    I use windows 98 and more and more when signing in some type of ads come on in the middle of the screen. Until you click " No Thanks" you cannot proceed. How can i permanently arrange that these ads do not even pop on the screen?

    If you have to click on " No Thanks" you need to get an ISP other than AOL.
