    Can't uninstall Add blockers. Help


    Hello to everybody,
    Several sites are asking me to disable my add blocker while visiting them.
    Problem is that I can't find any bocker on my system (Win10 64 bits v. 20H2 19042.804).
    Where they are stored?
    I recenty started using Kaspersky Total Security as my AV. Can one of its settings be the culprit?
    Any help will be much appreciated.
    Cheers,
    Flores

    Hi, which browser?
    It will either be an option in that browser, specific to it, or an add-on you have added.
    In the latter case you will need to know how to disable, configure or uninstall add-ons for that browser.

    Hi, dalchina.

    I'm using Chrome, and there are no add-blockers add-ons installed as extensions.
    Thanks.

    Check in Options > Privacy and Security (or w/e Chrome calls it) most browsers these days have "built in" ad blockers.
    This is what they look like in Firefox, for example...

    This is not an add-on, but built into Firefox.

    Chrome includes its own as I suggested. A search for "Chrome's own ad blocker" offers
    See a site by turning off Chrome's ad blocker - Computer - Google Chrome Help

    Do you have Malwarebytes Browser Guard installed or similar? It could also be a VPN.

    Hello Fabler2,

    Thanks for helping.
    I don't have the Malwarebytes installed, and my Kaspersky's VPN is switched off.
