Default Ads lock up PC.

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone else have any of the advertisements here freeze up your PC for 30 seconds to a minute ?

A lot of times I will go from one section like BB 8100 to another section and the bottom of the screen will be a long URL and end with something like "ad.php" and my entire PC will freeze for about a minute then it will take me where I wanted. Its totally unusable. It also says something like "external_marketing" in the URL.

It seems to be getting worse every week and its only when I use this forum. All my other boards work fine.

Not sure what to tell you. Thousands of other users dont seem to be having the same problem.

The ads placement and types havent changed since 2005.

I am using Zone Alarm Security Suite 7 and I think it tries to block ads.
I might turn that off or lower the settings and see what happens.

Theres your issue. Our ads are heavily incorportated into the site, and are not invasive.

Just an FYI. The website that causes my issues is:

h t t p ://bberry.com/external_marketing/blackberryforum/ad.php...
The rest of what it says I cant see and I added the spaces to the http to stop if from converting into a link.

I turned my Zone Alarm to medium blocking and still have the problem. I will try turning the ad/pop's off next.

Update, turning off the Zone Alarm Security Suite 7's pop up/ad/animation blocker did fix the problem.
