      To hide games you need to have the hide “Games and Apps” option ticked.

      To hide the Trending Box, you need to have the hide “Trending Topics” option ticked

    I upgraded to the 9.7.0 and now the “similar to” offer box is showing up again. Is there a special fix for this?

    It seems impossible to get rid of the “Similar To” box. I’ve followed all directions, but nothing eliminates it. Grrrrrr . . .
