Thats not to say its bad software....just sneaky horrible marketing... However in the case of 360 its got a bad rap, becuase it is both dangerous, and marketed sneakily..... Proceed with caution!! is all im saying!!
Will do . BUT I been on it a year with no probs . So touch wood .

Re: Windows 10 again (sorry)

Has anyone had any experience with Ublock? I have searched the web but cannot find any others for windows 10 edge.

Forgot to mention, Microsoft say adblock is free, but when I was installing it yesterday, there were boxes to tick to give a donation, not sure if you can get past that as I then immediately came out of the programme.

Think Microsoft need to look up the meaning of 'freedom of choice', we pay for our computers, now they dictate what will work or not.

Re: Windows 10 again (sorry)

A good friend of ours once told me (she had worked with computers all her adult life)
"Microsoft want you to buy their computers , but want you to have them set how THEY want"
If you go on Firefox, click the logo top left and select "add ons" you can get adblock and adblock plus from there free

They both amalgamate into the one button on your toolbar, easy to switch on and off and if you don't want an ad, click on the button, select "add an element to hide", draw a line around it and it's gone forever

Re: Windows 10 again (sorry)

Ted, I uninstalled firefox, had too many problems with each search engine, showing as untrustworthy, got fed up with it. So back to Edge.

If you go with Ian and install Opera then download this extension

then the chrome extensions will work on Opera

Re: Windows 10 again (sorry)

There are only certain browsers I can use, survey sites I use do not support the lesser known ones. Looks like I might have to go with firefox again, just fed up with it all and trying to sort it all out.
I read on the internet yesterday that windows 10 edge is supportive of ads, they are not joking, every site I use, and have been for years are now full of ads, never used to be. This is causing my usage to go mad again.
