    I see it but, I also have a HP elitebook big banner ad at the top of the page plus a big Discover card ad too.

    IMHO I think this has to do with the browser remembering the sites you visited and placing ads accordingly. I ordered a system at lenovo.com. Paid my credit card at Discover. Did some research on an elitebook while shopping for my X230t.

    I pretty much get a lenovo or HP ad on most pages I visit including the website I go to check cricket scores.

    Ditto. I don't really like the NBR template.

    Everytime you change pages you gotta skip the ad first. They gotta pay the bills but ... really ... :D

    Thanks, Thor. Since the latest "upgrade" changes, I followed your hint and have used the vB4 Default Style. No ads.

    (Alternatively, one can scroll to the bottom of the page and select the style option on the left corner.)
