I am unsure if anyone else is having this problem, but whenever I log into CNC Zone Forums, this pop up Solidworks advertising banner appears to lock me up for several minutes. I realize you all need to advertise but is there another manner you can do the popups?

Thanks

I use http://adblockplus.org/en/
and http://noscript.net
These can be a bit of a pain when you first go to a website, but once you accept the site it all works normally, and you can block items that are of no interest/use to you, and it helps avoid getting click-thru diseases.
You can always control what is being blocked, so if you block an advert that you would never buy from nobody 'loses' anything.
Great for stopping g00gle analyzers and that sort of stuff too.
Any 'important' adds on a website will be dynamic, like the banks think they are, and blocking will only block one instance.
