Update:
Have been on a three day trial running the Nightly 7.0.2807.0 using default settings and using Chrome --> the Establishing secure connection website freezes and timeouts were still appearing and I had to disable AG protection to complete the website connections.

I then changed my Filter update check period to 12 hours and I also unchecked Use localhost for injections and I also used localhost for injections but the website freezes and timeouts were still appearing and I had to disable AG protection to complete the connection. I also enabled Use redirect driver mode but that didn't help either.

I uninstalled Ver 7 and reinstalled 6.4.

Here’s a fix. You’re not going to like it but here it is anyway:
  1. Run Linux
  2. Use Firefox

I upgraded to 7.1.2817.0 Beta there is no way to Enable Protection.
Any attempt to Enable Protection generates "Something went wrong. Contact support team".

Please use the article on reinstalling the program.
After successful removal, download the installer file by reference and run the installation.

If these manipulations did not have an effect, you should perform the following actions:
1. Press Windows + R on your keyboard. When the Run window opens, type in the following command: "%systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts." and press OK or Enter.
2. Windows will display a prompt asking you what program should be used to open the file. Select Notepad and press OK;
3. Check for any records containing "adguard.com". They should look like this:
127.0.0.1 api.adguard.com
127.0.0.1 api-b.adguard.com
127.0.0.1 api-c.adguard.com
127.0.0.1 api-d.adguard.com
4. If your Hosts file contains these records, please delete them and press Ctrl+S to save the file.
5. Close Notepad, reboot your PC and check if the issue persists.

Chinaski,
I upgraded to the 7.1.2817.0 Beta by right clicking on the "Release Version 7.9.2693.6661" task bar icon and selecting "New Version is Available". When I did that a window opened with the Release Notes for 7.1.28.17.0 and an "Update Tab". I then clicked the "Update Tab" and the update routine completed the update as shown in my screenshots.

--> Does AdGuard have a web page where I can locate and download the 7.1.2817.0 Beta installer file?

Thanks

5. Close Notepad, reboot your PC and check if the issue persists.
I still get the "Something Went Wrong" error with no way to enable protection.

Following that article's instructions:
1. I uninstalled AdGuard via the Windows Control Panel
2. I then used the AdGuard Uninstall Utility (Standard mode) as a second uninstall routine.
3. After using the above two methods of uninstall I launched the 7.1.2817.0 Beta installer file obtained from the link you gave me.
4. The install routine ended with the "Something Went Wrong" error.
5. I ran the "%systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts." command. My hosts file contained no "adguard.com" records. Please see below screenshot.

I have no idea why I should be having this "Something went wrong" issue with the 7.1.2817.0 Beta installer.
During this past week I have installed the Nightly 7.0.2807.0 and the AdGuard 7.0.2693.6661 Release, and the AdGuard 6.4 versions without any problems.

Will check back tomorrow.

Hi,

Thanks for the new version, but I think it doesn't really solve the problem of broken downloads on my system. To test this, I just initiated an MP3 download and manually checked for filter updates while the download was running. The download stalled as soon as Adguard's tray icon turned orange. This is on a Win7 64 system, running Firefox and F-Secure virus scanner. I hope this can be fixed, because this way, I always have to check for updates before starting a download and even then, large downloads over slow connections may still fail.

There might be a F-Secure incompatibility, which might make sense since the driver in 7.0 is a new network driver, so these incompatibilities are likely to rear the ugly heads once again.

I have re-installed my BitDefender Total Security now because AdGuard 7.1 was working great.
But after reinstallation of BitDefender, AdGuard 7.1 is again blocking all of my web browsers, so I had to uninstall AdGuard again.
:(
