Issue: the windows 10 web browser download tool is broken
Steps to recreate: open browser download tool, navigate to browser website of choice, run installer.
What should happen?: browser download tool should not be a whiny bitch about being ignored and not taken seriously.

Something like hdbaset or thunderbolt, but using pogo pins and a magnetic locator. Make it flat and round with 4 pairs of terminals so it can connect in four different axes and handshake each pair on connection. Put a hole in the centre so it can be permanently locked in plac with a screw.
I find that ads don't happen on YouTube through the webpage, but are excessive in the app, with every second of third video showing a 5 second ad and long videos showing several at intervals.
This is why I disabled the YouTube app on my phone.
I'm still waiting for YouTube red in the UK, as this is supposed to come free with Google music and make YouTube ad free.
My policy on advertisers is that if I see an ad I'll automatically add the product to my own personal 'do not purchase' list and purchase from one of their competitors.
With this in mind, companies should be glad I run aggressive adblocking software as without, it would be guaranteed that I not purchase from them.
My personal policy on advertising is that I don't ignore it, I make a note of it. If I ever need the advertised product, I'll hunt around for the advertisers competitors and purchase from them instead.
It is therefore, in an advertisers best interest that I keep my adblocking router fully up to date, as there will be a 100% greater possibility that I may purchase their goods or services if I have not been subjected to their ads.
