Sometimes, the drop down menus at the top of my screen (My Geek, Browse, Forums and so on) appear behind the advert when I move my pointer over them. It always happens with the Talisman advert, not sure about any others. It makes the drop down menu unclickable and takes me to the adverts url instead.

I've noticed this too, with the Talisman advert.

As a temporary fix you can access the hidden menus by selecting "view" and changing the % size of the browser/screen (on a PC).

I tend to click on another link so I get a different advert.

Hmm, that definitely shouldn't be happening. I just got a Talisman banner and the menu went over top of it as it should. Perhaps it's browser specific?

We just had a similar problem with a works web site. I don't pretend to know what any of this means but the tech guy sorted it saying it was caused by the security setting, some talk about "google’s own version of a hosted script serving an unsecure version".

For us it only happen with Firefox.

Sorry if I am regurgitating gobbledygook.

Unfortunately I'm not a techie so can't understand that!

Now that the Talisman advert isn't omnipresent on the home screen the problem seems to have gone.
