    Odin's Great Beard, how in the hell do I turn the sound off on the DGB advertisement?

    *** EDIT *** Fixed the problem. Thanks everyone.


    For the love of God, that DGB ad that runs in at the bottom of each page with the *@&@$&@$ing highlights and the terrible background music and the announcers has a mute button on it that DOES NOT WORK!

    I like the "I'm so proud to be your insurance agent" ads and the rest of the ads. I installed AdBlock specifically so I can block that one single ad, and it appears to have stopped working today. Please God, somebody, anybody, help me block it.

    Turn the sound off your computer. Seems too simple.

    That's because it is too simple.

    Windows 7 is a multi-tasking operating system. If that means nothing to you, let me break it down for you: it can do more than one thing at a time. It's probably news to you that something can do more than one thing at once, but not everyone or everything has your limited capabilities.

    As an example of things that the wonderful operating system can do, it can both run an Internet browser AND a media player AT THE SAME TIME!! (audience cue: ooOOooOOooOOoo!!!) And if you hook up the correct peripheral (made by Ginsu!), the computer can also slice a tin can!!

    If you made it this far through my caustic response, congrats troll for reading a troll response.

    The irony of complaining about ads on a free site....

    As I stated, I could care less that there are ads. I don't want to block them. The problem is that one of the ads plays sound, and the volume control on it does not work.

    So turn the volume down on your media player until you are done on the website. Seems like a small price to pay for what you get. Otherwise, Cyclone Report doesn't have ads. They do charge you real money and don't have the content but at least you wouldn't be inconvenienced.

    He has a valid request. There really isn't a reason to be snotty about it.

    The volume button on the ad also seems to work for me. I run Chrome, don't know if that makes a difference.

    I don't, either. I'm not hearing it, but I'm happy about it.

    Thanks for those who responded with their experience. I'll post some specs for comparison sake. I doubt it has anything to do with it, but you never know.

    I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1.
    Core i7 920 @2.67GHz
    24GB RAM

    I also use Chrome, the installed version number is 18.0.1025.162.

    Ok, figured it out. The volume control works for me... but I have to close the browser completely, all tabs, and then restart the browser. After the restart, the next time the ad loads, it plays at the sound level that I set before closing the browser.

    Thanks for the help.

    I dont know why some are being such dicks in this thread. CW has said before to report these types of ads and they'll be taken care of.

    FYI, You can block single ads using adblock. Click the ABP stop sign, Easy Create Filter, select item that is bothering you, and ta-dah.
