Anyone notice that there popups like when youve just sent an e-mail or on the signing out popup there seems to be alot of adverts on them now,

How for will this go? Will even my aol icon on my desktop have an advert on it soon?

That was the main reason I got rid of AOL recently. All the adverts and popups were doing my head in.

Maybe we won't have long to worry about it if AOL uk is sold off.

Didnt know they were being sold off,
Hopefully the new company that buy them sort out this adverts thing as its one of my pet hates grrrrrrr!!!!!

Ditch AOL and use Firefox with its various adblocking extensions. I never see an ad. It's wonderful.

wolfie3000, I am getting the same as you,and yesterday when i clicked off a pop up another 1 was underneath it ! Way too many now, i even have "block pop ups" ticked .

I'm no longer with AOL but when I stopped using their browser and used Firefox instead, I no longer saw any adverts (as has already been mentioned).

I'm afraid that I'm the same as fourm member, in that I only see what I want to see, and the adverts / popups don't bother me at all, and I still like Aol.

Dont get me wrong i like AOL,s browser but they do take liberties with the adverts.
