ZONE ALARM AD BLOCKER DOESN'T WORK WITH AVANT

I've been using Avant for over month. I now have v10.0 build 131. Seeing banners and animated ads I assumed that sites found a way around ad blockers such as my Zone Alarm Pro. But for the **** of it I tried to open an animated gif in IE... and it would not load because ZA was, in fact, working. Is ...

Address Bar Won't Show Correct Address

I'm running Avant 10.0 build 35. Today it stopped showing correct addresses in the address bar. It shows the correct address when a tab is first opened.... but after no matter what link I open... the address stays the same. For example I opened up this link from FAVs http://forum.avantbrowser.com/vi...

HELP! "the web page could not be saved..." ERROR

It must have been after I installed SP2 last fall that IE occasionally crashed while I tried to save web pages in the mht format. Since I uninstalled SP2 the crashing has stopped but I get this new error: "the web page could not be saved to the selected location". For a while I thought Avant was imm...

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that over time, that space will be returned. That's where Windows stores everything it needs to do a system restore... so, yeah, the bigger the change, the bigger those files will eventually be. If you want to keep some of that space, I'd suggest changin...

But where uninstalling SP2 was supposed to free up a gig of HD space... all the subsequent fixes have taken up 3 gigs more.... probably because of all the restore/uninstall files. Yup... just as I predicted in my thesis... I found nearly 5 gigs of new files created after I uninstalled SP2 in my C:\...

I don't understand why View > Text Size can't be used for this? (CTRL-scroll works as a shortcut.) Of course that feature only works on HTML that uses <font size> tags, so I guess that probably answers my question. It doesn't work on this page, for example. :) Works on sites like Drudge, though. I ...

I know I have that but not sure I ran in on her system. BTW... the makers of CWS no longer support it. There were too many variants of CWS to keep up with.

CoolWebSearch is one of the hardest hijackers to get rid of. Do a Google search and you will find entire web pages devoted to helping folks get rid of this parasite. I'm well aware of this. Another friend had a system so bogged down with spyware they were ready to junk it. I installed and ran the M...

My situation is the reverse. Avant doesn't seem to have the problems I'm having with IE.... problems with the Windows Update site and saving web pages as mht files either crashed IE or they just would not save.

What about un and reinstalling it first?

Is AVANT More Immune to Browser Hijackers?

I have a clean PC but a friend has a browser hijacker I have not been able to get rid of. I've run AdAware, Spybot S&D and two others with no luck. I tried a repair and reinstall of IE. She's running ME so the new anti-spyware beta from Microsoft won't work. I asked her to download Avant with the ho...

Re: Just what SP2 features does Avant NOT support?

That registry fix... could that also be used to get the info bar off IE or the MSN browser? It too is based on IE. If you still want this I could take a look at it because I'm about 75% sure it can be done. Sure if you could.... I no longer have SP2 to experiment with... but I might reinstall it if...

I might just not be understanding you correctly, but I did want to emphasize that you can get rid of the notifications without adding sites to your trusted zones.

Removing SP2 leaves too many open holes, and will leave many many more in the near future when having SP2 will be the minimum to install newer patches... then don't start saying IE has lots of security flaws, if you don't want to patch them :wink: I think it's a testament to the basic internal flaw...

What Avant Needs Is a good TEXT Resizer

One of the things I dislike most about IE is its inability to resize the text on most sites. I used to blame web designers until I found that Mozilla had a text resizer that worked on every page. Avant uses IE's inadequate tool... and the page magnifier, while glitzy, just magnifies everything and j...
