PC Advisor ticker (CISCO)

  provider 2 15:52 23 Nov 2009

Any ideas on how to block this new masthead ticker?

It`s sending my firefox.exe usage to 98%

I use firefox with windows 7. No Problem

I`ve found two Cisco/ticker items in Adblock Plus and blocked both of them but to no effect.

The only way to stop the ticker seems to be to point the cursor at it, whereupon the CPU usage drops to zero.

Uses about 15% on mine. If you put your cursor over it it pauses and usage drops to zero again.

I use Flock that uses Firefox Engine, but don't know what you mean by ticker. I don't get pop-ups

PS I also use Host file thats stops these Adds

I`ve just tried IE 8 and it`s much the same.

iexplore.exe running at 97% when the text is scrolling across the page.

It seems to be for about the last fortnight they seem to be making one mistake after another.Time that they got their act together and put things right.
Complaining does not seem to help.

Why not do what I do instead of complaining. I don't get any of it

Normally the EasyList subscription filter in Adblock Plus stops most things but it`s having a problem with this one.

I wouldn`t bother but such high CPU usage is slowing my system to a crawl.

Yes just turned Scripting off and its gone
