    I'm having a bizarre problem: If I click on a link to a forum or thread, I get a small graphic/advertisement in the upper left corner of my browser. I have to refresh 10 or 20 times, cycling through multiple graphics before the thread comes up correctly.
    What am I doing wrong? [​IMG]

    have you checked your pc for spyware/adware lately? Software that installs (often covertly), they can display ads (as well as other things).
    grab adaware from here http://www.lavasoftusa.com/ to clean your pc.

    I've got Norton Internet security, but these are not ads from somewhere else. These are graphics about home theater products from this site, and they only appear on the one browser that I have open. It only happens here. Weird.

    See the AV Mall ad at the top left of this page? That is exactly what I see. When I click a thread, the next page that comes up is totally blank, with an AV mall/SVS/ect.. graphic in the top left corner.

    I am not sure what to tell you what is going on with our site and your browser. We don't have any type of pop advertising or anything along those lines. I would still try downloading adware (it is free) and see if it finds something.

    John, what version of Norton Internet Security are you using? The 2001 version had some issues with the ad blocking feature. When I had that version I had similar issues. After upgrading to the 2002 version the problems went away.

    Alternatively, if you disable ad blocking for hometheaterforum.com problem will also go away.
