  • QUESTION: Is it just my computer, or are any of you fellows getting these pop-up ads, complete with voices, on your screens while on the NTC site? This has just started happening in the last two days. A 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 ad will appear in the lower right of the screen, and then when I click to one of the other topic lines in the heading, a full page ad will appear blocking the entire topic. Just wonder what's this all about. Guess if none of the others are getting these, I need to have my geek tech out to check this PC.

  • I use the AdBlock extension with Chrome to stop that stuff.

  • Go to INTERNET OPTIONS -my IE browser uses a gear-like icon for Internet Tools in the upper RH top menu bar. Open it, go to the PRIVACY settings, and scroll down. There should be a box for Pop-Up Blockers. Is it checked? If not check it off and apply the change.

  • Thanks much brother, I'll try that as well. Right now as I type this message, there is an ad appearing in the lower right square of this screen and it is blaring with a message, which of course I can block the voice part by by clicking off the sound altogether.

  • Checked on my computer but still get audio for short periods on some sites, e.g., Fox News, but not on NTC.

    It's a never ending battle between the add developers and the browser developers.

  • I'm glad to say I don't get any either, because with all the political ads on TV that's quite enough.

  • I have "Ad Remover" installed. I don't get pop ups no matter where I go.

  • Not me. You need to adjust your settings on your browser.
