turn off sound on pc then?

Hi wheelsonthebus,

We shouldn't have any ads that make noise unless you click them to play the sound. If there is an ad that is making sound on its own, let us know and we'll get it taken off

have turned sound off pc (hopeless for trying to source noise tho' mrs badger)

I am irritated beyond belief at the screaming from the ONE ad (I think that's it anyway). Have resorted to turning the sound off on my pc but kids turn it on again to play games.

Just checked - it is def. the 'one railway' ad. It screams regularly without me clicking on it. . I can hear it faintly even with the sound turned right down.

thanks millarkie - thought i was going mad, and it was really irritating my colleagues. that is the one - i suspected it, but wasn't sure. Mumsnet, can you stop it?

That one screams at me too! Wondered what it was for ages

Please please Tech - stop it screaming. With the volume turned down I still hear it and I just missed a heartbeat because I thought it was dd (in bed upstairs) screaming.

Hi there, We've let the ad agency know, so hopefully they'll remove the offending screaming ad.

Millarkie · 10/08/2007 22:06

I've turned the volume up a bit - fingers crossed.
