Thanx so much, that Pop-up even managed to get through my pop up blocker some how. but it would never come through all the way, only have the image.... anyways glad to see it's being delt with.

It's like red red wine... stay close to me [tom] These ads only stopped me from voting on stuff rather than stop me from being able to watch videos... sucky

Was it that aol one with the big thing that came down from the ad itself? Jesus why would anyone want an aol isp if they're using ng?? Let's make plenty of anti-aol topics here so they get the message.

But if that wasn't the ad, what was?

Yes, I do as well. Maybe it will take the company a day or two to take them down.

Hopefully this is referring to that God-awful "Sky Captin" movie advertisement. That add makes me hate the movie... not want to go see it.

I haven't personally seen that particular ad. Maybe you don't get it in Cornwall...

And the point of that was???

Anyway, I still get the green 'games' thing which ends up closing down my internet explorer, and there's also one which sells phones. I'm sure pop-up blockers can stop these though can't they?

P.S Thank-you Tom for removing all the crud from the site.

they are probably flash on a dhtml layer which don't need a javascript to pop open so they aren't actually pop-ups , just windows made in flash and placed in a layer over the top ov the actual html.
