Yeah, I get it that because of these adds ArmorGames is benefiting from it but just to let you guys know_
When ever I click on a game, I get this university add and then I click exit to it like usual BUT
That was on FireFox, on internet explorer I get the same thing except
The grey screen happens, the add should happen but the add just isn't there, game continues to load, screen is still grey and unresponsive around the loading screen of game.
I don't get it, I can't log in, read comments anything because of grey screen around the game/where add should be loading.

Help?

same when ever I click on a game that's not a MMO these ads pop up and the screen turns grey
the bad part is the fact that most of the time the exit button is behind the game so the screen stays grey.
I can still play the game but I cant comment on the game and I when I want to go play a different game the grey screen stops me from clicking on any thing so I have to go to the previous page and do it there so please fix it

I know ads are needed to support the site, but there are times where the ads interfere with the games. I was playing a zombie game and lost because I accidentally moused-over a freybe ad. The Ad went full screen over the game, but no auto-pause on this particular game

I don't like ads, but they aren't that bad, at least it's not a full page porn pop up.

It is your computer, or rather your browser, and that of others reporting on it.

Sadly, I can't help you with it. You must be blocking something in Internet Explorer; but the way this is embedded in IE, I wouldn't know what to change for it to be unblocked. You could of course fiddle around with all of your browser's applicable-looking settings & see what you come up with. (Off the top of my head, you could try and allow pop-up screens for ArmorGames and see if that helps. But I know in IE I've often just found no solution to these things.) Or it could in fact be some Windows settings, I suppose.

Since however you say you're already used to Firefox and it works for you, I'd suggest just using it. FF or the way I have set it up does allow me greater control of these settings, and/or they're more intuitive to find. Or more precisely: Some Firefox add-ons allow me to, it's not really FF as such.

If someone can explain here what and how to adjust in IE to have these things work, then great.

To an Internet Explorer user, it is really very easy to switch to Firefox.

Of course, all things new take some getting used to, but it is very easy to come to grips with. Nor do you need to completely abandon IE if you don't want to: They can just be installed and used side-by-side.

(In fact, I think you'll be needing IE at least for your Windows updates still, at any rate.)

... And then pps, of course I sometimes have the converse happening, too: There are web pages that I can't get to function in FF for the life of me, but that do work with no ado in IE.

Now for those that work in neither... (And no, I don't much feel like installing and trying out still more browsers )

I'm trying to post a screen shot of the problem, but it is not working.
For some reason I can't get it in here.
Is there some website I can't post it on, to send here.
-
Still, I have experienced this problem to every game on ArmorGames with IE.
: I will get screen shot as soon as possible.
*I prefer to use IE

Any help would be nice

Iv been trying alot lately to get a screenshot onto anything to place here but I'm afraid that the software for this old computer isn't allowing me to, saying a bunch of technical nonsense.
I mean I do this all the time, I can do it in my sleep on my newer laptop with the more uptodate software but I can't obtain it for now so I am stuck with this older pc.
The other person that commented earlier however has the exact same issue, so I hope he can get a screenshot for us.

Press "print-screen" + FN on your keyboard if a FN is not there then it is not required, just use "print-screen".
The paste_Ctrl+v_ onto a google document for example. Which you can take the link from and paste onto here.

Gl to the moderators trying to fix this

I have seen this on many AG games recently. The ad comes up 'behind' the game, and in some cases, the close 'X' in the corner may or may not be visible. In any case, it seems that you would want the ad to be visible wouldn't you? Why would the advertisers pay for an ad that you can't see?
BTW... I have a few screenshots of this problem... Where should I send them?

Thanks to a screenshot and some testing, I see the issue is mostly around IE users and I'm able to replicate the issue. We've contacted the people that would fix it, and they are hard at work on a solution!
