As such, the options I can see are:
1) Try some of the various ad blocking programs/add-ons/etc. I will try Firefox with AdBlock Plus to see if it will help and post back.
2) Do NOT use Comcast's webmail...use an email client (such as Outlook, Outlook Express, Vista Mail, Thunderbird, Eudora, etc) to access your Comcast email account by way of POP.
3) Switch to another email account, such a Gmail or Yahoo or whatever.
4) Complain to Comcast about having to see their advertisements on your PAID account.
5) Just live with it.
#4 can really be done in combination of any of the others. And maybe they will tell you if there is a way to kill it...but my guess is that they will in essense tell you to go "pound sand".

It is possible that some script blocking function might kill it...but then it might also kill the functionality of the email stuff you DO want.
