Can't view advertisements on Web page

I am using Windows XP but I am having problems connecting to some Web pages. For example this Web page on the right side has some advertisements and I do not see them. On a different computer using Windows 98, when I right click on the "ad" and properties it shows as Hypertext protocol. On my XP computer it shows "unknown" protocol.
