Oh.

That's not supposed to happen. (The ads I mean, not you logging in, lol)

Can you make your window full screen and see if there is an X that is out of sight?

The point is, the OP isn't supposed to get ads. That's the privileges of being a logged-in member. No ad, period.

Download the movie and it will go away.

That's coming from something on your own system. Run Malwarebytes or something similar.

I don't think the privilege is as absolute as that.
What we've been told in the past is that ads decrease in proportion to the number of posts made.
I've made a respectable number of posts, so my ads have almost disappeared, but i still see them if I venture onto the front page.

Just happened to me. I did have to click the ad, close the new page and refresh the original one. And am logged in.

Are you using Windows Explorer or Edge, like the OP?

I'm using Chrome. On a laptop with Win 10. Don't know why you thought "Edge", and don't even know what that is.

Anyway -- above is the screenshot again.

At least that ad is better than the chickens riding the bicycles with that horrible rap music. It's enough to drive you insane.

That's Chrome?! Gosh, looks just like Internet Explorer. I'm never upgrading to Windows 10!

Yeah, no doubt! I just want to say that I don't ever "log out." I go to ATS via my browser and see "my ATS" on my screen, frequently under a banner ad, which I just ignore. A few months ago, we had this same thing where the full-page ad shows up.....it has happened a few times since then, but cleared up pretty fast.

Anyway -- just wanted to bring it to amin attention.

Maybe you are surfing those gossip sites again.

Google picks up everything about you.
