Feeling queasy

I have been spending a few minutes glancing through Speakers' Corner and started to feel queasy. I have just realised it is the moving graphics for Eset that is causing it. Is there a way to turn it off?

It is the same sensation I got when trying first person games; it seems to be a form of motion sickness.

tools button/ content tab/ uncheck enable java script

Thank you. I use IE8. It is getting a bit late, but I shall have a look at the java settings in the morning and see what I can do.

have looked into IE 8 tools/ internet options /Advanced/scroll down to multimedia uncheck play animations then restart your browser seems to be the way to go with that one

Devil Fish - thank you for your help with this, but sadly it did not seem to work. It is less of a problem this morning as I am not getting the same adverts regularly - they seem to come and go.

However, it does seem possible to temporarily disable them by right clicking on the side adverts and unticking Play. This only works for the current screen. For a more permanent solution, I had some success via Tools>Internet Options>Security and disabled scripting.

In more general terms, whilst I do not like static, intrusive adverts on this site, I tolerate them and understand the need for them. It is more of an issue for me (amd maybe others too) when motion is involved. I was very poorly last night by the time I logged off.

Try taking a travel pill, or maybe wearing those travel armbands from Boots the chemist.

Try this and it should make it go away.
it leaves a little icon on the status bar.

Thank you, I will give it a try. It seems easy to enable/disable it which allows me to enter into the spirit of the forum to block adverts sparingly.

I shall tick as resolved. Thanks everyone.

Yes, I know I did because I reversed the process when I adopted buteman's suggestion. Thank you anyway because it pointed to where I can look for other tweaks to overcome future irritants.

They're a damn nuisance when you've got a touch screen!

Difficult to find an area to touch without triggering them.

They'll be recording plenty of PCA hits from me.

Not a moan about ads, just a comment!
