Hi there I would like to get more dreams for deskscapes from the wincustomize.com site but all I get is an ad from Dick Smiths on the screen which has an X in the corner but it doesn't exit the ad. It just repeats over and over but does not close.

If I open Deskscapes and click the "Get More Backgrounds" tab and chose either the animated or static background download option it opens wincustomize.com. It then shows a Flash advert for Dick Smiths and blanks out the wincustomize site. The ad has an X in the corner that doesn't exit when I click it. Therefore I cannot view the wincustomize site.

There's been reports/complaints, on IRC, about just that ad.
Subscription or not, access shouldn't be 'blocked' by ads, really.

I can't seem to get that ad to come up.  HP should be the main ad showing as an overlay.

Yes - the main page gets the ad - if I use another forum link or other page I'm able to get in here. And it's dick smith ad for me too. I got around it by 'scrolling down' - the ad stayed in the upper half of the page.

If I scroll down it follows me down too. Still doesn't exit the advert when I click the X.

If you click X and then scroll it seems to help not following down.

Even I get that ad sometimes.  It pops up when going to the site and you cannot close it. I hit refresh though and it went away and then I could log in (which is weird because I never logged out).  If I remember correctly the last ad that came up like that was for HP.

If someone can screenshot it that would be helpful.

The browser extension "Do Not Track +" kills that ad.
