Block them...

With XP open IE page, navigate tools/internet options / privacy/ sites.

Tick pop-up blocker.

Works most of the time.

If you want to see the pop-up then hold Ctrl key when opening.

Very annoying I agree but in all fairness advertising is one of the main ways the site is funded.

Without those it would more than likely cost you to advertise with them.

As Rooster21 says, block them and you shouldn't get a problem... AND you get to advertise for free

mmm, i have the pop-up blocker enabled but it still gets through, i agree that some advertising is always necessary but recently you get a lot of adverts which are of no relevance and they seem to be growing in number.
A few years ago i would go on to B+O everyday to see if there's any decent stuff going, recently though i don't bother as much simply because of all the ad's.

We have just pulled all of our advertising from the site for this very reason. The web site is running slower and slower and I am sure people looking to purchase a Rib are not interested in buying riding lessons or a new kitchen.

I used to advertise with them when Phil owned and ran it, i would have an advertising console that cost me about 25 a month, this was great and the site seem to be alot more efficient back then, it loaded everytime and not too many ads.... different story now.

I've noticed it's painfully slow too-and that popup comes up as a blank screen for me. I don't look there as often now because of it either.
