Hi guys,

I am new to Vista and I am having trouble getting rid of those Moving Ads, Like on E-Bay and other web sites.

Is there a way I can turn them off ?

Many Thanks,

32 bit Vista Home Premium

You probably got infected with some adware so scan your computer with your virus program and your adware program.

Ok, here is where I'm at as of today... I am running Norton Internet security 2009, I ran live update and a scan. It came back negative and made no difference in my problem. I am running firefox with Ad-block plus, In options on ad block plus I have the " show tabs on flash and java " UN-checked. Is this what you are talking about ? or do I need to download a different add on in Firefox ? I can go into Tools, options,content, and UN-check the " enable Java script " box and it will keep the ads from moving, However when I do this on some sites like E-bay it will not allow me to move from one page to another without re enabling Java script. Is there any else I can try ? those flash adds really mess me up on my consentration. Thanks,

Try...

FlashBlock

An example of results is below. One can click on the flash icon to play the add, or any other flash component of a website. Also, an option is provided to allow flash on sites.
