I got that too when I first joined and made the mistake of loading the "SPECIAL" stuff - IMO don't do it!!! Loaded a bunch of garbage - thankfully not malware - that impacted my machines performance and took me a while to find and get rid of. To make matters worse, there wasn't a message...

Are you referring to the ad banner at the top of most pages? If you have a legitimate notification, it will show up at the very top of the page where it says

Welcome>user_name>Notifications>My Profile>Settings>Register>Log Out

The ad banner on mine right now has an envelope with an red exclamation and a big box that says "Urgent Message". This is not part of the site's messaging and is in fact an advertisement for something that will likely infect your computer to its very core with something you don't want or need.

If you haven't already load ADblocker to your internet browser. It's free and works great.

That`s an annoying ad that has been discussed by staff here. It looks like its part of the forum and suggests you need to click on it to view PM`s. Its NOT part of the forum!

It is annoying and almost fooled me once. Thanks for reminding me of Adblocker. Put it on my new notebook and it's not distracting anymore.

It's very annoying and did fool me once. A bigger issue than the annoyance is living in a society where deception and trickery is considered good business.

I have been using AdBlocker Plus for several years. Ads are virtually non-existent. I also have pop-ups blocked. I also use NoScript which prevents sites from running any scripts unless you specifically approve it or white list the site.

Crabman, ads can be blocked from showing from an option in the Adsense user control panel. I block certain ads from showing on my websites. Maybe whoever controls the Adsense account could do this for the forum, before too many people install adblocker.
