Ditch Internet Explorer as your browser.

Download and use either Firefox or Chrome.

Problem solved.

You can download AdBlock for Chrome. It works perfectly; I don't see one advertisement on this site (nor on any other).

I don't use a Mac or Safari, but a quick search found this which should work for you: AdBlock. =)

I use Firefox almost exclusively. When I don't, IE 9 seems to work well with ADBlock, too

Hey Andy,
iM running MacOS 10.4.11 which is the last system that will work on this non Intell Mac, i.e. its an elderly Power Mac.

All I can suggest is searching for an blocking add-on that will work with your system. Are you running an ad blocker on your newer stuff?

I'm using Firefox 5 and adblock plus. I never see an ad.
