Preferred Solution: Amazon, Google and Microsoft all reportedly pay to circumvent AdBlock Plus

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Twitter is alit today, it seems, with news of Google neutralising AdBlock Plus. The popular extension, originally created by Wladimir Palant in 2006, is used by many to bypass ads hosted on the internet, including the video ads served by Google's video streaming site.

It has drawn the ire of many web publishers and websites alike for allegedly curtailing their revenues significantly. In an attempt to shore up the almost non-existent profits from YouTube, Google might have finally found a way of skirting the extension. Multiple Twitter users are now posting their accounts, including images, of Chrome circumventing the extension's ad-averse net:Click to expand...

Some types of malware will disable Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it first.Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file file and rename it to mysetup.exe.Double-click on mysetup.exe to start the installation.If that did not work, then try renaming and changing the file extension. click this link if you do not see the file extensionRight-click on the mbam-setup.exe file, rename it to mysetup and change the .exe extension to .scr, .com, .pif, or .bat.Then double-click on mysetup.scr (or whatever extension you renamed it) to begin installation.If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files.Right-click on mbam.exe, rename it to myscan.exe.Double-click on myscan.exe to launch the program.If that did not work, then try renaming and change the .exe extension in the same way as noted above.Double-click on myscan.scr (or whatever extension you renamed it) to launch the program.If using Windows Vista, refer to How to Change a File Extension in Windows Vista.Be sure to update MBAM through the program's interface (preferable method) or manually download the definition updates and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Then perform a Quick Scan in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the report in your next reply.Note: MBAM uses Inno Setup instead of the Windows Installer Service to install the program. If installation fails in normal mode, try installing in safe mode. Doing this is usually not advised as MBAM is designed to be at full power when running in normal mode and loses some effectiveness for detection & removal when used in safe mode. For optimal removal, normal mode is recommended so it does not limit the abilities of MBAM. Therefore, after completing a scan it is recommended to uninstall MBAM, then reinstall it in normal mode and perform another Quick Scan.------------------------------------The process of cleaning your computer may require you to temporarily disable some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.NOTE: Before saving MBAM please rename it to save it to your desktop.alternate download link 1alternate download link 2Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.

I believe my computer is infected with a very annoying redirect virus (or two?). When I search a topic on and click a link listed in the search results, about 1 out of every 4 or 5 times, I get redirected to a website staring with "" or "".

My computer was recently infected with the redirect virus as well. I'm guessing there were other infections because one day, my main profile wouldnt load and I got error messages from Windows saying that "Windows could not connect to the Group Policy Client". I tried fixing it, downloaded Malwarebytes, Spyware Doctor, and Webroot, but nothing helped. I ended up reinstalling a clean version of Windows Vista (32 bit, SP1) yesterday (25-Jan-2011).

I am on a Dell Studio 1535 laptop running Windows Vista (32 bit, SP1). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! and google-analytics redirect virus

Hello -
I have two Dell optiplex 7010 desktops that came with Windows 7 pre-loaded.  The end user tried to reimage them with Ghost disks that were not formatted properly.  Consequently the reimage process failed.  The user then tried to use recovery disks, reinstallation disks and a reinstallation thumb drive but has been unsuccessful.
The boot sequence has been changed in bios to put either the cd/dvd drive or the USB drive first.  Regardless, rebooting the computer still brings up the black "Error loading operating system" screen.  He cannot go any further.
We've tried hitting F12 so that it prompts for where to boot, and even when selecting the optical or USB drive, it goes back to the same error.
Any advice on how to get past this?
Thanks for your help in advance.

A:Intel reportedly releasing just two socketed Broadwell CPUs

It often makes you wonder why push Broadwell now, when Haswell has a lot of traction and it's a few months to Skylake. They also included some BGA in the mix for other devices, but pushing a desktop chip seems a bit odd. Given the few months in between them and people unlikely, to drop Haswell unless for lower power systems.

All in all it's negligible power savings, we'd need to obviously see how the integrated graphics fair. It might be a solution for some people, but obviously not everyone is going to see it as a huge importance. It's kinda amusing to me because, I'm looking to replace my mobo / CPU right now. I'd likely sit and wait for Skylake, simply because I'd only be wanting to buy one upgrade. Upgrading is a low priority right now anyways, so there's less inclination to spend right away.

on all versions of IE/& FF & chrome, you can disable the pdf plug in

Ever been annoyed by all those ads and banners on the internet that often take longer to download than everything else on the page? Install Adblock Plus now and get rid of them.

