Hi

Recently I have been getting notices from different web sites about ad blocking software and asking me to white list their site, 

I have looked for ad blocking software and I don't believe I have any (that I know of) listed in my programs list, I have not down loaded any.

 

Has there been a Microsoft update that has added a ad blocker? 

I have Kaspersky internet security, does it have an ad blocker? (I don't see one)

Facebook has been a problem lately (freezing, not loading), could a ad blocker be the cause?

 

Any programs I could run to find and list ad blocker on my system I don't know of?

 

Thanks

maranatha

Most ad blockers show a icon on the top right of the browser.

If you have not installed one then you might be using a built in block like internet explorer uses.

 

O/S and browser info would be helpful if you have them.

Kaspersky has a "anti banner" blocker...

Have you backed up today? Did you backup your backup?

Hi

Windows7

IE 11.

 

"might be using a built in block like internet explorer uses"

Is there a way to locate this and maybe disable it to check if this is the problem?

 

Thanks

The Options portion of your browser should reveal all chosen/possible settings that you can change. 

 

You can use the MiniTooBox and Speccy Data to track processes on your system.

 

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
 
post-33068-0-86653600-1480692866_thumb.j

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

In ie look for the "gear" top right under red x and click it.

Then Internet options and then "privacy"  look down to 2nd to last and you should see pop-up blocker.

If you are using another browser besides IE please post which one you are using.

Hi

Thanks everyone, so it seems it was Kaspersky's Anti Banner that may have been causing the problem.

I'll follow up if this is not the case.
