GCHQ Advert Problem
Whever this silly GCHQ Advert appears on a thread it completeley screws up web browsing - mouse stutters, scroll bars stutter - the PC is reduced to a complete mess.
2.33 Core 2 Duo / 2GB Ram / Raptor HDD / WinXp Pro.
Rest of the site is fine but as soon as this advert appears say bye bye to usability!!!
Please get rid of this advert until it is fixed!

I'm sure this add was screwing up when I was on toms hardware last night.

Not sure which ad it is. Can you knab a screenshot?
what browser are you using?
I have not noticed an issue with FF 3 browsing currently.

Same problem here. Awful when GCHQ advert is on page. The advert is animated/video. Has a globe on which unzips. I have a screenshot, but only managed to grab the last stage.

Yup thats the one the big globe swooshing and wooshing around.
It's _really_ bloody annoying now as it seems to come up on 50% of threads.
On IE6 here for my sins.

Its caused by GCHQ downloading your thoughts, looking for deviants.
