Does this happen on every site? Do you have some examples?

Update:

I completly uninstalled Avant, Java & Flash.

I reinstalled Java & Flash via IE8 and then reinstalled Avant. That seemed to help significantly.

Before, i was having the problems sites such as:

http://www.youtube.com
http://www.yahoo.com
http://www.drudgereport.com
http://oblivion.wikia.com/wiki/Pilgrimage
http://www.orsm.net (warning NSFW)




Afterwards, i could load youtube, yahoo, drudgereport but still had problems with:

http://oblivion.wikia.com/wiki/Pilgrimage
http://www.orsm.net (warning NSFW)

the above two consistantly will not load or will block all images (avant 11 worked properly)

In fact, most ads were still showing up with ad blocker enabled, a complete turn arround from earlier.


Also, i noted that with ad blocker enabled, most web pages load more slowly.

pages with ad.doubleclick.net adds will often stop responding wit "this tab is currently not responding... (older version of avant would simply block the ads and the rest of the page still loads correctly, just confirmed on another pc)

i will also get a lot more " "something went wrong with this webpage." with ad blocker enabled.
