Pop Up Sponsered links When curser hovers

Because of sight problems I have to use the Windows Magnifier programme. When I am on this Forum every time my curser hovers over the double underline a yellow pop up appears and obscures my view. I then have to manouvre the curser to miss the double underlining. Is there a way I can stop these pop up notices appearing. Thanks in advance.

Try using FireFox - it will not show these and has the added advantage of being easily customised to show the text much bigger than normal if you want.

A modified hosts file will also block most of them: click here

Thanks for your help. I will stick with Firefox for now and tick this thread as resolved
