Anyone got an idea why I get pop-ups on the PC Advisor sit? Only ever happens on this site..Popups are blocked on all else by software I have.

Maybe updating your Host file may help.

Thanks for your replies. I've e-mailed the forum editor and am looking through the other suggestions.

I doubt the Forum Editor will be keen to advise you how to block the pop-ups, as they are what would pay his wage if he only got one!

Remember, it's these ads that pay for this forum. Some ads are so hideous and obtrusive I, too, would rush out for a blocker. However, the occasional click will keep the website up and running, and allow the FE to replace his Aston Martin with a Bugatti Veyron all the sooner!

Anyway, don't always block ALL ads! Keep those 1/100ths of a penny rolling in!

Are these the ones activated when you pass your cursor over the green highlighted words?

HI Guys,

I'd not tested the 'green highlghted words' but yes they seems to be the ones..something called vibrant pops up with adverts...not necessarily related to the 'green word'. As I tend to go quite quickly across the screen I'd not noticed that I was passing over the 'green words'.

so problem solved...

Thanks again
