It's on the side bar of this page, at the top... for me now...

yesterday it was at the top everytime I came on...

maybe I am being haunted?

Well....I probably deserve it!

I wouldn't go so far as to say get a Mac, I'm a PC girl myself. But I would suggest Firefox with NoScript. No adds, no keyloggers, all surfing joy!

I didn't even know 3FC *had* ads until someone complained about them.

Most of the time the ads at the top or on the side don't bother me much at all....it's just that I bet I "rolled" over that Kohl's one a dozen times yesterday...which made it JUMP out...

guess at 55 my mouse technique is lacking....

lol... that's why I use AdBlock in Firefox, I never see any of the ads at the top or side of web pages. :D I actually forgot that this site even had them!

In the past, I would I always ended up mousing over the wrong thing, too... obnoxious!

Gary - I am far younger than you ;) and the ads bug me too. The ones that pop make me crazy. Way too distracting.

Gary... I may be way off, but do you have pop up blocker on or off ?
Mine is 'on' and I don't see the Kohl's ad (could be related ?)... try looking at your browser's tool bar for 'tools' then 'pop up'... should see an option off/on... I'm no techie... but it might help to look... good luck...

Ok I figured it out and it says pop ups are blocked....

these are ads along the top and down the side....

when I rolled the mouse over the kohl's ad yesterday it got bigger...

the ones today are not doing it.

I have the ad blocking, but on some sites I go do those giant scrolling ads when my mouse accidentally goes over them is beyond irritating lol. There is this once site I go to and I'm constantly having to be like a ninja with my mouse so I won't activate the stupid ad. lol

Haven't seen the khol's ad though...

There's pop-up blocking, and then there's ad blocking (not all ads are pop-ups). I'm not sure what options IE has as I use Firefox. I have no ads along the top and side.

I think I just have the pop-up blocker then. I have ads on the sides, banner ads and such.
