1. In Internet Explorer right click on the top of the window and select the "Menu Bar" button.
2. Go to the menu "Tools" and select "Manage Add Ons":
3. Under the dialogue box that comes up, in the lower left hand corner there is an option that says "Manage Add Ons And Extensions". *NOTE*: If Internet Explorer is not your default web browser, you will need to manually point Internet Explorer to this address: http://www.iegallery.com/PinnedSites
4. In the web page that comes up, select "Tracking Protection Lists", then select "Easy List". This is the same "Easy List" script that is the most popular with users of Firefox and the Ad Block Plus software.
This will require a restart of Internet Explorer, but you're done. No more ads!
