    Ads Playing in Background?

    Anybody "hearing" ads playing when on the forum? I've been hearing different ads playing but no ads are seen.

    Kill off enough members and you're bound to have a few ghosts show up.

    When I go to any topic tab, not on individual posts. One was a Geico ad, not sure about the others. Sometimes the audio is skipping. Hasn't done it yet today. Running Norton 360. Scans don't show anything.

    It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.

    have you sorted this out?

    regardless, if its just auto playing video ads. you can turn off video ads and set them to "click to play" on the back end of your browser. if you let me know what your browser is, i can guide you through how to do it. let me know.
