Hey,

 

My mom has a windows 8.1 laptop, but is bugged by the annoying ads she gets on youtube, or any site really.

I installed adblock (and adblock plus, and even pro) but it does not work at all.

No ads are being blocked, no matter what site she is visiting.

 

Is adblock broken in windows 8.1, or is there something i am missing?

 

Thanks in advance :)

 

EDIT:

 

 

Ok, i found the problem, she had an extension installed from unisales, this was even rooted in the HDD.

She doesn't know how she got it, but i got rid of it and now we are ad-free thanks to a working adblock :P

Tell your mom to stop clicking on every link. :lol:

 

Seriously though, glad you got it figured out. Those extra extensions that piggyback on can be extremely annoying, so good work on finding it and getting rid of it.

Well my mom doesn't click on anything much, she only uses mail, Facebook, and the occasionally twitch, but she didn't use an adblock because it interfered with Facebook. Now i made it so, that it works on fb as well, so all is good now, hopefully it stays that way.

It works on Windows 8.1, using it now (disabled on OCC of course). Right click on the icon and make sure you have the filters checked and that its even enabled. If both are there, re-install chrome and the extension.

I already found the problem, was just replying to bp9801 :P

Even if i would uninstall chrome and the extension, it still wouldn't wok because the thing that caused it to not work was rooted on the HDD though..

 

 

Guess this can be closed to prevent more confusion.
