    There is an ad for a furniture store here in San Diego called Jeromes and the audio keeps going and going and the only way to stop it is to close out of explorer and sign back in.  The ad itself does not populate the screen other than the banner at the top and bottom but the audio just starts up at random and keeps going -

    I don't think it's this site, it may be your internet provider.

    It has to be this site - it is a Huddler banner ad for the store and it does not happen anywhere else I go on the net
     
     
  5. It knows your location based on your IP address so it targets you with local ads. I haven't seen it on this site where I am but on other sites I get hit with ads in the Dallas, TX area even though I'm in NC. I am on my company network which is based in Arlington, TX. When I'm at home I get NC ads sometimes. The only ads I've seen on here besides the featured business card ones are PSAs by Google.

    Its prob related to the google adds that are running which use the tracking cookies that you browser has collected to push certain ads towards you for your intrest/area.

    Most porn sites dont give your computers tracking cookies. They give them Viruses. [​IMG]

  14. You might want to look in to downloading one of the many host files available on the net to block all the ad sites, etc.  They simply redirect the sites to the local port on the PC.
     

  15. There's your problem, EXPLORER!  Try another browser Firefox, opera.....

    I'm also having wierd things happen, but not the same as Scar. When i click on SMF from my FAVORITES not only does SMF open, but I get a credit add too? I have pop-up blocker on & this is the only site that has been doing that?
