I've had the Square Google ad overlap the Recent Discussions section a couple of times in the past, but not recently. I don't use Ad Blocker since I'd feel like a hypocrite - I have ads on my web page that pay for it...

The latest version of Safari (on a Mac) uses "Power Saver" for the ad above recent discussions, so any video ads come up as blanks until you click on them.

I have been having this problem. That big, square, right side pop-up above recent discussions had started dominating to the point of great irritation. Has been freezing every forum page/post/thread until its pop up finishes loading. Yesterday it briefly went ballistic; the pop up now remained in foreground, blocking the page images and text I wanted to see. Then it kept running its audio over and over. Incredible.

I'm running IE in Win7. Could find no evidence in my browser or Win7 programs of a Java to turn off. A search for a download of AdBlock that worked proved futile, mainly a bunch of reviews, -- nothing for IE.

Finally found a solution. In IE I clicked on IE "Tools" - Popup Blocker -settings - "change blocking level to high." That seems to be working. Now, the contents of the square opens but remains frozen--no audio no video.

What a relief it is.

I believe even Microsoft has given up on Explorer.
Why don't you switch to Firefox or some browser that works?

Giving that serious thought. I heard Microsoft has plans to dump IE for something new currently in the works, I forget what they're calling it.

Myron, the problem with IE as well as any browser that Microsoft develops to replace it, is their insistence on a tight integration with the OS. As an IT Engineer I highly recommend Google Chrome to anyone who will listen. Light, fast, and more secure. Its also easy to go incognito or block ads.
