Whats with the ads??

Postby shadow » Sat Dec 20, 2008 12:06 pm

What is with all the underlined ads in forum posts and responses I have noticed lately?
It seems that certain words are highlighted and an ad is generated directing you to a different site.
Am I the only one who is noticing this?? Is there a way to shut off something on my system that will not show this??

It's probably how they operate the site.

Well, after reading the last two responses I finally thought to look at my computer.
I just found and deleted an ad program that had somehow got into my system, the name of the company or program that was in there was Game Vance, it seems to have been a gambling site of some type, and certain words that were typed in had been underlined, and when you placed the mouse cursor on that word the Game Vance logo would pop-up, you can then be directed to another site assosiated with that word.
No one here gambles so I don't know how it got downloaded. Thanks for getting me to realize that the D&DH website was not being sold out for extra advertisement revenue.

I think you have some adware in your system. I don't see it.

Adware is terrible.  My new computer tells you if the site is free from viruses.  Adware gets into your hard drive and if you're computer challenged like myself you need someone to remove it or it keeps coming back.  My old one was full of it due to my kids downloading music.  I thought you ment the ads on the right side of the screen.
