After I installed AdBlocker on this PC that annoyance is non-existant. It's a safe and free download. I paid a $10 donation before I tried it out. It's well worth that and more. It's so much nicer browsing everywhere now without ANY pop ups or advertisements. The cookies and SPAM related issues are gone. Interest based ads are a pain no more for this OM. My Norton Quick Scan feature finds vy little to detect and remove as far as cookies now.
