WebRep Chrome Issue
« on: December 17, 2012, 07:35:40 PM »
My OS is Vista x64.

Recently Chrome was taking a very long time to load the first site I tried to visit after it would open with Google as my homepage. After that initial delay things were fine but that delay was bothersome. By disabling the WebRep extension, that long load time is gone, at least for now.

Thought I would post this for others and maybe developers here.

hey are you using the latest version of avast?

latest version  is 7.0.1474.

any other security programs like a third party firewall? that could slow the speed down.

you could try to disable the webrep from chrome and see if that helps.

open up avast interface then  go to additional protection then disable the webrep for chrome. restart chrome.

did it solve your problem?

Yes, I'm using the latest version of Avast and Chrome. Windows firewall. I did disable WebRep as I stated in my post which worked. Did not have this problem as I recall before so maybe it's the latest Chrome version that's the problem. Thanks for replying.

Open your Avast and then go to the "Additional Protection" and "browser protection" WebRep so some icons will appear in browsers, with it being just you clicking "uninstall" now Open your browser and go to the option chrome extensions
Open the folder files and programs> AVAST Software> Avast> WebRep> Chrome and find the file
AswWebRepChrome.crx drag and drop the file to the chrome extensions tab to pop up a window and click ok to add. ready.
check enabled and activated.

Why should I do what you suggest? Is it better than simply disabling WebRep in Chrome?

I was just asking, not challenging, because I don't understand what your suggesting would do. I do appreciate all replies and apologize if I sounded anything but inquisitive.

All that you need to do is GUI>additional protection>browser protection>uninstall the proper plug-in. Nothing more, nothing less.   8)

With all due respect. Isn't your suggestion like going around your elbow to get to your thumb? Just keep it simple.
See my reply above this one. No offense meant.  :)
