    There's an ongoing list of sites also using Instart Logic, including the two above. Most, if not all the sites listed below don't work correctly currently in Adguard thanks to Instart Logic.

    EDIT 08/11/2017: All the sites listed below have been taken care of thanks to a $$ HTML filtering rule. However, the added rule will only work for Adguard for Windows, Adguard for Mac and Adguard for Android (when using high quality filtering).

    EDIT: 09/09/2017: Added playstationlifestyle.net to the list. If there's anymore, please report them below!

    It's not an ad, it's an anti-adblock script in the background causing the page to never fully load (the page will reload then load everything from a g00 domain and create g00 cookies, which is the hallmark of the Instant Logic anti-adblock).

    @seanl probably would know more about this.

    Okay, there's a list of sites that use Instart Logic, including download.cnet.com and metacritic.com so I merged both threads, renamed it and sticky'd it for the time being since it seems to be more widespread and in-use than I thought. Only a handful of sites listed above are actually handled in Adguard whereas they all seem to be handled in the uBlock Extra extension.

    Edited the first post with more information, including a list of sites which are known to use Instart Logic.

    I can't fix it by JS, removed this script by $$.

    Looks like InstartLogic has been updated on many of the sites above, rendering the current filtering rule useless.

    Any update to the filter rule?

    EDIT: The rule was updated, wait for it to roll out in a English Filter update in the next hour or so. Also updated the sites list above and added playstationlifestyle.net to it. @Blaz the updated rule includes playstationlifestyle.net now.
