Adblock failed to work like before

Post by Toon » Wed Aug 19, 2015 8:36 am

'Adblock' and 'adblock plus' always worked very well for me. But suddenly, just like that, it stopped blocking all ads, pop-ups, etc.. Every click i make on a new page leads to another tab with some "millionaire" trying to help me become rich too. Also half of the tab i was using is covered with gray boxes (also ads) which can be clicked away but if not lucky, this leads to another tab. Adblock still tells me an amount of ads it is blocking but clearly it's not blocking all of them. I tried the walkthrough from adblock itself: 'report add' but that could only tell me there is a problem with the filters. I also use avast free antivirus software and eset NOD32 antivirus.

This is probably some sort of malware.
