I am new to BTYahoo on Windows 8 and find the adverts and popups etc highly obtrusive and sometimes offensive. Can someone advise me how to remove them please
Download and use the Firefox web browser, then install the free Adblock Plus add on.
Alternativly, use an e-mail client like Thunderbird, to read your mail.

As well as KB's suggestions, Google Chrome also works well with AdBlock. There's also one called Simple Adblock for Internet Explorer but it seems to die after a while.
Disabling FLASH in your web browser will save you some of the distractions of adverts and will also save you substantial amounts of your broadband allowance (as most sites have distracting adverts and even pop-up videos nowadays, very annoying)
in Internet Explorer 7 and 8
go to Tools, Internet Options, a new panel opens. Select Programs, towards the bottom of the page there is a manage ad ons button, click that. Find Shockwave and mark it as disabled.
In Chrome, type plug ins in the address bar
Bookmark it because it makes it very much quicker to re-enable it if you need or want to
Navigate to Adobe Flash Player and check the disable box
Don't have the details for other browsers but I am sure you can find them on google or ask in here.
I reckon I save 10% of my allowance by disabling flash and the little ads aren't half as distracting.
