How am I supposed to do a search??

There's a huge pop up ad right in front of the search window. It completely blocks where I am supposed to put the information for the search! This is not very user friendly, it sucks...Thank you for your help. This is very frustrating.

Are you using Firefox or IE?

It happened to me once, then it went away... I think it might be one certain ad that's doing it...

No there is no close button...I am on MOzilla Firefox but currently am experiencing a problem with a virus known as Vundum. This virus throws pop ups at the worst time but I did not think that is what I am experiencing now. However I guess that is still possible that this is the result of the spyware/virus...

Do you have Adblock loaded for Firefox? If not then load this and it will get rid of that and every other ad.

I can attest to GB's suggestion, jp. It's great!

it's probably too late for that as I need to get the pc serviced owing to the virus: vundo is the correct spelling. I am not sure it's the virus, as the problem did not occur when I first logged on but am now experiencing it. I will have to get back on this issue after we get rid of the vundo..

The virus is no reason not to load adblock. It loads in 2 seconds and then you will be done with ads for good. The popup ad you are talking about I am pretty sure has nothing to do with your virus. Other DC members have complained about that one in the past.

I think that Google advanced search works a lot better than vBulliten search. Have you tried that jp?
