Windows 7: Turning off volume during ads on websites.

Turning off volume during ads on websites.

I have noticed that when I visit a new website and there is an ad on the page that I cannot turn off the volume.

It will work (=mute) for a short while (seconds) but the volume switches itself back on .

This only happens (to my knowledge ) when these ads are playing.
Do they have some sort of an overide built into them ?

How can I stop this short of pulling out the audio cable (which the computer mightn't like)?

I use my mute button on my keyboard.

thanks
So do I but the websites seem to keep turning it back on after a second or two.
I am sure if I went into Control Panel that it would be more satisfactory but that would take longer - and I only want to turn the volume off temporarily.

I really don't know how a website could control your mute.
