Hi Murray
I'm a long time registered user of AdMuncher, but have hit a problem.
Avast anti virus is telling me that the latest 4.72 version of Ad Muncher has a virus. Specifically the trojan Win32:Trojan-gen {Other}
It has forced me to delete or put both teh AdMunch.exe and the uninstaller into its virus chest!
When I try to download the install program from your site, Avast will not let me proceed, telling me that the installer has the trojan.
I've sent tehm a report telling them that I cannot see how this is possible.
Have you any ideas?
Jim

This is a false positive.

Ad Muncher can't be infected with a virus without it failing to load and letting you know of the infection.

Avast needs to fix their detection, for now you'll have to exclude Ad Muncher until they do.
That's not an ad blocker... THIS is an ad blocker.

No bovines were harmed in the making of this program.

My first popup stopper blocked too much.
My second popup stopper didn't block enough.
Ad Muncher was juuuuust right.

Can't give a specific date sorry. v4.72 is a great release and hasn't presented any real show-stopper bugs requiring a quick v4.73 release, so we are taking the oportunity to work on some bigger features for upcoming releases. Things we are working on include a new configuration GUI (with a much improved layout), a web interface for configuration, language pack support, new filter list format, etc, while of course finishing up work on 64-bit filtering support for 4.73.

Stay tuned, we'll have some interesting releases coming up, and we'll do everything we can to get them out as soon as possible :-)

I have been tempted to buy a Mac, but I won't until there's an Ad Muncher for it. Absolutely flawless software; keep it up and good luck!

Filtering will not be any faster, the only changes will be Ad Muncher will be able to filter 64-bit programs and our installer will be about 100kb bigger - *sigh*
