    Turn off ad videos ?

    Not sure when this started happening but if I'm in a particular forum the soundtrack for a ad video starts playing. Not too much of a problem for me as I just turn the sound off but it is annoying. I couldn't find any parameter in Settings to disable sounds from ads.

    That just started happening to me as well over the last couple days. Never before. Not sure why?
    Only when I'm on the TW200forum.com.

    Had the same problem. Dryden-TDub (aka. "Saint Thomas") recommended that I install AdBlock Plus. I did and no more annoying soundtracks to ads. ADBLOCK

    AdBlock worked great. Thanx. The ads were very annoying!

    If an auto-playing ad is coming through, something has gone wrong on our end. I can track it down, but I need some details.

    Your rough geographic location, a screenshot of the ad, and the link that it would take you to. (right click, open link, copy what you find)

    It was not a video. Audio only. Charter Spectrum Missoula, MT.

    Just happened to me while I was reading a post. I have AdBlocker so don't see the ads, but I heard a Allstate commercial playing while on the thread.

    You can turn off some unwanted stuff in the chrome browser settings.

    Three little dots top right, then down to settings,
    Then on the left choose extensions then delete or disable unwanted extras.
    May or may not help you, most likely you browser is infected with adware.
    I can recommend Malware-bytes.
    its an ongoing battle for me also.

    Best of luck

    Dave.

    No video or pictures. Just audio (music or sales pitch) in the background.
    New York City or the 'burbs nearby. Just a ways down the road from Missoula, MT

    Started happening just a few days ago. I use a MacBook Pro so no Chrome.
