Noticed that this morning.

AdBlock Plus to the rescue.

I don't see any ads.

Do you know about HOSTS file modifying?

Aye, had to edit the hosts file a few times to stop Adobe calling home etc.

I was looking at the site this morning thinking have those ads always been there. First time I'd seen them.

Yep, definitely very helpful James. I hadn't heard of HOSTS file modification before.

Done and dusted now and ad-free .. nice one. Good call.

Hi All
I followed the instructions & the ads went. Now each page takes ages (up to a minute to load. Is this common ?
I think i would rather bear with the ads. Any suggestions?
