    By Fred Langa

    But the right software and settings, both built-in and add-on, put you back in control.

    Absolutely right about DoNotTrack Plus.

    Unrelated: In IE 9, there's a yellow alert bar at the bottom of the browser which warns if any plugins or toolbars seem to be slowing browser performance. You then have the option to see which ones are the worst and uninstall them.
