I am also finding I have to turn on AdBlock in S&P Center settings every time I use ASB 89. (90 not yet available to me). Getting quite annoying.

The alternative is doing a great job. https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=256094.msg1597559#msg1597559

I got this far. What does this mean? There is no button labeled "background.html" and no adblock panel. The instructions are not clear.

"Click the "background.html" button in the adblock panel
After you expand the window, you can press the "Storage explorer" button"

When all else fails, REBOOT. :)

Okay, it seems to be working on YouTube so the ads don't interrupt the music, but I just set it to strict because I was still getting a ton of ads on other websites, and even on strict multiple ads are coming up.
When is Avast going to fix this?

I've read everyone's posts and I'm sending my issue to see if I can get help. Version is current, strict is enabled. I had a Windows update pushed to laptop May 6th. Since then AdBlock is not blocking anything anywhere. I don't understand what I'm seeing if I do the developer tools (which is not in the more tools section btw), but in Avast dashboard(?) AdBlock is on and set to strict. I had 3 sites that were in the allowed list before Windows update, now they're gone from AdBlock list. HUH? Why does Microsoft mess everything up!?

You'll find Developer Tools in Extensions.
According to your Diagnostics, Avast Ad Bloc is running.
