is there any way of stopping the current microsoft advert on the pcadvisor homepage from starting up automatically every time i access the homepage here? the only way i can stop it is to click on the address a second time and reload page. its really annoying
Thats a fair comment,thought id just overlooked some way of bypassing it,as ive never had one of these ads that takes over the whole page on this site before. Thanks for taking the time to view and comment.
'Most forums'don't have anything like the content and/or traffic that we have, and they don't cost anywhere near the amount of money that we have to spend each year just to keep the site going.
We don't set out to make advertising intrusive, but if it seems to be the case we try to do something about it. Sniping at us - as you seem to want to do every time you get an opportunity - isn't really going to achieve anything.
Most forums do not have the traffic and/or content,I beg to differ. As for snipping at every opportunity, there are/have been enough separate posts concerning the various intrusive adverts over the past weeks/months yet it seems to take an inordinate amount of time to rectify the problems. Surely ads are checked before going live? Whereas I am reasonably computer literate and able to block these bloody ads others may not be able to.I am still working on blocking them on my ipad2 but surely blocking defeats the object of having ads in the first place?
Differ as much as you like,but it's a fact. Our site is ranked the seventh most popular magazine site in the world for UK traffic,and is the World's Number One Technology Magazine Website for UK Audience.
There's no need to use swear words by the way - you can make a point without descending to that.

I am not an absolute beginner and yet it took me a long time to get passed the MS advert and finally had to revert to an adblocker to overcome the MS abuse of your forum.I do not know how many other adverts that I have blocked because of this seemingly abuse of power, but I do hope that they (MS) have apologised and compensated you for (if any) down turn in advert revenue
