Adblock not blocking

Postby galensdad » Thu Sep 22, 2016 5:35 pm

I have a fairly recent version of AdBlock on my computer. The only problem that I have with it is that I am inundated with ads on a daily basis! What to do?

what version ?

upload example screenshot with the ads you get and also provide links to example pages with ads

scan your system for malware / adware
use malwarebytes antimalware (free version) ==> https://www.malwarebytes.org/
and adwcleaner http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

FTR there are extensions named "AdBlock" and "Adblock Plus" for Edge, and this forum is intended for the latter; anyway, if your ads mostly come from streaming media sites, the problem may be that Edge extensions can't block ads requested by plugin content: viewtopic.php?p=157426#p157426
There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.

the problem may be caused by windows profile corruption, try to create another profile with administrator privileges and then install adblock for edge, it worked for me.
