Little yellow splodge with red surround

  Andsome 07:43 06 Nov 2003

When logging onto this site today, the hand which replaces the pointer, when hovered over words has a little yellow splodge on it with a red line round it. This is not happening on any other site, and only happens as I log on Any explanations anyone.

The same happens on my internet pc at work which is running zone alarm and mcaffee anti virus. I think it is a popup blocker showing you it's blocking popups. hope this helps.

I use XP Home and Norton AV 2003, plus Norton Personal Firewall 2003. The Norton pop up stopper has never shown this splodge before today, at least I have never noticed it.

I first noticed it yesterday after installing a new proxy server and NortonAV 2004.

Its a PCA advert

If this is so, it's a funny advert, what is it supposed to mean or do? This is NOT showing on any other website

you know its an advert as when you log in(delete all cookies) the screen goes larger, you hear a kncking noise and then when you click login a new screen opens with the forum

I can't follow what you are telling me. I hear no noises at all,( except of course the usual voices).

well i hear a knocking noise that is coming from the advert mate

Maybe your spooks don't talk to you, they just knock. I've tried turning up the volume with no effect. How are you supposed to view this wonderful knocking advert after you see the yellow spluge with the red line round it?
