Installer "frozen" with ads blocked

Recommended Posts

Hi, I run an ad-blocking script in my router, and this seems to be causing the CCleaner installer to take a long time to run. First it remains in the background with no visible window for about 1-2 minutes, then the main screen appears which is again "frozen" for a while. I'm guessing this is the result of blocking PUP malware. (Avast etc)

Since it wants to phone home, perhaps try installing offline. I've no ideal if that will help or result into the same but worth a try.

Your permission buttons are disabled from looks like process explorer. Lets start by rights? Ransomware enabled?

Nope, it's all about the PUP getting blocked. I'm guessing the installer has a long timeout to resolve and connect to the hosts where to retrieve the malware (avast etc).

That is not how it works. The full installer may display an offer that the bottom of the install screen, but if that does not appear you would still get the rest of the screen loading, enabling you to continue.  The slim build has no additional offers to retrieve at all.  Sounds like something else is afoot with your system configuration that is causing your problems.

Well check this video, the installer works after I disable the adblocker.

While we are all in favour of ad-blockers (we're even starting to offer the functionality ourselves), if an ad blocker has been configured to additionally block things that aren't ads then you may find it interfering with the legitimate function of other software.

Sorry but I disagree. The adblocker runs in the router itself, it does not interfere with the process in any way, only in the network connections outside of the machine. Why should the CC installer freeze for 2 minutes when it can't connect?

This is CC with adblocker on:

then CC without adblocker:

slim installer also attempts to connect:

why does the slim installer connect to avast if it does not include any PUPs?
