Advertising at its finest again. Do your best to ignore it but these top ad locations are horrid.

Two words... <span style="color: #FFCC00"><span style="font-weight: bold">Adblock Plus</span></span>. I haven't seen an ad on here since I loaded it last week!

Re: view new messages

I can tolerate the ad at the top of the page. However, I have two spaces that pop up on my main pc screen and you can not move or delete them. They come on the screen so fast that I can not even log in to HPA as they block the area They are liked fixed there permanently except for my hot mail and facebook websites.

Only way I can view a full screen is on my laptop.

Anyone know how I can remove them?

Sounds like something a touch malicious. I would recommend running a "C" Drive or system scan with your AntiVirus. Adaware and Malware Bytes are also nice to find and block crap too.

Many are on a mission to not accidentally click on pop up ads, potential malware, or spam when checking private messages as well.
