Only had Win 8 on a machine long enough to decide that it was total crap
(a good 5 minutes)
Had I known about all the Advertising in PAID for apps, wouldn’t have even wasted the time to download it. Looks like Microsoft has become not an innovator but just more slime oozing it’s way down the Evolutionary Ladder.
Gates and Co. have now sunk to the same level as Child Molesters and Littigation Lawyers.

If you want to remove ads from Myce, instructions here -

Install Firefox
Install Adblock add-on and subscribe to a block list.

I know a good way to avoid Metro adds… Don’t use Metro.

Better yet just install Windows7 and avoid all that junk from Windows8 of which you probably got no benefit from to begin with. Get rid of ads just edit your host file

127.0.0.1 xxx.xxxx.xxxx

and save and that will kill those ads and popups…

That is how I do it and no more popups…

Well, I say “down the drain with it!”
