I tried to replicate this and can't. It could have been an ad that squeaked through the ad networks and is now removed, but they are usually pretty good about that. I'd be more inclined to suspect something local on your machine.

Anyone else experience this?

No but all the layout of the pages has been screwy for me for the last day?
Links back from the thread back out to the forum are gone and lots of text boxes/links running over the top of each other in random places, and the notification/pm/login/account line of links usually top right is gone?

Had no idea. Working on most of it - I can't duplicate your issue with the missing notification/pm/settings/etc. bar, though. That appears just fine for me. It's missing even if you're logged in? It looks like most of these issues appear when you're not logged in.

looking for classic NE singletrack
I got the "drivers out of date", but on a different website (www.madison.com). It popped up along with a dialog box (update drivers), but the header on the page (little icon on the tab?) still had the default madison.com logo. It's definitely something floating out there, but don't think it's ridemonkey specific.