Right-click on a banner and choose "Adblock" from the context menu - the banner won't be downloaded again. Maybe even replace parts of the banner address with star symbols to block similar banners as well. Or you select a filter subscription when Adblock Plus starts up the first time, then even this simple task will usually be unnecessary: the filter subscription will block most advertisements fully automatically.

My default browser is Chrome but I use IE occasionally as a back-up.  I am trying to add Adblock Plus to the latter but this has a different name ("Easy ..") within the IE Gallery.  If I try to add this as an extension the message comes up that I need to have the latest version of IE = 11 for this.  I believe that I already have IE 11 but to be compliant I click on Download IE 11 (excluding Bing and MSN). It then says that it cannot complete the setup operation because IE11 is already installed.  I have been round this loop several times and am getting giddy.  Is there an escape?

A:Adblock Plus for W7 ?

Adblock Plus is an excellent add-on.   I'm not sure what you mean "for W7" as Adblock Plus is attached to browser(s), not OSes.
I have it installed on Firefox, Chrome, and IE (the last of which I virtually never use).  This is on Windows 7 and Windows 10.
One simply installs it via the add-ons/extensions manager for the browser in question.  If you want to be absolutely sure you're getting "the original" just go to the Adblock Plus website in the browser where you want it installed and a button saying "Install for {current browser}" should be presented on the website's main screen.

I have downloaded and used Adblock Plus so far without problems with Chrome - installation was simple and the advantages are obvious I have downloaded IE as a backup and wanted to do the same by taking Adblock Plus from the IE Gallery Much more involved You have to download save and run it as if it was a new program which it seems to be Then in spite of several attempts it won't run install - something to do with the time certificate being out of date most unhelpful Then to cap it all Avast comes on warning that Adblock Plus is a dodgy program that ought to be removed - even though at present it is no more than a stored exe file awaiting activation What is going on - is Adblock Plus just incompatible with IE and is there something else that does the same job and works The choice in the IE Gallery seems to be much more restricted than with Chrome Tks

A:IE 11 and Adblock Plus

I don't use IE but there was something here a few months ago stating that AdBlock was closing down. So I think you'll find a lot of us now use UBlock which does the same thing. That's what I use on Chrome but I haven't used IE for years so I don't know if UBlock is on IE.

As I said in the title no matter what I do I can't get rid of Max Adblock which has practically made the internet unusable on my PC (I'm on my phone now). I've looked up solutions to this but nothing works.
I started off by deleting all extensions in both google chrome and internet explorer. I've tried deleting any files I don't recognize in the control panel, I used adwcleaner and malwarebytes (the latter of which occasionally finds harmful files every couple times I run it). I also started task manager to look for processes that seemed sketchy although didn't find any that were deemed harmful after a quick google search.
However after all this it has only gotten worse. Even upon launching Google Chrome I'm randomly redirected to random sites and get constant popups.
Any help is greatly appreciated

So I'm getting ads on youtube, pop ups, and other annoying junk. I have tried to clean my computer with a multitude of different programs; Malwarebytes Premium, RogueKiller, CCleaner, Registry Recycler, Adwcleaner, and so on.
I've posted logs on another forum and gotten advice to use JRT and FRST but haven't gotten anywhere with those. I didn't get sent any fixlist.txt and I was hoping you would be able to provide me one. Thanks!

I've got Adblock installed on google chrome, and every once in a while it will just stop working (it seems to happen every few weeks). I check my extensions and see that every time this happens, my filter lists are all gone, and I have to re-download them, although once I do adblock is working fine again (at least until it happens again). Does anybody know what might be causing this?

A:Adblock Problems?

Is the Adblock Plus add-on? Not some other.
I'm not that familiar with Chrome but doesn't it update frequently and is it possible to see if the updates and missing block list
can be related? Like, do you know when Chrome updates? Or is it completely silent?
I've used Adblock Plus for years in Firefox and find it flawless and does the job....also customizable. It is Chrome compatible, too.

It looks like you can't get AdBlock Plus and WOT for Opera. So how do you get rid of all the ads,and keep away from bad sites? . I installed Opera because it is the one the Hackers use to be safe from other hackers. But if I can't get rid of the ads I don't think it's worth keeping.

I just downloaded Mozilla Firefox 2 (don't know the exact version, but its the newest, i think.) And i got adblock plus, its acting all wierd, like it will block the image but its still there... and when i go to ad filters i looked at the drop down menu... i saw subscription, anyone know any good ones? And with the Noscript, is there a way u can stop the little bar at the bottom that says: scripts stopped... is there any way to stop that?


