Script blocker is it working
« on: July 15, 2005, 04:05:51 AM »
Hi

This problem has occured twice in 3 weeks.
Script blocker does not record any web sights you view.
I tried repair avast, checked everything i can think of.

The only way i have got it to work again is a complete uninstall and reinstall.

This is getting to be a pain as i use dialup .
Anyone got any ideas what is causing this.

Using WindowsXP Service pack2
Cheers

Are you really talking about Script Blocker (not WebShield)?
Aren't you using FireFox? (Script Blocker doesn't work in FireFox).

Thanks

Hi Vlk
Yep i am talking about Script Blocker .
I use firefox but my wife and kids mainly use IE as they don't like firefox.

Script Blocker cannot work with Firefox: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=14879.msg125840#msg125840

Hi  Tech
I know firefox dosn't work with "Script Blocker".
But both times Script blocker did not work i was using IE, my wife and kids use IE all the time.

Once i uninstalled and reinstalled avast Script blocker started working again.

I suggest you add a password to avast! to avoid any other in your family (knowing or not what they're doing) chang avast! providers settings  ;)

Thanks Tech
