#24 I didn't actually install Opera...

Heh, you made it through the applaing quality control and grammar then ;)

The version of Opera I used was preinstalled (for some reason we have IE and the adware version of Opera installed on our Windows computers and Mozilla on the Linux computers (I guess someone in computer-services likes Opera), so obviously when I'm forced to use Windows (for the maths packages no one bothered to install under Linux usually) I use Opera rather than IE. Therefore I didn't see any of the install options. Once I found the adverts options in preferences I didn't notice anything obvious to get rid of blinking adverts but I probably didn't look very hard. Having said that, I wouldn't expect most people to find the prefs panel at all...
