google chrome keeps loosing adblock - using win xp pro

  SANAP 13:47 31 Mar 2014

I use chrome as the default browser but its beginning to get more and more irritating. However, I dont know whether its me as the user is the cause ie doing something stupid.

I add adblock pro and I just follow the prompts. Initially a little icon will appear on right side of browser and it works no ads. Recently the little icon keeps disappearing and I have to keep adding it. I have changed my modus operandi slightly in that I have dual boot working and close down xp pro ie power off and power back on. I have win 7 on other HDD and I am using IE11 for the time being as its pretty nifty. I have chrome as well but not noticed if it looses adblock as well. I will keep an eye on it.

Is there anyway I can install adblock with xp pro and make it stayinstalled?

Perhaps of no help, but I have used Adblock Plus with all my browser's for ages, and never had any problems yet.

I think pop-ups blocker adguard can be of good help for you because I found it much better than adblock chrome.
