Reinstall V 10.2 Build 52

I have AB on both my PC and my laptop. I tried to install V 11 on my laptop this morning before I read of some of the issues re loading Google Toolbar, Favourites and RoboForm. I expected a straightforward upgrade when I reinstalled AB but was faced with the On-line Form screen. I clicked on the but...

Re: Unblock Google Ads

No it's not my site. I don't have one. It's ANY site which has Google Ads links. e.g.http://www.webuser.co.uk/forums/ubbthreads.php/Cat/0

Unblock Google Ads

When I click on a link to any Google ad on any site, nothing happens unless I open it manually in a new page with Shift + Click on the link. Same thing happens in both AB and IE. If it's to do with my Hosts File (read about it but don't understand it!) how do I correct the Hosts File? Thanks in adva...

Re: Downloading certain pages

Morning. Amazing what a new day will bring. Success. Well partly. Having just installed latest Adobe Flash player, I found that my Adobe Shockwave player needed updating. When trying to download the latest, it kept sticking half-way and displaying the dreaded Done message. So I uninstalled it again ...

Re: Downloading certain pages

On my Laptop, it doesn't work with them on or off. On my laptop it DOES work with them on or off!!
I guess I'm just not destined to have Maneater as a ring tone. Mind you at the moment I think Crazy would be most appropriate!!!!
Thanks for your help guys. I'm off to bed now, my head's hurtin' :cry:

Re: Downloading certain pages

However, what I should add is that other sites don't necessarily have sound. For instance, if using AB I go to our BT (telephone company) website to search for the telephone number of a given business, say, I have to put in name and address/post(zip)code of business. Next screen then offers me sever...

Re: Downloading certain pages

The orange player is all I see too, but it plays on laptop but not on PC. I have WMP on both. How do I check settings?

Re: Downloading certain pages

My Restricted Sites List on my laptop is empty, bedaring in mind that yesterday it crashed and I have been rebuilding it from scratch. However, before the crash, these sites were downloading ok. My PC has a list of restricted sites which, I think, came from a default list supplied in one of Windows ...

Re: Downloading certain pages

Advanced Privacy Settings were different, so I set my PC's to match my laptop. Still the same. Tried loading the page in IE and as player page loads I get a message "Click to run an Active X control on this webpage OK", which I click then I get the "stalled" player and the Done message. I'm using Sy...

Downloading certain pages

Hope someone can help where other forums haven't been able to. On certain sites when I try to open a new page, I just get a blank screen with "Done" in the message line above the task bar. Or as a specific example I've tried to listen to sample ringtones for my mobile from the Samsung website. The p...

Well, I just became confused, but I reread your first post and have it straight now. I just tried it to verify, and you can't import Avant groups into Avant. The only groups you can import are NetCaptor's. (I'm guessing that you had to change the file type to "All Files" so that you could even see ...

This is a holding reply, while I address all the points in your last post. I'm used to waiting DAYS for responses on other forums. The response to this has been amazingly quick! Back in a mo!

Re: Location of Groups data

Yes. I've just cleared my current opemn pages (except this one) and opened up another group. When I have looked in my Shared Folder on my laptop, the groups.dat file now shows 117kb, so I imported that. However, when I open up Groups it shows groups.dat but it is still the first Group on my list. Al...

Re: Location of Groups data

Yes, it is in C:\Documents and Settings\Default\Application Data\Avant Browser along with other.dat files, such as adblack, adbypass, blockedads (biggest @ 4870kb), homepages plus a folder called Feeds.

Re: Location of Groups data

Yes and Yes! I have gone through all users Application Data folders and found 1 only for AB and that's the one containing the 113kb groups.dat file. I have che3cked all the tick boxes in Advance Search and it still only finds the same file!
