FYI, those video ads are playing again at the bottom of forum threads and hubs. The last one was for Mucinex allergy medicine. When they play, typing acts weird, like the keys are stuck. It might be because I'm using IE instead of Google Chrome.

Hard to tell for sure, but it sounds like it could also be malware or adware on your systems, especially if you only see the content in one browser.
You might want to do a malware scan on your computer.
If you are still seeing the ads after, try to take some screen shots, let us know and we can see if we can track the ads down.

Every page or forum I read on HP if filled with numerous Text Ads/Links. Very annoying! I have had to turn on Adblocker to read through a hub or a forum because of these pop-up text ads. I hope this is only a bug and not a new program. I always avoid sites that have these and this could irritate...

I just noticed that there are advertisements underneath the threads in the forums. Is that normal?
