America Online members may find that upon arriving at their email home page, the popup ads start appearing quickly. You can easily delete these ads from your AOL email page, but it will take a few steps to navigate your way through the Settings and Marketing menus. Once you have saved your new preferences, the ads will be deleted and you will not have to see them again unless you change your preferences back to the original settings.
