Hey Eric and Edward Wong,
firstly I've tried with running Firefox in safe mod with disabled ads. Result was negative, ads were visible at this board.
Secondly I've installed AdBlock Plus like Eric mentioned and without adding any filter rule it seems that ads went off smile.
However I'm sure that MS has been assaulted by some hackers (like Edward described least scenario) after I've goggled about it, I've found that people have many similar problems at different blogs and forums from last year let say.
Here is one good solution described (I don't know is it compatible to UBB.threads™ 7.3.1 which is used for MS) but could be helpful anyway:

That link makes a lot of sense. It was hacking like Edward said. Glad it's gone.

Note: I saw a lot of AdBlock comments. AdBlock may "block" an ad but it can and does load in your browser. So, if the ad has a virus, you still get it. Another reason why Steve Jobs hated Flash.

I use Opera and it has a global block of content from 2 places that is serving the ads. As of 3:34am CST, I still saw ads so I blocked them with the browser. MS, you have a hack or the webhost is screwed up. The ads are from "xxxpageads. googlesydication .com"(no spaces). I have no viruses. I ran that. About to run it again to make sure.

A guy opens the front door and sees a snail on his doorstep. He picks up the snail and throws it across the street in a neighbor's yard. A year later, the guy opens the front door and the same snail is on his doorstep. The snail says, "What the f*ck was that about?"
