So far it hasn't annoyed me that much or caused any real problems, just a minor inconvenience here.
What ads? I use Firefox and have no ads or issues with the site.

What ads? This site has ads? Never seen any ads!
Darn, don't know what I'm missing.
Seriously.
What can I do to get some ads? Maybe I need to buy something!

That reminds me. I need to buy an RV so I can have some repair problems.
I have the tools and the knowledge, and nothing to do but post.

Is that Edd505 up there? Been researching the trucks GK, thanks to you.

Wow. What a difference. I just installed an ad blocker for safari on my Mac and my speeds have drastically increased on the site. OP, try instilling an ad blocker...

Edit... The one I installed actually has a counter that tells you how many ads it stopped. Every page load it stops about 8 ads. Very impressed.

Have you rebooted your computer recently. I usually only reboot once a week. Been known to reboot a few.times in a row, if it.continously to act up.

In Firefox, if you go into Task Manager, sort by CPU use, find the Flash process, and kill it (end the Firefox task), things will start working again... that is until Flash starts again. If you exit and restart Firefox frequently, that also helps.
I'm pretty sure that's right.

It's not popups, it's actually ads IN the page, and the static ones are not a problem, it's only the ones with video. It got worse after the changeover, probably because of more dynamic advertising.

I actually don't mind the ads as long as they're the static ones. I've gotten used to ignoring them for the most part, but when they start playing sound and videos, I get annoyed.

For Firefox users: I just installed "Ad Blocker Plus 2.7". It's an add on to Firefox from Mozilla. So far so good. Granted, it's only been a few minutes, but I've visited several places in the forum and have no ads, not even the static ones.

X2 on what THEY said! Last night I installed free 'Adblock Plus' all is good with Firefox.

I had a two free ad blockers I used for years with Win 7, but at some point (8.1 upgrade?) they were no longer supported and stopped working. I didn't 'connect the dots' to my Firefox issues and that upgrade.

I use Chrome. No ads from this site, great performance.

Regarding Flash, Adobe Acrobat Reader, and Java. These are malware magnets. Get rid of all of them. Most malware is written to exploit security holes in each of these 3rd party programs. That goes for MAC as well.

Unless you are addicted to YouTube, few sites rely on Flash anymore, it's a dead technology. Most sites are now built using HTML 5 which only requires a modern browser and no special ad-ons.

Instead of Acrobat Reader use a free alternative reader like PDF Xchange Viewer.

Java simply isn't needed anymore. I haven't had it my home machine for about 3 years. We took it off the company PCs 2 years ago.
