    Decent AV, yes, but ad Blocker, no.

    This site requires ad revenue to continue. If you wish to use Ad Blocker, please do not use the site.

    I don't think the OP is asking about problems with a virus.

    From my read, it looks like an ad is covering the "manage games" button so that he cannot use that feature.

    I don't think an AV program will fix that problem.

    Can you tell me which browser you are using (or send site feedback so we can check).

    The box you describe should be just sat next to the ad and not interfere with the main page. Is this not the case, we will fix this.

    I have no problems using Firefox, but at first I did, until I disabled a couple of add-ons. Check your add-ons list and try disabling one by one to see if the problem goes away.

    This problem hasn't been reported by anyone else, so it's likely to be peculiar to your browser settings. Exactly what extensions do you have listed on your Tools>Addons page?

    Wow! A "senior lady" knows Firefox, add-ons, and browser settings. I'm impressed. Of course I'm still using Windows 3.1.

    This should be fixable if you're using a normal PC screen. I can't see it myself because I don't see the ads, but almost any addon for any program can affect other programs too. In my case I had to disable three addons which I couldn't even think might have affected RHP, but they did, the site worked properly as soon as they were disabled. I brought them back one by one, to identify the one that was a problem, and when I found it I disabled it again. End of problem.

    Your other option is to try using either Internet Explorer or Google Chrome, see what happens on either of those.

    Afterthought: if you use the "insert smiley" on the posting page (it's below the typing box and Post button) you get proper little graphics. rather than :-(
