How do you turn off the aim banner?

How do you get rid or turn off the aim banner? Right now i have this really sort of disturbing image on my aim program that says to click here to zombie yourself. I really don't like this banner, i'm not afraid of it but it just doesn't look like something i would want to look at in the middle of the night. Also think about the audience that is looking at this banner, little kids would be signing on their aim account and all of a sudden freak out when they see an ugly picture of what it would look like if somebody was a zombie. Some may find it funny but i don't think this is the right place to put such ad. Either take it out or let me disable this banner.
