    I've never heard it either.. But I keep flash disabled by default on my browser. So that is probably why.

    It happened to me for the first time last night. VERY annoying. Bottom left hand of screen, embedded in the forum. I'm all for silent adds that you have to click on for sound if you want to watch them but instant, loud ads on website are just .. RUDE!

    Some of us access this forum from places where we expect a little quiet or privacy.. having a blaring ad start can really put a damper on wanting to come back to a particular website. I hope this is rectified quickly.

    I had it happen on Firefox & Google Chrome so far. Have not tried Internet Exploder.

    I am running MalwareBytes anti-malware software to scan on my home PC while I am off at work today. Tonight I will do an update on Spybot & Norton & will run a full scan on both of them as well. Will update if anything changes on my end. It seems like aflash-based adware program may have ended up dumped on the server. Since the folks that disable flash are not having to deal with I would not doubt that is the issue. A good scan of the server HD will likely root it out.

    Yes, it is annoying. I may or may not leave, but if the site is going to go commercial, I certainly do not see any reason to continue to give my $$ as a "Contributing Member".

    You have malware... scan and clean your PC

    run THIS first:

    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic308364.html

    Then download this

    http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free

    and

    http://www.combofix.org/

    Update and scan

    Also run an anti malware or virus software like avast, avg, or avira and for god sakes STOP using Internet Exploder and download firefox and install the adblock plugin.

    Problems solved. I have NEVER heard an ad on this site. But I take safeguards and countermeasure to prevent malware and scumware from getting on my PC.

    I use the extension ABP that halts 98% of pop-up ads. Use it on both Firefox and Google Chrome. A wonderful and free cure for pop-ups and does its thing on Drudge Report and many other frequently visited sites.

    Its NOT Malware or any type of infection or hijack
    Its NOT been here before (so we all never had it happen before)
    It is Very ANNOYING!!
    YES, we could each block it (by why should we have to!!)

    +1 for adblock. It is the greatest add-on ever.

    I've been on here all morning, and have not heard one of the annoying drive everyone away adds since about 10. I'm holding out hope that it was temporary lapse of judgment, malware of some sort or a plain old mistake.

    I had one go off for the first time this am. It was in the Sponsors pane just above the Thread Information below... I just clicked on the speaker ICON to mute it, and I haven't heard anything since...
