    And the reason I am asking is because few days ago I downloaded and installed a little program that adds plugins to Power Point from a third party vendor.
    And again if it is you guys trying to pay off for the web site expenses, I don't care. I am just trying to figure out if I fubared my PC.

    Never noticed this, I have AdBlock, mainly for faster load times. It would explain the empty spaces on the forums.

    Yeah ad block really helps us a lot to pay the bills, not.

    @George, yes those are google ads that people can click on.

    Ah ok Bram. Thank you for ze info :)

    And really I am not bitching about it. I was just trying to see if I messed up my browsers.
    Whatever keeps RD afloat with cash is fine by me.

    If you donate, 3EUR a month (or more if you want). You will not have any ads on the forum :)
    Just see here

    Same here indeed. I don't really like it, as these adds look a bit like forum topics instead of real ads.

    I think that's the whole point Johan.
