Yes, I found that. Unfortunately, the program does not show up on the list of installed apps.

I don't know about you but when I load CR the level of ads has dramatically increased in the last month or so. The added links are just a small portion of nonsense ads being peddled here lately.. right now as type this reply I get Purdue University ads and the "Sexiest night sleep slip styles" ads revolving every minute or so.

Have to agree - I am now getting so many ads popping up, that my page view jumps around 4 times before it settles down every time I change page - and I then have to close the bottom window which goes across sthe page and blocks off about 20% of my screen if I want to access anything there. I'm all for Craig making a living in return for providing a great site, but the recent overload is really beginning to impinge on the experience.

Having said that, I don't run any ad blockers at all, so maybe it's on me for not doing something to cut them out.
