I am being pestered every time i visit PGATOUR.com by an ad in the bottom left corner that grows in size whenever a mouse pointer moves over it. That is every time I move to the scroll bar.
Anyone know how to kill this one,

Hi Jack, I see what you mean, but I had to fire up Internet Explorer before I saw it because it does not do it in Firebird. Maybe you could change your browser? :-)

Failing that, the effect does not happen when Active X is refused so you could try changing your IE settings to prompt before running Active X controls and plug-ins and then you can refuse the ones you don't want and be able to surf without these annoying things. ;-)

It might be because you have Macromedia Flash installed because when I went to the page in IE I was asked if I wanted to install MF (and I did not). The page then indicated one item left remaining to open - perhaps your ad.

I then looked at the page in Netscape 7.1 and it loaded normally - no sign of an ad in the bottom left corner.
