    From where do you want to remove it? Has it installed itself? Are you talking Outlook.com or the e-mail client Microsoft Outlook?

    Ad blocker, HOSTS file or use a different browser.

    Do you think that you might have clicked on the 'Upgrade to Premium' banner at the bottom of the email folders window in outlook.com/hotmail.com?

    As far as I know, Outlook premium is a paid-for service so if you have it then you must have signed up to it and paid for it somehow.

    If you are seeing the 'Upgrade to Premium' banner at the bottom of your folders then it's not installed yet and nothing to worry about.
    And No, you can't easily remove that banner, even with an ad-blocker as it's not really an Ad like those on the right-hand side of the page so you might just have to get used to it - I use outlook.com a lot and that banner is now pretty much invisible to me as I just ignore it.

    Hope this helps
