    Getting Rid of a Banner Ad That Follows Me Everywhere?
    How do I get rid of an incredibly annoying banner ad that seem to appear on almost every web page I open? Has anyone seen these Ads?
    It's a flashing ad with a blue border and a yellow smiley face. It announces "Congratulations! You've Won!"
    There's a grey background and it also states THIS IS NOT A JOKE - YOU ARE THE 100,00TH VISITOR!
    Click Here! It's actually on this very page as I write this. It seems to follow me everywhere. Does anyone out there know how to get rid of them ?
    It seems to appear in greater frequency on just about every single web page I open on every website.
    I can't seem to rid of it.
    It's really annoying.

    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!
