Hi Sir or Madam,

I would like to assist you regarding this issue.

What is your web browser? (internet explorer , Firefox , opera)

Did you try the blocking pop-ups for such ads?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Apparently the ad is gone. I was frustrated in getting to someone to help, and did not feel I should pay to get an ad deleted that you were receiving money to put on my computer. I'll try to block all future pop-up ads. Saying it was a pop-up may be a misnomer, since it was there to stay.


thanks for your help. The ad seems to be gone.

I use Internet Explorer....Not sure how to use block. Do I go into the Junk mail and request block on all pop-up ads that deface my e-mail page?

Open Internet Explorer.

Click the Tools button, and then click Pop-up Blocker.

To turn on Pop-up Blocker, click Turn on Pop-up Blocker.

It will block all the unwanted pop up ads.
