      Yahoo pop up ads...

      Can anyone tell me an easy way of stopping those B****Y annoying pop up banner ads which keep appearing in my Yahoo inbox...?

      I have engaged Adblocker but, for some reason, when it is running there is difficulty in entering text.

      I didn't ask for them, don't want them and want to get rid of them....

      Notepad, or any other text editor, but make sure you save it as hosts, not hosts.txt and you will need admin privileges to save it.
