Assuming that you're running Windows if you're making attempts with IE7? I had a similar problem with the previous version of the page, where my ISP was attempting to insert ads into pages that I visited frequently. Their interception code wasn't compatible with the PHP board, so I had to go and block the address where the ads were coming from. After rebooting and opening only GamesX, run the 'netstat' command at a prompt window to see what web connections are open. You might be surprised to see what you're connecting too.
