    For a little while now I've been noticing my PC starts downloading something whenever it's on this site. I subsequently fixed an error with my Audio setup and now I have discovered that it's streaming ads nonstop. Not the ones at the right hand side of every page, but audio ones, voice-overs, which come with a speaker icon in the address bar, but which I am unable to stop.

    I can mute them but can't stop them eating away at my data quota. They're on autoplay and permanent repeat. They're unwanted and going to be expensive unless I stop visiting this site permanently. Which I'd rather not do. ;)

    How is this ad issue able to be corrected?

    Thanks for your time.

    Gah, I wish I could help. What browser do you use? If you can switch, maybe they'll go away?

    If you see an ad that is for some reason inappropriate, please take a screen shot and PM the pic to a staff member.

    Some other options.....

    Is it a specific ad? If so:
