Annoying New Pop Up Window

Is anybody else out there getting that annoying "AOL Search" window when you first sign on to AOL?  It allows you to go right into a Goggle Search. You can always click the little "x" up in the right hand corner and get rid of it temporarily but if you want to get rid of it for good...here's the simple instructions.  I tried it and it worked for me.

Here's the instructions for sending this pop up to Mars;

As of the last AOL update now we all have a popup search window when we sign on.  The easy way to stop it:
 
Go to Keyword "Search Window"
 
A little window will appear with a button "Opt Out" just click on it
 
You have to do this on each of the names on the computer, and if you have more than one computer, on each computer