A:Firefox, Adblock Plus, And Noscript

Right click on NoScript logo and choose "options". Choose "notifications" tab. Uncheck "show message about blocked script".

Filter subscriptions
Users can add external filtersets. Adblock Plus includes the ability to use one or more external filter subscriptions that are automatically updated. Filterset.G is incompatible with this system, but other filtersets can added by typing their addresses. A list of known Adblock Plus subscriptions is maintained on the Adblock Plus official website.

You may be experiencing a conflict between the NoScript and Adblock Plus addons. Suggest you turn off NoScript and see if you still see the ads. I use Adblock, not Adblock plus, NoScript and Flash block on Firefox l.5 with no problem like you describe.

Hello fellow computophiles,

I can't sign onto Hotmail when I use my faster fox browser. I have disabled the no script and the adblock but I still can't sign in.

WELL ... I can sign in and put in my password but when I click to enter, I come right back to the sign-in page and it sez "please verify your user name and password".

Is there something about Firefox that the hotmail people don't like?

How has your experience been with using edge while having an adblocker? For example with the usual sites like facebook, gmail, youtube, windows central etc and for the more ad heavy ones like torrent sites?
This is for those on insider for pc

A:Experience in Edge with adblock

I like Adblock more than Adblock Plus, simply because it has more options that I need and to not starve ad funded websites.
Webpages such as news pages, YouTube and others load much faster that with Adguard trial in my experience.
Unfortunately, I see ads here and there on some download and online movie sites, and pop up ones too.

Hello all,
A little background...
I run all the updates for firefox add-ons manually, just to keep track of what's going on.
Yesterday, when I did so for Adblock Plus, all the filters came back as "Failed, download failure" instead of "Success!".  I kept playing with it, and eventually it appeared to go through.  I checked again, and the failure appeared again.  From there it was a few repeats of appearing to work, then not. 
Since Ublock Origin uses the same filters (Easylist, etc), I figured I'd try that, and it appears to work, although after updating and selecting purge cache, it shows as out of date.   Anyone else experiencing this?
Also of note, as far as I can tell both add-ons were still blocking things but the update thing has me puzzled...

A:Adblock Plus filters not updating?

Which browser(s) are you seeing FAILED? I just checked in my Firefox browser. I have updates for Adblock Plus set for automatic.
Never had the problem you are having. I only use the Easy list. Perhaps you chose more than one list and one of them is offline.
My log shows the last update was successful 2 days ago.
This bit of info won't help the updating but if you haven't clicked on the ABP icon and chose Filter Preferences and then uncheck the
box next to Allow some non-intrusive advertisements....then you should do that.

I've tried on Chrome, Firefox and IE. None of the browsers display ads on my FaceBook account, and a few other websites. So, there still are webpages where I have no problem seeing the ads.

At first I thought that I didn't set my age and location on FaceBook, and perhaps they couldn't target me in order to display any ads. But my age and location are set, plus, as I said, there are a few other websites where I cannot see any ads.

I then thought I have some kind of AdBlocker installed on Chrome, but there is none. I checked to see if I have the same issue in Firefox and IE, and found that I have the same problem with those browsers as well.

Any suggestion?, please. Not that I'm a huge ads-fan, but there's something obviously wrong with my browsers.

Thank you for taking the time to read. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

The German website Mobile Geeks has investigated and found out that popular advertising blocking extension for various browsers Adblock is actually involved in displaying ads and analyzing your online activity. They do block ads from large companies but also inject ads from some of their partner companies.
According to Mobile Geeks, Adblock switched hands in 2010 and is now owned by a German company Cologne Eyeo GmbH. This company has 15 employees but only 1 free to use product - Adblock. They raise the question - "How do they make money from it to pay 15 employees and still make profit?"

Hello: Having a bit of a problem. I'm doing a trial of NOD32 and initially liked it -- except for the popups. I use Mozilla so added Adblock and began to experience additional slow downs and timeouts with e-mail (Yahoo). Now, I time out on every e-mail, whether from inside Yahoo or from a site on the web. Platform is XP. Wondering if there is a trick to configuring Nod32 and/or Adblock or if anyone can suggest a better popup blocker? Really was tired of fighting Norton and had read and heard good things about NOD32. Would hate to give up on it and won't give up Firefox for anything. Thanks in advance for any help.
