisor helproom , whenever I try to open the database - an advert takes over & directs me to the advert site ! ... how can I stop this ? Thanks.

Is this a database such as Excel, or Internet Explorer when you go online?

'Hi Graham, this is an IBM advert - that flashes up as soon as I attempt to click on the "database" link - does that help ?'

Do you think it is the underlined adverts on the forum? I stopped them on mine some time ago, so I don't know if they are still there.

Same message.

Are you there, westgolf? If you scroll down, you will see a box 'Add a new response...'.

In there, tell us where this 'database' link is. Is it on your computer, or on a website?

when I place my mouse pointer over the "database" link, it immediately shows an advert, that if clicked upon, takes me to the advert site , which was IBM this morning , does this help ? Thanks.

"when I place my mouse pointer over the database link" - at the risk of repeating Graham WHERE is this "database" link? Is it on a website? If so, which one? Forum members will find it very difficult to help you if they don't know exactly what you are trying to do.

Is the database link on this forum?
