    When you accidentally click an add on a page like Yahoo there seems to be
    no way to stop it opening.
    Clicking stop or Esc doesn't work.
    I'm on a dialup and often click on what I think is blank space only to be
    stuck for a minute or two while an advert page opens.

    Set your home page to a blank page in internet options.
    If ever you click on a link by accident, press [ALT]+[HOME]
    and a blank page will be instantly displayed. You should
    be able to go "back" to the previous page.
