I am currently having a problem seeing google ads on my PC's browsers, IE and Firefox, however they can be viewed by 2 other PC's browsers on the network.  The ads display within the 2 pc's browsers on the page: http://hsn.live.mediaspanonline.com/weather/  All the PC's are up to date, and all run Windows XP Professional.  Our network consists of remote profiles as well.  here is a sample of the code I am using.  I blanked out the ad_client,

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "Blanked_out";
google_ad_width = 300;
google_ad_height = 250;
google_ad_format = "300x250_as";
google_ad_type = "text_image";
google_ad_channel ="";
google_color_border = "CCCCCC";
google_color_bg = "92C9EF";
google_color_link = "000000";
google_color_url = "666666";
google_color_text = "333333";
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">

Where should the ad appear on the page?

If the ad doesn't appear at all in either browser on a computer then the problem could be some privacy, etc software.  This might even just be firewall software that provides privacy or ad blocking features.  One common cause if this type of issue is ZoneAlarm.

If you have a program or browser extension with these features then try to disable them and test the page again.  Did that fix it?  You can often add a site or domain to a trusted list so the feature can be active but not interfere with your page in your browser.

However you still run the risk of the ad not being seen by your clients.  Using different HTML or alternative code to setup the ad (if an alternate is available) would be the only way to "fix" this for everyone.

Let me know how this helps or if you have any questions.
