    I can't locate it's exact source, but I know it's your homepage. Please make it stop.

    What app are you using? I do not hear any music on WPCentral.com.

    Not sure what you are saying? But you can Volume up or down and the pause button will show up on the screen. Is that what you were asking?

    So many sites do such annoying things with ads anymore. I use NoScript in Firefox. I use it for security, not as an adblock. But it amazes me when I visit a site in IE how annoying browsing the web can be. Ajax ads fly in constantly (which is REALLY handy on mobile touch browsers btw), those stupid ads that jump out if you accidentally roll your mouse over the wrong word in a paragraph, and ads that start automatically playing video and audio at complete random. It is a shame.

    I think it was the Microsoft Livecast embed.

    Actually I have the same problem as the OP: when visiting wpcentral with the IE on Win8.1, after some time, music starts somewhere on the page. This is extremely annoying. It doesn't happen immediately, but you need to give it 30 s or even longer. It is not in the forum or the WP app.

    Please stop this, it actually physically drives me away from wpcentral.

    I found an autoplay ad at the bottom of the sidebar. The volume selector was at its lowest setting, though I don't know if that was just me.

    (Just checked this thread in IE and the same crap-ad is there. (err, here.)

    I understand the need for ads on websites, but I have very little respect for sites that use autoplay ones. Thus, adblockers are a must.

    Yes, that is it. I found it too. The adblocker is a good idea. But since the site is free, I am giving them a couple of weeks to fix this. If they don't fix it, I will move on with an adblocker. Can you recommend one for IE?

    @All - FYI, if you encounter an autoplay or annoying ad in the future, do screen cap it and send my way. I can bring it up with our ad partner. Thanks.

    Visit this page: Fanboy Adblock Homepage . (If you're on Metro IE11 or Desktop this works!) Add both of the TOP TpLs. This will block almost all ads! Found this on Youtube and have had it in my browser since.
