Silently clicking on porn ads you can't even see – this could be you...

Which will be no help at all in your defence if the police find a child porn image from those ads in your cache - if you are in possession of it then you are guilty.

Oft repeated, but incorrect. Look up the law in question, it says things like "that the defendant knowingly or deliberately did ...". Showing that there is reasonable doubt that you knowingly or deliberately obtained the nasty pictures, for example by demonstrating the presence of malware such as mentioned in the article, and the pictures only being in such locations as would be caused by such malware, would indeed constitute an effective defence.
