Jill, I figured out how to delete the content you don't want on your My Yahoo page (not that they provided an obvious way to do that, like being able to 'un-check' options when you are adding new ones).
You have to go to your 'My Yahoo' page and scroll around with your mouse to the bottom, right-hand corner of the offending widget. If you roll over the bottom-right-hand corner, a little 'gear' thing will show up (normally it's hidden; they make you work for it). When you see the gear thing appear, click on it and it ill offer you the option to remove stuff you don't want.
It will NOT let you remove the unwanted ad, however.

I'm also fed up with having to go through multiple windows demanding that I change my password and asking for my phone number. You're never going to get it, and I've been clicking through that garbage for about a year now.
I said 'no.' What part of 'no' does Yahoo not understand?
If I had not had this e-mail address 'from the beginning' I would long since have abandoned Yahoo. I only keep it because everyone knows this address. But I'm sorely tempted to chuck Yahoo finally for good, since My Yahoo doesn't update, they keep demanding my phone number which I'm not going to give, and they change things to make them worse, not better when it comes to e-mail. Plus their 'news' coverage is infamously bad - bad journalism and even bad spelling and grammar. It's like something high school kids do for a project, not something professional.
Maybe it's time to make a change to a better e-mail provider.
