Thank you for the info.   It worked on my tablet,  but not the laptop.   Any more suggestions.   Huge ad at top and then the AARP banner.  When I scroll banner etc. stays but body of message goes up and up  and up...ha.   I like working with laptop instead of tablet.  Thank you

I don't like that freaking banner either. Have Ad blocker on Windows 8--the banner is still there.

has anyone at AARP paid any attention to this request; JUST MAKE IT SMALLER IF YOU VALUE US AS CONSUMERS THAT PAY ATTENTION. I am choosing the feedback today maybe I will get a response

I know right? I'm running AdBlock Plus, but the dead space (no ad, just tiny letters "advetisement") is still there (Win 7 Pro). I'm also running Avast! so I can kill AARP's tracking cookies (which effectively kills your logon for USAA).

 

It's a pity websites/mobile apps *force* you to accept their tracking cookies in order to use their services. I can see map programs requiring you to turn on your locator, but no one needs to track your browsing.

@ph8322 I'm on a MAc, but think they do have different apps for different platforms; so yeppers, go find yourself the latest AdBlocker for Windows 10.

Does W10 have its own Ad Blocker,  or do I google and just find one?  Are they all the same,  Thank you

@ph8322  Adblocker works well.
