It's on there a lot and what the hell did I win?

And it scares the sh*t outta me. It's a scam!

The ads that talk, any of them, piss me off to no end.  This is one of the worst though.

I'd like to find out who created these talkie ads, sneak up on him when he is sitting and relaxing in the quiet, surfing the internet, and scream in his ear, "CONGRATULATIONS YOU SUNOVABITCH!  YOU JUST WON A DAMNED PANTSLOAD OF SH*T!"

When I had my computer in the shop after it crashed last month, one of the things the tech guy did was to install SpywareStop.  Prior to my computer crashing, I had been getting a lot of those ads.  Since then, none at all.  I don't know if SpywareStop's the reason (it could've also been the Panicware that I installed, too, or the Microsoft security updates), but whatever, my computer's been running (and behaving) great ever since.

If you're not seeing those ads now, Spywarestop must be some kind of adblocker.Thumbs%20Up
Wish they had an adblocker for the TV.Wink

Yep.  It's an adblocker.  I understand that spyware often also contains adware, so SpywareStop deals with both problems.  Every day, it detects and quarantines 40-50 such problems.
 
As far as a program to delete ads on TV---what would ever happen to CIH?  Shocked

I've seen these ads too much! I actually fell for one of these scams for a toy I wanted when I was young, and I had to close my email account because I kept on getting more and more scam ads, and boy were my parents angry when they found out I did that! But I never got the toy...

What's worse is getting the ad late at night and waking up whoever is in the house with you.

It's all a big scam.  A "free" laptop ends up costing you your soul.  Because in order to get it, you have to give so much personal information that you will be inundated with ads for the rest of your natural life.
