    Has my computer been spammed, or is everybody getting all the Jessica Simpson crap in the advertising. I do not like it and want it to go away. Some new video website (ZANGO)..its all a bunch of crud that our young audience does not need to see here. Jessiac Simpson, Shakira ?, Jessica Alba, Christina Ricci, Mate 1 Intimate Dating...This stuff need's to go.

    Underneath the Home, Recent, Help, Search buttons and above the Reply, Notify, Mark Unread buttons is an ad right now titled as Shakira in a bikini, Before she was famous, Click here. On the bottom of my screen is an ad from Sportsman Choice. I want the top ad to go away...I can live with the bottom one.

    Right now it's Muzzy and a credit report ad. Doesn't make sense.
     
  9. Maybe it pops up advertising according to what you like. For most of us its Hillbilly rifles and rhino truck liners. Might want to be careful what other sites your frequenting.

    No, I don't think that's it Pirate. I've never been to the sites that are popping up on mine. It should be whatever Ken has it linked to.

    Murph, I think you got a spy in your computer. I found a free download called Ad Aware by Lavasoft, it is free and it sweeps my computer and collects all the crap like you got and it quarenteens them, theninto the trash they go. Simple to use.
     
  12. I was just joking but that technology does exist. I'm sure they aren't using it here.

    Hey, I've got two sons (19 & 24) that frequent my computer. Each has their own, but mine sits on one end of the dining table and is online all the time. Who knows where they go...I'm not gonna waste my time asking!!!!

    Mr T...you saved the day...I downloaded the Ad Aware program, ran it and cleaned up a bunch of crud. Thanks for that information. Now the ad is for SignatureFishingRods.com ...that's much better.

  19. There has been a lot of posting of photos that are not appropriate for this site. My wife teaches 7 and 8 Grade science and English classes and research for the boys that has used this site for reference. The boy do a great job doing research and writing from things they have learned from this site. So with that in mind the soft porn of some post.

    Its not possible to block out certain post. So with that in mindthe school now wants to block taxidermyforums do to soft porn.

    Very inappropriate for this site

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    AVG 7.5 has a great anti-spyware program on it. It's also the very best program out there to protect your computer. You can pay big bucks for McAfee or Norton or some of the others, but they don't hold a candle to AVG which gets updated daily. Best of all, AVG is FREE!!!
