    LOUD Very ANNOYING Advertising in Forums

    I just started reading the forums today and on three different posts, heard VERY loud advertising! What is this? I clicked NO links and was just reading posts when this occured. Is this something new? Because if it is, I do NOT want to hear ads when reading the forums.

    I've never heard one the whole time I have been here.

    I had one start playing earlier today. It popped up out of nowhere and was LOUD.

    never had that problem so far... REALLY HOPE I DONT! I love this site, and i HATE that stuff. Hopefully its just malware and not the website.

    That sounds more like a problem on the users computer. Malware that is embedded in your software and when you come here it pings it to pop up. Seriously I have not had a pop up in about 4 years.

    I would recommend downloading some anti-malware programs and scanning your computer. I will not suggest any to you because I refuse to be liable for anything you mess up on your computer. I will however tell you what I use. All free. :)

    Panda Cloud Antivirus. (Runs 24/7 in the background, monitoring)
    Ad-aware by lavasoft (Cleans cookies, caches, and temp files)
    Spybot - Search and destroy (searches every file on your computer, including the registry.)

    Firefox does a good job with popups and annoying ads.

    I've not heard any audio ads on DC using IE8.
