Waiting for extension adblock plus

Postby Waitingforextension » Wed May 27, 2015 10:05 pm

I've seen this program has had this problem before, and it seems to be occurring to me now. I try to load a webpage, and it will sit, and in the bottom left, it says waiting for extension adblock plus. I looked at the task manager, and it seems to be eating 25% of my cpu while adblock is turned on. Meanwhile Firefox while running adblock does not do so. Unless an update occurred some time within the last couple of days, nothing has changed from when it WAS working fine and now.

I have adblock installed on a Firefox browser, where it reads version 2.6.9, while Chrome's is 1.8.12.

My Chrome is version 43.0.2357.81, I'm running Windows 7

Did everything listed, and still had to turn it off to be able to load the website. Also, my Windows is 64 bit and it seems to be every website

Could you disable all your security software (antivirus, firewall ==> keep only windows firewall), optimizing software and test again ?

You could also do a test:
-"install" chrome portable, ABP and test again with that portable version

only to be sure:
scan your system for malware / adware
use malwarebytes antimalware ==> https://www.malwarebytes.org/
and adwcleaner http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

ok, now try removing the original chrome, go to profile and delete manually all the resting folders (if any)
then reinstall chrome, ABP and test again

for the profile location see https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/142059

Reinstalling Chrome seems to have fixed the issue, thank you
