As soon as it downloads, it disappears. Instead of seeing my website, I see a page full of advertisements.

The editing feature works fine.

Thanks!

Well, that's good to hear! I was afraid that no one was able to access my site.

You're right, it might be spyware problem. I'll look into that.

Here's what I see one second after it downloads....

I clicked on your site, and saw your page for less than a second.
I then saw your site as you do, just a handful of ads, with a prompt that a pop-up was blocked, and to click to allow it.
If you don't know what it is, I'm not going to look at it.

What is the deal with the pop up?

BTW, I use IE7, Windows Live One Care

FF shows six pop ups blocked and your page displays correctly.

If I allow the pop ups I get what you see, two above, and two below the body of the page.

Is this what you are doing to get a website? To avoid ads, you might have to go to the plus version. With the free version, there'll be ads. Just a hunch.

jrice, I use Internet Explorer 7.0.6

I ran Spybot S&D and no spyware was found. I may download and run Spyware Doctor later.

Brian, I've had this website for years now and just recently encountered this problem.
