    Where is the Ad Blocker?


    Running Win10. Version: 10.0.18362 Build 18362

    When certain sites are accessed the message appears that I can't watch due to Ad Blocker.
    Now I don't know where this Ad Blocker is ... so can't turn it off for these sites.

    Does Win 10 have a built-in Ad Blocker?
    Where would I look to find an Ad Blocker?

    Thanks,
      My Computer

    Generally, they are in whatever browser you are using. Not a Windows thing, it's a browser isle. Look in your browner options for Extensions or Add-ons, or similar. Usually, there is an Icon up top on the menu/tool bar you can click to whitelist a site. Don't confuse these with Tracking Blockers. If the message says what you posted, then check for them and add these sites as exceptions (whitelist).

    Thx f14tomcat.
    Yep that's what I thought also. However the only add on is Cookie Auto Delete 3.0.2
    And in that I have clicked on Whitelist for these few sites.
    So I'm still in the dark I'm afraid.

    Aside from the top bar of the browser is there anywhere else I might check ... like C.Cleaner for instance?

    Can you post a pic of exactly what you are seeing? That's always helpful, let's us all see what you're seeing, maybe we can see something.

    Ok.... that message may be the only thing that site knows how to say when an attempt is made by it to throw adds or track you is made. What browser are you using.

    It may be distasteful () but try the site in Edge. Starting to sound like tracking protection is on, or the player itself in that site is being blocked.

    Just to test, I went to that site, using FF, worked fine on playing some vids.

    Goodnight.....
