Get adblock, a extension for your browser which basically blocks all kinds of annoying adds, tell me which browser you are using ( internet explorer, google chrome, firefox.etc) and i will post a link you can click on to get adblock, and it is free and doesn't require making an web account.

I use internet explorer. I don't know if the ads are coming from the internet because my browser would be closed but the audio ads still play.
