  When that happens, you can just close the adverts pages.

  I have had a strange thing Darren, when going to download from sendspace on 
one download, while the download was taking place and indeed from when I went 
on the site, there were these adverts playing.  Did not work out what was going 
on there.

    Well this is a bit of a puzzler.

    After reading Ian's message about nothing happening when he went to the 
site, I went back again myself and yes, nothing played this time! So either BBC 
have changed something because its a new site in the early stages of release, 
or I just put it down to being one of those internet PC things that happen!

    Darran, none the wiser!

      I didn’t disable anything. You may find that disabling Flash actually 
turns out to be a bad idea in the end.

      Hi.

      No need to get back to me on this one, I think I found the solution!

      I disabled the Shockwave Flash player from Adobe and that seems to have 
done the trick.

      Sorry for bringing this to the list before checking out this possibility.

        Hi List.

        I've started to encounter more and more websites that will launch video 
content the minute they load, see 

        http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/sportsday/live/

        for an example of what I'm talking about.

        This obviously can make listening to JAWS a bit of a problem and I'm 
simply looking for a way to stop this from happening. Does anyone have a 
solution?

        I've checked in the Multi Media options in IE and there's nothing there 
about videos, sounds yes, videos no. 

        Thanks.

        Darran
