What happened to Avast Web Rep?
« on: October 11, 2012, 06:53:02 AM »
SiteAdvisor is working, WOT is working but all of a sudden, Avast Web Rep isn't working in any of my browsers. I'm in Chrome right now and the Web Rep icon is lit up green in the title bar and looks like it's working; it is enabled on the extension page. But when I do a search it is not working.

I just tried it again to make sure, and it is not working. It was previously, but no longer. And the strangest part is that the icon is lit up, not grayed out or anything. By all appearances it should be working.

Same problem......on XP SP3  running AIS .1466  with 121011-0 update using latest Chrome, Web Rep appears green on browser, but NOT on search results like others reported above. At least for me, problem showed up with the latest def update this morning. All the correct boxes for Web Rep are turned on in Avast and Chrome and unchecking/rechecking boxes didn't solve issue.

No problem on my XP Pro system with the beta build 7.0.1469 for me with firefox 16.0 for Yahoo or Google searches.

Just checked my win7 netbook with avast 7.0.1466 with firefox 16.0 and strangely it doesn't work there, some inconsistency here (as in others also reporting its working and others not working.)
