Webrep not working in Chrome
« on: December 26, 2011, 06:09:25 AM »
I have just installed Avast free on my new computer and Webrep works on Firefox and IE, but not Google Chrome. It says it is installed for Chrome from within Avast, but doesn't show up as an extension in Chrome itself. I've searched the forums, tried uninstalling the Chrome webrep utility from within Avast, tried reinstalling, and it hasn't worked. In fact, everything I've tried hasn't worked.

If it helps, I'm on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

Mine is working... Is it because I'm on 32 bits? ???

It's working fine on 64bit here
(but oddly not if I run Chrome in the Avast Sandbox).

@pilot2fly, @Tech, what's your Chrome version?
I heard WebRep isn't loaded in 16.x version, can you confirm it?

Yes, I'm running version 16 of Chrome. Really don't understand what is going on. Works fine on Firefox and IE.

That works. Thanks!
Your welcome but it was "joe_monster" who posted the tip.
I just tried it and was happy, like you, to discover how easy it was to fix
the installation problem. :)
