The right half of each page is obscured by an advert it is impossible to close. (Windows 10, Chrome)

If it's the video ad have a look at this post .

just to echo Gordon Freeman from the other posting. I use opera browser in its default settings and see nothing popping up on any of the Tech Advisor pages.

On an iPhone with Adblock and Safari it is ok

Mr G: Technically, Banners are actually Adverts at the top and bottom of the Screen, not at the sides but, never-the-less, you may be right about Kaspersky's use of the word

Thanks all.

At least I know it's pretty general.

If IDG don't already know it I'm sure the FE will rectify that!

Hi. Can you explain more about this ad, please?

There is a video player in the bottom righthand corner but this is closable. And it certainly wouldn't cover up half the page.

We removed page skins and some other ad units recebtly, so there should actually be a lot less disruptive elements on the page.

I've said it before morddwyd, you would get a faster response if you emailed me direct when you have a problem with the site.

I haven't seen what you're seeing, so a bit more detail will be helpful.

Can't say I've seen this and also the pop up video bottom right has stopped appearing the last week.

Like geoff96 I also use Opera and its own built in adblocker and suffer few problems apart from a couple of the newspaper sites which protest about it.

I am experiencing the same on my iPhone the video takes up the bottom 25% of the screen with no way of closing it currently a video for Opo phone

With exactly the same setup I do not see the same problem on my iPad
