Is this happening to anyone else?

I keep getting this "NetZero Voice Plan" ad on each screen I click for dc. It also doesn't have a button to close the ad's window. It's very annoying and I can't figure out how to get rid of it. Even right now as I type, there is this ad at the top ofthis page that is covering half the screen. I can't even see what I'm typing right now, just cross my fingers that I am typing without too many mistakes. How can I get rid of this?

corazon, even if it's gone, did you try the right click down at the task bar and then "close"?

It doesn't come up as a pop up or new screen, it's overlapping DC completely, like it's a part of the page. Just close out your internet and reopen it. That should stop it.

Yep, it's been happening for a couple days now. It said "social network" but yea its actually a netzero ad. Texasgirl is right, it's not a popup as I mentioned, it takes over the DC page completely. I ended up logging off and back on again. A tad annoying!

I don't have it either, I have a couple of good pop up blockers though. May I suggest Microsofts pop up blocker and Googles? They block nearly everything for me. You can also adjust the level of pop ups to block. Moderate, high, your choice. I believe that is in internet options.
