Advertisements on the screen

Hello,
I've brought Kindle 3 Wi-Fi and my sister used wireless for downloading some free stuff and after that, advertisements came on the Home screen and as screensavers. I want to get rid of them, but don't know how. Can everyone help?

If it's the new Kindle 4 you pay $30 to Amazon on your MYK page and it will remove the Ads. If it's the Kindle Keyboard model. You just have to live with it. The offers are well worth it though. You get all kinds of discounts and even free stuff.

If you are in the 30 day return window, you can send it back to Amazon and then buy a K3 WiFi that is not a special offer version. It will cost you more though.

I haven't tried this...so, use at own risk, your mileage may vary, yadda yadda yadda... But, it may work. http://juanchorossi.com/remove-kindle3-screensavers/
