The AMD ad that takes control of the top of Internet Explorer is REALLY annoying! When it first popped up I thought it was a virus or spyware and immediately shut Explorer down. The second time it took me a moment to figure out that my back button was still there.
As the Forum Editor says - advertising pays for this site etc.... the ad is annoying, but extremely effective and much more difficult to ignore compared to pop ups, pop unders etc. I expect most of us remember the product being advertised.
It was the first time I've seen such internet advertising and through various threads it's interesting to see how paranoid we all are about viruses that several people had exactly the same reaction and immediately closed their browsers.
