    Stupid Toyota advertisment slowing down my computer!

    Any time I see the Toyota advertisement at the top of the screen I have to scroll the page down until it is up beyond the viewing limit (off the screen) to be safe from the lag. It REALLY slows my computer down for some reason, and there is no way my computer should slow down that much because of a web-page advertisement. Any idea what could be causing this? I'm fairly certain my browser and plugins are up to date, but I'll check again.

    Either way, I'm really starting to hate Toyota. Stupid ads. Anyone else having this problem?
    John 10 (KJV)
    27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
    28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
    29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

    It's interesting. I've never seen that ad so I can't comment. I see ads for retirement packages, home insurance, medical insurance for retired people etc. .... I guess somehow Google figures out our age too

    I keep getting Nissan adverts..... I suppose because I have been reading everything I can find on the new Nissan Leaf
    And Edgars' new Summer range of clothes...

    I was watching tutorial vids on Youtube about use of a speedlite with outdoor and indoor portrait photography. Since then a majority of the adds for me have been about... speedlites.

    I am getting ads for Christian books and one for high speed internet. I ordered a one volume Hebrew/Greek Interlinear bible online recently so I guess it may have left a cookie. Not sure about the high speed internet ad. I think these ads just read your cookies and present whatever that think might interest you. Something to think about if you see girly ads
    2 Ti 2:14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.

    Funny you should mention that. I think I now know why I am seeing adds for bras and such. My wife and her girlfriend use my laptop at church for presenting skits to the youth group, and they have it available to them for sometime before the kids show up. I was wondering how my laptop got tagged to see these ads. It sure isn't because I am searching for them.

    Do a search for something slow and boring...see if that helps...

We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; We drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; We drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated?" - D A Carson

    When I log on with IE I see adds for online ministry degrees.

    Do you think that means I've got some learning to do?

    Re: Stupid Toyota advertisment slowing down my computer!

    Okay, now this is distressing, because the ads that I keep getting are called Christian mingle, and I am the ONLY one who uses my computer and I have NEVER gone on ANY dating website, christian or otherwise!! Do you think that in addition to your age, they also know your marital status....???
    Slows my computer way down too.

    What i do at least once per week is to clear my cookies. Then I switch off the router and make sure I have a different IP address. That confuses the heck out of Google!
