You can slide the bar back and forth - probably to a higher number. Of course this depends on your video card and monitor, but those are the basics. Each video card and monitor have a "native" setting that gives the best picture. Hope this makes sense.
    Yes, your suggestion makes sense but changing the resolution made no difference, already tried that. I am using Vista and IE. May as well end this thread as nothing is going to make a difference. Thanks all. Have not checked on my desktop yet to see if the issue is present there....I am using a Toshiba 17.3 inch laptop. The problem began recently although I have not changed any settings at all that would have created the problem.

    I didn't plan to do much of anything today, but by noon I was almost half done.

    Many times, Microsoft products respond to a computer reboot. They tend to lose their way. If you have not tried a reboot, you may give that a shot just for pain and suffering.

    Current resolution is set at 1280X800....if I go to 1440X900 the same issue occurs...if I lower the resolution to 1024X600 it goes away but the screen is horribly grainy and I cannot even look at it for more than a few minutes. My desktop doesn't have the problem which means it's an issue with my laptop, perhaps the browser is compressing things....rebooting as Fossil Farm suggests makes no changes. Thanks much for the help you have given, guys.

    I'm running a 17" laptop with the resolution set to 1920 x 1080 and don't have a problem with that ad at that resolution.

    I bump down to your 1440 x 900 and still don't have a problem.

    Heck, I bump down to 1280 x 800 and don't have it. I'm running IE 8, Firefox and Chrome and it is the same with all of them.

    Perhaps Vista and the version of IE is the culprit. Hope you find a solution.

    It just began a few days ago and I suspect it's a browser issue and more of an irritation than a problem....thanks again for trying to help me solve it.

    I am using Ad Block Plus on Google Chrome, and it does an outstanding job.

    I just got tired of a lot of searched items which would appear on my page as an ad.

    When I works, I works hard. When I sits and thinks, I goes to sleep.

    Git er done.

    Yeah. It can spoil Christmas for you if you get on line and ads start appearing for stuff your spouse has been searching for to buy for you.
