Default Unusable threads

Using Vista from home, I cannot reply to thread Subwoofer box rattle issue
because the ads keep changing and making the page scroll back to top, then after many ads I get some Java messages. I'd donate, but can't afford to yet. But some threads are just unusable as the big center ad keeps changing quickly, other threads work OK. You'd think there was a stuck button, but in the software not the hardware LOL.

Hi cyclecamper, I'd upgrade to a newer version of ie (7 was one of the worst from memory) or even better change to firefox or chrome You may also consider upgrading your version of flash player if it isn't the newest.

IE8 is the current Microsoft browser and there are known issues with IE7 relating to security flaws and compatibility with the latest web standards. Microsoft recommends upgrading - this may solve your issue.

I use Firefox on Windows 7, Linux and Windows XP and it performs consistently and has lots of useful add ons not found in IE..

Amen.

Last virus I got I was searching for fire brick mortar fer gossakes. Had to take box down to new system to get rid of it. Changed to Firefox, do a windows update about once a month and don't even need to run a virus checker. Clean for over a year now. Oh, also run noscript on firefox. A pain to train which sites you want to allow but then no annoying flash banners. Watch any you want with just a click.

On theother hand, the problem only occurs with the one particular ad on that one particular thread...it just keeps scrolling. I suspect a problem w/ the ad.

A combination of things, one greatest prevalence. The majority of the malware writers go for it. Second, this is made easy by the propensity Micro$oft has for leaving holes that they can get in themselves. I'd say at least 50% of the security updates you get from Micro$oft are aimed at plugging holes (security vulnerabilities) in IE that they put there probably on purpose.

OK on purpose. But what's the purpose? Just to later create security updates?
