    banners-never again

    [rant]i will never click on another ad-banner on this website ever again. I got bored and shot the 3 ducks, i knew i would be routed to some BS site. WELL, it shot me to browserwize, and the page url was install.htm, thats when i said oh crap and quickly closed it. But i was not quick enough aparently because it had installed the stupid search engine toolbar ever, sure i can uncheck it so it doesnt show up, but its still an option, and it cant be removed. Plus its the principle that they would FLING THERE SMELLY-**** at me like that, ****ING ........ES ME THE **** OFF!!!!!! GOD DAMNIT. [/rant]

    The lesson - NEVER click on a banner. What were you thinking Cgawd?

    I got fed up with the banners here some time ago. I usually don't have a problem (hell at UF I click them every few days to support the site) but here they are offensive. So they are no more. I replace them all with a grey rectangle that says "This is an ad". Of course it wouldn't surprise me if kermi were looking into eyeblaster ads, since the standards seem to be so low around here.

    Same thing happened to me once (except I never clicked on a banner). It is registered as a program and can be removed through Add/Remove Programs in windows.
