I'm having the exact same problem - when WebRep is on it messes up Google Reader. (Chrome/Win7)

I disabled WebRep and Google Reader works fine.

My question is: What is WebRep and is it vital for it to be running. My basic research tells me it's a rather lightweight add-on to avast - am I mistaken, or am I still fully protected by Avast with WebRep turned off? (I'm running the Pro version of Avast).

Thanks for your help.

I was having the same problem and just found out from the google chrome help forum that it is Webrep causing the issue. I also use IE9 and it doesn't seem to affect that. Anyone know why this happens and if avast are likely to fix it? Only ask because I would rather use chrome than IE9 and don't want to keep switching Webrep off.

Hi Surfer75, I see you're a noob like me... ;) I have been having problems with my browsers and ended up here while checking add-ons. I just wanted to say that if Avast WebRep is causing you problems you don't need to keep turning it off, you can just remove/uninstall it.  :)
I am just going to turn mine off for now and see if it makes any difference, I keep getting what appears to be connection problems but my daughter's connection is fine... ::)

I don't know if language has anything to do with your problem
but as you can see in English, there isn't any problem.

I have this problem too and it does seem some of you are missing the point or getting a little confused.

Most of you saying that you don't have a problem with this issue that is because you are using the Expanded View going by some images here as opposed to the view we are all having problems with which is the List View.  It is a clear and obvious issue but the problem is that I don't know if it is Avast WebRep or Google Reader causing the issue, however, there is clearly a conflict between them both.


Running

Windows 7 Ultimate X64 Service Pack 1
Google Chrome Latest Version
Avast Internet Security
1 other Extension - Adblock

Turning on WebRep causes Google Reader to not format its lists correctly in Chrome on Win 7

Same problem here. Removing WebRep fixes the problem.

I'm on XP SP3, Avast 6.0.1367 and Chrome 17.0.953.56
