It looks like the 'advertisement tiles' come up even on old profiles, if
the default start page had been left unmodified. If the default
start(home) page had earlier been explicitly set to blank or to some
other site, as I had done in one of my systems, the 'advertisement
tiles' do not come up, unless you go click that 'gear' on the top right
in a tab, and select 'enhanced' or 'classic'.

By the way, anyone know why 'enhanced' and 'classic' behave the same ?
