    Default This %^$#&^%&^&^!!!

    You have that stuck in your machine some place. Try a different browser. No one else is having a problem.

    I've loaded 4 different browsers and hit it just fine on each.

    Nah...It's just another one of the problems that pop up when using Internet explorer and viewing this forum. Plenty of people have had strange problems. The answer seems to be...if you want to use internet explorer, you take what you can get here, or move on to another forum.

    Funny, that other forums don't seem to have a problem with I.E.

    In the computer section, of a big box store...

    2dumb- I need a new 'puter.
    Salesperson-O.K. What do you need it to do?
    2dumb- I need it to go to the guns and ammo section of the wilderness survival forum, on the internet.
    Salesperson- Well, any computer with internet access will do that.
    2dumb- Not true. I have one at home, that will go anywhere on the world wide web, except the guns and ammo section of the wilderness survival forum.

    I'd offer my technical expertise on the matter, but sadly it is lacking.

    2D - Go get a copy of CCCleaner. It's free. Then get a free copy of Ad Aware. Make certain your virus definitions are updated, too.

    CCCleaner:

    http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

    Ad Aware:

    http://www.lavasoft.com/

    Run them and see if they will get rid of the problem. I agree with Welderguy (mark that on your calendar, WG). You probably are being misdirected. It's like starting out for New York and winding up in L.A. Well, actually it's nothing like that but you know what I mean.

    It does sound like spyware of some sort.

    What precise browser version are you using?

    Actually no.

    So...

    http://www.greenbaypressgazette.com/...nclick_check=1

    The site that was advertising went out of business, and a quirk/bug/defect in your browser caused the iframes showing the ads to expand to cover the entire screen when it couldn't load the ads. Nice. I think I had an old ammo order with those guys too. I'm unsure if they ever fully shipped it to me. I had ordered guns from them too, but after a month of not shipping it I cancelled, they had a habit of listing things as in stock when they weren't. They never in the end paid for the ads either.

    So I removed the ads and fixed things.

    I'm cured!
    Thanks, Chris.

    (And I have no idea what browser I have, other than some version of I.E.)LOL
