Malwarebyte's web protection blocks adguard's web assistant from running. When i disable web protection and reopen chrome, i can see assistant working and blocking the ads, but when web protection is on, web assistant is not loaded and no ads are getting blocked. Is anyone facing such issues? Is there any ways to solve it?

Hello there!
Open AdGuard settings > General > Advanced > Switch-on FilterLocalhost function.
Any changes?

I have uninstalled and installed Adguard again. It seems to be working. I did uninstall and reinstall before and it worked for a while and then stopped. I will enable FilterLocalhost and see if it holds. thanks for quick reply.

Please specify the version of AdGuard/Windows/Malwarebytes
Also, try to switch-off WFP driver and Intercept TCP connections (Advanced settings).

Hello there! ;)

Same thing for me. Adguard windows is no longer working after updating Malwarebytes.
As said by srisar, I have put WPF driver "OFF" - Intercept TCP connections (Advanced settings) is still "ON"
It is working again that way.

My configuration:
* Adguard windows 7.3
* Malwarebytes Premium 4.0.4.49 - Version of the "updated kit" 1.0.17732 - Version of "composant kit" 1.0793
* Windows 10 - version 1903 (18362.535)

Malwarebytes Pro is blocking the AdGuard assistant. AdGuard assistant, he can't help me. How to solve this situation. I'm asking for your help.

When the full protection of Malwarebytes Pro is enabled, the AdGuard assistant does not work.

I don't confirm what you wrote. AdGuard blocking ads doesn't work. Malwarebytes Premium 4.1.0 blocks the AdGuard assistant. The current version is 7.4 nightly 9.

Legacy Edge is a different kind of animal.

In 7.4 the Assistant is considered legacy and has been replaced with the new Browser Assistant browser extension, which *should* work fine with Malwarebytes. The problem, obviously, is that it's not available for the legacy version of Microsoft Edge (since legacy Edge is more-or-less considered a dead browser with the new Edge released to replace it). And yes, for the new Chromium-based Edge the Browser Assistant found in the Chrome Web Store works fine.

IMO, once 7.4 final is released, this should be more-or-less considered a non-issue since the Browser Assistant is and will be available for all popular web browsers... well, except legacy Edge and Internet Explorer, of course. IMHO, those two browsers really shouldn't be used anymore.
