WordPress site advertisements problem running on front page

  1. I do not want these running on the site actively. I am in a free domain, and I have never experienced advertisement problems on the front page before.

    The blog I need help with is myminxmac.wordpress.com.

  2. Unless you purchase a Personal plan http://wordpress.com/pricing there will be ads placed by WordPress.COM on your site.

  3. I am not running an AdBlocker and I do not see ads on your site at http://myminxmac.wordpress.com/

    To off-set the costs of providing free hosting to millions of bloggers, WordPress.com has been running advertising on our free hosted blogs since 2006. If the ads you see are found at the end of blog posts then provided you see this small About These Ads link what you are seeing is WordPress.com generated advertising. http://en.wordpress.com/about-these-ads/

    Any other ads appearing to you are not placed by WordPress.com. You have an issue on your browser or computer. They are being placed there by software on your own computer, unfortunately. These ads are sometimes caused by malware or a virus, but more often it is due to a browser extension or toolbar that you may have installed in your browser.

    These sites have further explanation and suggestions for eliminating the ads:
