I checked the other post to be sure it was not the same issue. I have windows vista and have always used yahoo e-mail. Sometime late summer/early fall an ad banner showed up above the list of e-mails in my in box. Although annoying, it wasn't a problem. Now for the last week, the ad banner shows up over my 3rd or 4th e-mail from the top of the inbox and jumps around. If I want to open one of those e-mails, of course I end up clicking the banner. If I go from the bottom of the inbox, when I get to the last 2 e-mails, it's jumping on them and I can't really read who they are from. When I get down to 1 single e-mail in my inbox, I can't see it at all. I only know it's there because to the left on my list of "inbox, sent, "etc, it shows 1. I thought I'd delete all, and get to it from my deleted folder, but the dang jumping ad banner is there too. Same thing. Is there anyone that can tell me how to get rid of this ad banner or at least move it back up to the top where it used to sit without moving around over my e-mail? I've tried twice to call yahoo only to be left on hold for ever both times. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Go to the Chrome Web Store and add the AdBlock extension. That should get rid of the ads.

I appreciate the answer. Not to be a pain in the butt here...it says the app can "access your data on all websites" and "access your tabs and browsing activity" Is this safe? I do some shopping and bill paying on line. Not a lot, but not sure I want an app that can access data. I don't care about browsing activity. Thanks

Does it say anything about secure sites like banks, Paypal etc.? Those can't be accessed. Those terms are standard for most apps.
