  • i know i saw a thread for this type of comment somewhere but i am a little lazy right now to look for it d'oh!

    I keep getting hit with a Toshiba ad that pops up over everything i am doing and forces me to have to close it and it ends up crashing my internet (using google chrome)


    just thought this was a good place to whine Laughing

  • You should only get it once per browser session.

    I got it once earlier today and have not had it again. Are you closing your browser a lot and then coming back to the site?

  • well the reason it probably kept coming up was that every time my browser crashed, i restored my session..so that makes sense if it is once per session because technically i was in the same session Brick wall thanks for the info

  • google chrome of course Cool ...but the ad is what made my browser crash when it was trying to load

    so the last time i restored the browser i clicked the close button before it could attempt to load up the add Laughing problem solved

  • Don't close CBR Smile

    Like I said it is once per browser session. I haven't had it since this morning. I have contacted the ad network to see if they can investigate why it is failing in chrome.
