Once we have clicked "close" on the Canon

Popup ad can it remain closed please.

When it pops up I click on Close but it pops up again about 5 minutes later.

It's just doing its job. Bear in mind that although you might find it a little irritating it has a limited life-span, and will be gone soon.

try a simple "page refresh" and see what that does for you:)

Don't mind ads except this one is on top of thread headings, could be positioned more conveniently...

  pj123 16:15 14 Dec 2005

FE I don't mind the Ads at all, otherwise I assume this site wouldn't be in existence. But as Pidder says this one seems to be more intrusive than others.

FE I realise and appreciate that this website is free mainly due to the advertising but I too find this pop up rather intrusive. I also appreciate that this is as you say a time limited thing but have the flood gates been opened? This is my concern. Will this be happening for evermore albeit with different adverts? Are there going to be more of them or is this a one off?

Think 'paying subscriptions' and the pop-ups seem less of a 'burden'. Using Avant browser I only get the Canon one on the odd occasion. Better still try clicking on them to help the site as it is better than £1/minute helplines.

I only get it once in a while, in fact haven't had it all day. Using just IE.

I'm with Gandalf on this one.

Haven't seen the Canon ad for a while now, possibly ended its run?

canon advert is still here but as you say they pay for the forum so from now on i will click on them if it helps out paying for the forum.
It can be annoying but i would rather click on the X than pay to register on the site.
