Q: msn.com pop up ads are so annoying

Annoying pop-up ads without opt-out capability are cluttering my screen when I use msn.com.  I tried with IE9 and Firefox and both browsers have this issue when defaulting to msn.com for home page.  I've tried all ways to fix this problem without success.

[Original title: msn.com pop up ads are so annoying.  Please tell me how to remove them.  I've tried everything.  It happens even when I use a browser other than IE9  so seems to be linked with MSN.]
