DELLís Own Pop-Up Kills All the Fun of Web Surfing

In reply to Douglas K. van Duyne
Dell computer is cheap all right. But I will NOT buy another one, becomes it does not work. Donít blame the manufacturer. Dell intentionally booby-trapped its own merchandise, so that I have to spend 60% of my surf time to clear Dellís pop-upsóabout 15 seconds of interruption after every 10 seconds of reading.
There is a link on Dell's pop-up, purportedly explaining "What's this". But it contains false information about "how to disable it." I called Dell's tech, and spent one hour of my time (and his time) to have it disabled.
A few weeks later, the pop-ups came back. I don't have another hour to spend every month. So what did Dell actually gain? Not another sale!

Salesforce Commerce Solution Guide
When using a search engine, how often do you look beyond the first page of results?
Never -- There's always enough information on the first page to meet my needs.
Rarely -- There's usually enough on the first page, but sometimes I want to see more.
Occasionally -- If there are too many paid-for results, or if I don't find an answer on the first page.
Often -- Even if there's enough information on the first page, I like to know what else is available.
Always -- First page search results are rigged; I don't want to be limited to what an algorithm highlights.
