AMD Advert and Internet Explorer window size

  Peter 14:30 07 Nov 2003

I don't know if it's just me, but since this AMD advert has inhabited the top of the Internet Explorer window, the windows size keeps being altered. It's very annoying!

I don't mind adverts too much, but if I set my window size as I like it I don't think someone else should alter it.

Is this happening to other readers/forum members?

What AMD advert??

Presume my Google toolbar pop-up blocker must be killing it - yet another win for Google?

This AMD thing is really annoying me, but at least it will now close when I tell it even if it does close my Links toolbar ;-( (and if I log in reallly quickly, it doesn't come up at all!)

The only time I had it the ad minimised the IE window - all I had to do was maximise it and the ad has since (hopefully) bit the dust.

Google toolbar pop-up blocker is killing it:)

Why not download and use Netscape at least until the add as gone away

I'll tick this one as resolved. I just wanted to check that it wasn't just me.
