I have just downloaded Adblock. Not sure if it's going to work. But hope so. Thanks. My partner has a different problem which I shall start afresh as a new query. It's to do with downloading a new version of Adobe FlashReader and having done so it ruins everything because you can't read U-tube without adverts appearing over it in the wrong places.
You could alternatively use Windows Live Mail instead of logging in to the Hotmail website... no ads period that way.
Thanks. Good idea to change the mail server. Thanks again. It had crossed my mind. I think trying an alternative may help greatly.
