With Win7 using Mozilla Firefox and an add on Adblock Plus. It removed them from the corner to center of the page. I believe the MSN page is most of the problem. I don't get Taboola anywhere else. I've looked in my program list. I didn't see it or any unwanted programs there-that I know of.

A friend is having the same problem but different circumstances. She didn't have Taboola in her FF settings. It wasn't in installed program section. Using Ad Block Plus moved the ads from the sides of the page to the center of the page. I ran her Malwarebytes scan myself. Taboola is still there. With the heading "Ads You May Like". When we signed in to her account there is a thing called Microsoft Personalized Ads with a toggle On/Off. Which made no difference, unless I had it set wrong.  I tried to suggest she use another home page. It seems it being MS they are in control of what goes on their page.
