Ever since ATT upgraded their home page and email I've noticed ads showing up.  What can I do to get rid of them?

Use Firefox with the NoScript plug in.  You won't see any ads, but you will have to allow sites to use scripting for a lot of things.  Provided you don't enable the ad scripts, most likely, you won't see them.

Thanks, BC Advisor,

 

I do use Firefox and I'll look for the NoScript plug in.
