Avast blocks Adsense in my blogs
« on: December 09, 2013, 06:05:37 AM »
I am a blogger who switched to Avast after using Kaspersky for more than 4 years. After installing Avast I noticed that it blocks the Adsense ads in my blogs. I disabled the Avast ad-don/extension on both browsers (Internet Explorer/Chrome) but this did not help.

By any chance have AdBlock Plus installed? This offers privacy protection as well these days.
BTW: Avast is no adblocker, it only blocks malicious ads that rever to harmful sites/malware/scareware.

Any change chance we could get an example url of one of your blogs to double check?

Hi propheticus,

Thank you for the prompt reply,

1. I haven't installed any Ad blockers.

2. There's no problem when the site is viewed with the portable versions of Chrome and Firefox, (www.yoshlk.com)

3. I checked the same URLs in my 2 laptops which also run Avast, and ads appear without any issue, meaning you are correct.

As a last resolution I will try re installing Chrome and report back.

There appears to be some issues...http://zulu.zscaler.com/submission/show/12f7ee5c7969b65c7215bd708c48dbb9-1386598983

However on several other online scanners failed to show anything malicious.
Dell Inspiron, Win10x64--HP Envy Win10x64--Both systems Avast Free v17.9.2322, Comodo Firewall v8.2 w/D+, MalwareBytes v3.0, OpenDNS, Super Anti-Spyware, Spyware Blaster, MCShield, Unchecky, Vivaldi Browser and, various browser security tools.

"Look before you leap!" Use online scanners before you click on any link.

Here the online security plugin is blocking doubleclick ad-tracking, but disabling it does enable me to see the ads. Odd that this does not work for you. Is your Avast version up-to-date? (20014.9.0.2008)

Regarding web page "http://www.gocek.org/godpoll/default.aspx".

I am running Avast Free 2014.9.0.2011 under Windows 8.1. The page shows AdSense ads correctly in MSIE 11 when the Avast add-on is enabled or disabled.

Firefox 26.0 does NOT show the ads when the add-on is enabled, "avast! Online Security 9.0.2011.70". Firefox shows the ads when the Avast add-on is disabled.

For some reason Chrome Version "31.0.1650.63 m" does not have the add-on. For all three browsers, I use very few add-ons. My problem seems to be with Firefox when the Avast add-on is enabled.
