    advertisments diverting web page (IE v5 i think...)

    When I try to go to some pages online, different banner-like advertisments "inturrupt" the loading of the page I was trying to view. For example: I typed in an address to the address bar, then it started loading. Before the loading finished, I was redirected to a new web page that was blank except for this advertisment for Amazon.com at the top. I cannot get to the site I was trying to access! Could someone help?

    P.s. It is not just the one site that is not working. This happens to very many of the pages I try to see. Thanks!

    Are you being sent to a ShopNav banner?

    Also are you typing in the complete (Http???????), or just the base address?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
