None of us are apparently having the problem that you are experiencing. So in order to help you, we need to see what you're seeing. If you don't think it's worth it, that's entirely up to you and we understand.

In most Windows systems, you can press the Prt Sc (Print Screen) button on your keyboard to copy the image to the windows clipboard and then save it to a graphic file like bmp or jpg. Then attach the file to your next post. (or you can do what I did with this post and pasted it into the attached Word document).

Hi, I have tried to do as you instructed but I'm sorry I do not have enough knowledge to do this, what I can tell you is that underneath your post is a large ad for adobe stock!
I don't understand why I can see it andf you can't. I am a member of several other forums and this is the only one that does not work properly (its maybe operator error on my part i don't know) all I do know is its happening. Paneuro.

Just a quick note, the adobe ad offering 65% off some sort of app has now jumped from under your post to under mine.!!!

Hi,,

I'm not seeing any such ads and there are no other reports. That's not an ad from this forum, it appears your browser may have picked up a malware which injects spam ads. There are various anti malware programs that should help.

Hi Bob, It would appear to be something to do with google who are putting up ads based on my browsing history. I don't know how to stop it but I will try. Paneuro
