    I have found that to a great extent the tracking protection lists that you can add via the Add-on section on IE (in the desktop environment) helps deal with the ads.

    The procedure seems to have changed bit with IE11, specifically that the settings reside in Metro IE11:

    That's right; I forgot about this option and apparently it's fairly easy to do on Windows RT. Not bad!

    Don't know if this is a bit late but,
    some things you might want to try, some of which might have been suggested in the previous posts:
    In Desktop IE11
    under Tools in Command Bar -go to internet options -privacy-advanced-put check in box for override automatic cookie settings--third party cookies- block
    under Tools- Manage Add-Ons-Tracking Protection- Get tracking protection lists online

    In Metro IE
    press Windows key then I key
    under settings go to Privacy
    select from given choices

    You mean like whatever was supposed to be in that big blank space to the right. :)

    I know you softened it with a smile, but I don't get your point. Please explain

    This worked great and took all of 10 seconds. I selected the Easy Privacy List and it works great!

    Thanks for posting this! :)
