Give them the slip!
Use a non-Windows based browser! Believe it or not, it’s still a fairly useful strategy to move to a non-Windows based browser like Opera, if you intend to avoid the hordes of commercialism out there on The Internet.
Forget about Microsoft… You’re on your own. That is, unless you want to dish out more money, of corpse… I did get rid of all the commercials BTW, yet it wasn’t any one thing I did, but a combination of many. Go into Windows Task Manager and disable as many programs from the start-up tab as you can. A note of caution: If you see a start-up program and don’t know what it is, don’t turn it off just yet. You must find out it’s function first. And matching processes up with services can be a long, tedious job. Just shut down whatever doesn’t do anything that you specifically need, yet can identify. OK?

Run all your defense programs often and intermittently, and see if you can launch Opera Metro style, from your start screen if you’re using Window’s 8. Else-wise be vigilant by getting Windows Scheduler to run these programs daily for you… I hope this will help some of you avoid what I’ve been through. And stay away from Bill Gate’s big, dumb, Internet Explorer. I find it more vulnerable than even Firefox.
If you look at the screen-shot above, you’ll see on your bottom right, Opera has a handy magnifier slider, for difficult to read text. Many of you find a problem, especially with screen-shots like this, and have to resort to the ctrl + keys and worry about how much it was magnified by. Well here ya go. And yes, it will import your bookmarks from Explorer or Firefox. Cheers!
