PC Advisor Popup

  [DELETED] 18:04 04 Nov 2003

I have just visited the PCA Site to view the forums, I managed to stop ZoneAlarm somehow (by mistake), what is with the awful popup for the AMD64 Athlon, its dreadful the way it hijacks your browser. Granted the browser buttons are still there & the address bar, but it got rid of my Google search bar etc etc.

Just thought I would post my opinion.

We know.

And it shocked me to see a advert like that.

Anyway, not to bother!!!! Blocked in my advert blocker.

There has been quite a few posts on it too.

I have the new google search toolbar installed and it includes an add blocker so I have never seen any pop up adds on this site since I installed it, so I am glad to say I dont know what add you mean :-)

Thanks! I didn't know that the toolbar contained an ad-blocker! I've just installed it and its blocked 2 ads on this site already, i don't mind ads on the page itself but pop-ups really bug me!
