    In the last few weeks I have been having problems using this form in IE9, (with Win 7-64) the ads say "The webpage cannot be found" or sometimes the ads show, the form only loads part way. No problems using FireFox. Anybody else having problems with this form and IE9 (if anybody is still using IE9).

    Do you mean "forum" or ?

    It works fine for me in IE9 on Win7 64. Did you install flash? A lot of the stupid ads all over this forum use flash.

    I do have Flash version 11,4,402,278 installed on my IE9, and i did mean Forum.
    The forum does work much better on IE9-64, I don't know if a IE9-32 setting is not correct.
    The problem may have something to do with Norton Security Suite V 6.3.0.14 because if I uncheck the Norton Tool bar the forum does start to work.

    I just tried this thread using IE9 on Windows 7 32-bit and I also sometimes gets errors.
    So far they all was for Google ads.

    The failed ones had this in them googleads.g.doubleclick.net.
    I only had the top banner add and the upper ad on the right side fail for me.

    Here's one of the failed ones.
    Code:
    res://ieframe.dll/http_400.htm#http://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads?format=nanxnan&output=html&ea=0&flash=0&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tivocommunity.com%2Ftivo-vb%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D493848&dt=1349238009137&bpp=10&shv=r20120926&jsv=r20110914&correlator=1349238010309&frm=24&adk=3258867418&ga_vid=769499378.1349238010&ga_sid=1349238010&ga_hid=1083830475&ga_fc=0&u_tz=-240&u_his=1&u_java=1&u_h=768&u_w=1280&u_ah=728&u_aw=1280&u_cd=24&u_nplug=0&u_nmime=0&dff=times%20new%20roman&dfs=16&adx=-12245933&ady=-12245933&biw=-12245933&bih=-12245933&isw=160&ish=600&ifk=3009901763&oid=3&docm=9&fu=0&ifi=1&dtd=1246
    
    Edit: I just realized that having flash for Firefox does not mean I have it for IE9; downloading it now.
    Edit2: I realized those spots are blank for me using Firefox; so maybe I do not have flash for it either.
    The error messages do look bad under IE9; while the white spots look normal under Firefox.

    The ads still have problems but unchecking the Norton safe web the TCF appears now to be working.

    With Win XP and IE8 I get a lot of "The Web page cannot be displayed" messages for the ads -- and it's never bothered me. Wouldn't be surprised if it's my AV that's doing it. Sites that use the Flash player play fine, so don't think that has anything to do with it.

    I also use a Win7-64 system with IE9. I don't remember what problem if any it has with ads but, whatever it may be, it hasn't bothered me.

    Yeah, I'm running Win7-64 and IE9 and have the same issue with the ads. I see this as a plus but the other thing I've noticed is that most of the time my "Back" arrow does not work on this forum. That is not a plus. Wonder if the two things are related.

    I block some of the typical ad sites even on earlier versions of IE by adding them to the "hosts" file with an address of 127.0.0.1. It's amazing how fast the guide listings at zap2it load that way. :)

    I used to use host file blocking with the host file provided by: http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm but have moved to using various Firefox extensions instead as I don't do any high risk surfing and only really need basic add blocking.
