    For weeks now, I have been plagued by an iphone4 advert in Greek. It has a voice-over from a loud woman trying to get me to buy one every time I change something in the ProBoards Forum that I use every day. The voice bursts from my laptop and scares the living daylights out of me and anyone else in the room. How on earth do I get rid of it?

    Should take care of most, if not all, ads on forums.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
