How to turn off Top Stories

I am an Information Security professional, and I not only keep up to date with important developments, I also write some of them. The Top Stories function in LiveSafe is pablum for the ignorant. By the time it announces a real threat, it has already been known world-wide and usually taken care of. The poof articles about how to keep my computer safe are a waste of space and time. I am especially unhappy that it also contains ads.

I find it distracting and annoying that the Top Stories icon fills up with ads and unnecessary information. I try to ignore it, but as the number in red gets higher and higher, I get more annoyed.

I did not ask for this "feature," and I never use it. Is there a way to disable or hide it?

Re: How to turn off Top Stories

Sorry as far as I see the answer is no. There are not options in the settings that I can find nor have I seen it mentioned here.

I will mention it to the program manager when next we talk.
