Try clicking on the DNT icon at the top of the page, and a drop-down should appear. Sometimes you might have to click more than once, before it works?.

I use it on Chrome and Firefox, and both seem to work, using the method above.

spuds all i get is a black box "clear skies no tracking found here" a sun set and a few boxes. I tried live chat support at albine not sure if i was dealing with a robot or a person has the person/computerised robot did not seem to grasp answers very well in the end it thought it was a norton clash but with norton disabled still no joy.

might be me not clicking the place, could you post a stepby step from when black drop down box open from the green icon please

On all the browser's (Firefox and Chrome. I haven't tried it on IE), the drop-down list is black with at least three sections showing 'social''ad network''companies', and how many were blocked, and what they were.

If you do not have this, then I would suggest that you un-install the program , then re-install and see if that corrects the problem.

I did no setting up, but you can do because there seems a facility to do that, but after installing I just let the program do its own thing. Looking at the Albine website, there is a Q&A which directs to various answers.

What I have found, is with Chrome which I now use surely for PCA, because I seem to have problems using IE on the PCA website, that 10.027 sites have been blocked since I started using the program last week. With Firefox, which I use for many other daily activities, on a large number of other websites, the block rate was only 1.517 ?.

When I installed DNT, I had the option to download browser versions, and not one that would do all. I could be wrong, but perhaps this is were the problem might possibly be?.

I use it on IE 9. Currently showing 15 sites blocked on PCA site. Over 110,000 blocked in last couple of months. There should be green circular logo with a red/ black surround in top left, to left of the "Home" logo (in IE9). When I click the logo it expands to show in 3 categories the sites blocked and the cumulative total.

Meant top right, to left of home logo.

now got it working on xp after SAS found and deleted "web tracker" adware, w7 with ie9 till at a loss, ran SAS MBAM,CCleaner, disabled norton and ASC.

rebooted might try delete and put back at least i have it working perfect on one computer.

why did norton never find "web tracker" in the scans?
