Adblock not working after reinstalling chrome

Post by carliwelch »

I've had AdBlock installed for the past 2-3 years and never had issues with it. Couple days ago I reinstalled google chrome beacuse I had some issues with it, and I had to reinstall AdBlock aswell. Now it's not working anymore. Not on YouTube, not facebook, nothing.


How can I fix this?

Hello,

Did you already try to disable all other extensions except for AdBlock? This could help. Sometimes the problem lies actually not on Adblock itself but on the other extensions. Try also to restart Chrome a few times. If AdBlock is still there each time, it means one of the extensions you disabled is the cause of the problem. Enable each of the other extensions one at one to see when the problem appears again.

Hope it works

If AdBlock is constantly being uninstalled or disabled every time you open Chrome, it could mean your computer is infected with malware. Malware often looks for and uninstalls extensions that can keep them from doing their nefarious work.
Extensions can become corrupted if something goes wrong in Chrome. One indication of a corrupted extension is that its icon in the Chrome toolbar changes to a jigsaw puzzle piece. Chrome disables corrupted extensions. You can visit chrome://extensions and try to repair a corrupted extension, but it's better just to reinstall it.
