Cannot access internet while AdMuncher is running

Postby GaydosJ » Wed Sep 21, 2011 11:42 pm

As of this morning (it was working fine last night), I cannot view any web pages with ad muncher running. I originally thought I had a virus, so I uninstalled my virus protection. Then I thought it was a firewall issue, so I disabled firewall. Then I *shutdown* ad muncher, and it works again. Ad Muncher is set to all the default settings, so it is nothing I have set. Ad Muncher cannot even be running or my internet pages won't load. I've set it to disable filtering and it still doesn't work.

I am using Ad Muncher v4.92 Build 32700/3726.

This sounds very similar to the following post: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=13340
Was there a fix to that solution?

Please let me know what information you need and I will be glad to provide it.

It's not ad Muncher itself.

it's related to something else you have installed.

Did you Install anything recently?

Like Trusteer Rapport?

I don't know what you mean it's not ad muncher when the web pages load when admuncher is shut down, but ok...

No I haven't installed anything recently. The last thing I installed was a Steam game about 3 weeks ago. Nothing has changed since then besides patches for MMO games, and those don't affect firefox/IE.

I just uninstalled ad muncher, rebooted and attempted reinstall. The moment I got to the "enter your license information" type screen, firefox/IE stopped loading pages. :(

Something else on your computer is blocking Ad Muncher.

Ad Muncher alone will never block Internet access.

you need to find the culprit with trial and error.
