AdBlock's announcement tab

For several day now, every time I start a new tab after opening my browser the AdBlock "Announcing the Acceptable Ads program" tab opens too. I've read the content, now how do I get it to stop popping up. It's beginning to feel like an ad itself which defeats the point of the extension to begin with. - I'm using Windows 7 with Chrome Version 45.0.2454.101 m.

    Hi JC,

    AdBlock definitely shouldn't do that. If this page is appearing every time you open Chrome, AdBlock's settings somehow keep getting reset. Here are two common reasons why this might happen:

    • Do you use a disk or file cleaning program such as Ccleaner? If so, make sure it doesn't remove localStorage files or other browser-related files, because it might be deleting AdBlock's settings.
    • Your Chrome profile might have become corrupted. First, try reinstalling AdBlock. You will see the payment page once. If you see it more than once, try creating a new Chrome profile and let us know if that changes anything.
