I downloaded "ad block" and had it running. I inadvertanly disabled it.
Can someone please tell me how to "activate" it again? Can't seem to find anyway to do it.

Thanks

Hey, pinegum, I would be glad to help you!

 

Do you mind telling me what browser you are using?

You should be able to re-enable most adblocking extensions by clicking on its icon to the right of the address bar.

Sniper,
I want to enable ad block for all websites. I don't understand how to use your suggestion. Don't see anything to the right of the address bar to "click"

Under IE, you can re-enable your adblocker following these instructions

  • Open IE, and click the tools menu, then manage add-ons
  • Under show, choose all add-ons
  • Select your adblocker, then click enable

This should work, but if it doesn't, feel free to ask for further assistance!
