I know this is probably kicking a dead horse, but when I get popup ads they are videos running without sound... advertisements for all kinds of things including KY... they are in several small screens all at once and with my limited bandwidth they are making using the forum difficult. When I'm typing for instance there might be several seconds delay between characters typed then displayed. This is unacceptable. What to do?

I do not get any pop up ads on this site at all, I never have in the year and half I have been on here. I dont get them on my iphone, my macbook, or my work computer (dell). The only ads are the normal small banner ads up top or the small ad boxes to the right.

Im thinking you have something else going on, virus, malware, or spyware. Have you ran a system scan with your anti-virus software lately?

The ad locations you mention is where I see them now... stationary as it were... one for Lazydays RV to the right; Nissan near the bottom and belVita at the top... but no videos. My antivirus is up to date and I have block pop ups selected. The other day is the second time I noticed the incredible slowdown videos running. I use Chrome since IE was worse. I will try one of the ad blocking browsers and see how that goes. Thanks for the input.

I get that issue on my home computer. Adblock will stop that for you.

I use IE on my PC and get 1 stationary ad on the right toward the bottom. Had to look for it, really unobtrusive

I just scanned computer for malware and I have none, however I am watching a video running to the right "Health - Food Myths: Eating Late... video without sound. I tried an ad blocking on the other PC, and it is better.

+1 on Fonzie's suggestion for Adblock Plus. I run it (OS X/Safari) and it's showing 6 blocked ads right now. I just disabled it and sure enough see a couple animated ads on the forum page.
Ads do pay for us to have Forest River Forums for free, but when it comes to eating bandwidth, especially at campsites with constricted WiFi, or worse data caps/cost on my tethered mobile phone, ads gotta go.
