get rid of the BS ads that take over my screen and computer

or give me the option to go around.

These ads SUCK

I have no issue with trying to make a profit, but when they prevent me from accessing sections and threads, I will be gone and those ads will reach one less person.......do it right or this site will be very silent

What ads are you talking about? What are they vending?

There is only one ad on TFL, and that is a static ad for SWAT magazine.

If you are seeing any other ads, then you have something on your computer, because they are not being pushed by TFL.

Sounds like you have bigger issues than this forum. There are really no ads here..so if you're seeing them, it may be time to clean the viruses out of your computer.

Big D, my friend, your problems aren't TFL related.
Perhaps your computer's spring cleaning should come early.
Does your browser have a "block pop-ups" option?
Good Luck.

run a complete virus scan and also delete the cookies
spybot search and destroy is a good one, as well as Norton's. I am totally pleased with Norton 360

Now that we've established the problem isn't TFL, it's safe to close this.
