If you use IE you need to remove this site from the list found under Tools>pop-up blocker>pop-up blocker settings.
I use Google Chrome but I'll try what you did

I will need to know what the ads are for to have any chance of getting this sorted.

You see what I see, Frank. Or rather what I saw

After thinking about it more, I think the only ones I've seen are "mouseover" ads that expanded.

They annoy me too, but white-area clicking closes them, so I've never really focused on them.

Non-called popups...I don't think I've had any here. I turned off the PM notification in the site settings for vBulletin in the User CP, so I've never gotten that one.

Thanks for your help Frank!

That sounds like a good solution, too.
