Is there any way on Windows 8 (like hosts file) or Internet Explorer 10 to get rid of ads? I've newer used any ad blocker, but now I'm getting really tired on those.

Yes, there are TPLs up for download to do that. Hold on a sec, and let me go grab you a link.

EDIT: Here you go. http://www.iegallery...protectionlists

I use EasyList, and Fanboy's AdBlock.

MS has a few TPLs up, I have two from their list up and they block all the ads so far.

This should be the link. I run the PrivacyChoice - all companies list and the EasyList Standard. They've added more since I checked last time though so give them a go, you can have as many as you want loaded anyways.

Is it possible to block vídeo ads, like AdBlock does in Chrome? Also, any functional way to have a "click to play flash content" like in Chrome?

I like Chrome, but on my low-voltage Core i3 laptop, IE10 is definitely faster, probably due to GPU acceleration.
