    as far as i can see those statistics do not seem to be savable at this time. you could put up a feature request for this.

    There is one way to save statistics:

    1. Install Adguard to your new PC
    2. Copy %ProgramData%\Adguard\dbase.s3db file from your current computer to the new PC (to the same location, overwrite existing file).

    thanks for your reply avatar, I actually tried that before posting this thread and it does not seem to work... ideally I want the date and the entire statistics to be saved.

    You should also export Adguard registry entry then (HKLM\Software\Adguard).

    But this will work if new PC is "clean" and you install Adguard after importing registry entry.

    OK gotcha,what about the same PC after uninstalling Adguard? I hope you include an import/export option to import/export settings and statistics for the sake of user convenience.

    Uninstalling Adguard is not enough:( Adguard leaves some marks for proper license check.

    We were thinking about synchronizing your settings and statistics with the cloud in some.
    This is not the same but isn't it solves your problem?

    I understand that uninstalling Adguard will leave a few traces however it does not solve the problem entirely,I test a lot of softwares and often re-image back to a fixed setting once testing is done so I prefer if i can export the most recent settings,filters statistics etc so that it can be imported once I am done with re-imaging. I am fine with cloud sync as well..... if implemented I think it would be a winner.
