    So, it's been a week I'm being forced to turn Adguard for Windows off due to, as soon as turning on my computer and logging into Windows, Adguard keeps showing the "Threat Blocked" pop-up nonstop.
    Is there a way to know what is causing the blocks so I can look into it?

    Hello!

    AdGuard - Extensions - AdGuard Pop-up blocker - reinstall.

    Restart your browser and try again.

    Well, I tried delving into the problem and found out Adblock was firing up because remains of a malware on my computer was trying to access a website called Coin-services.info from Chrome.

    All I had to do was run AdwCleaner and the pop-up was gone.

    Turns out Adblock was doing it's job fine by blocking all traffic to that website.

    Thanks for the help TheHagasi, when I saw your reply I had already done away with the problem.
