Adblock plus

Am new to K.
Just downloaded adblock plus and unzipped it. Then, based on comment in a forum post, put the dll file into the k-meleon directory.

But nothing shows up as it being installed. I see where others comment on seeing the icon, indicating it is active, but no directions could I locate; such as the installation file ... exe.

What else do I need to do to activate adblock plus ... and yes I rebooted when I put the dll file in the directory.
TIA

If it is installed properly, an option should be in the View > Toolbars menu. In addition, it should also be listed in Edit > Preferences > Macro Extensions with a check mark beside it. If not I would suggest downloading the Add Block + program saving it to your K-meleon folder.

Then download and install the 7Z installer . You may need to restart the computer. Then right click on the AB_ setup file, go to 7-Zip and click on "Extract Here"

Now go to the K-Meleon folder and open the Components folder and delete the "compreg.dat" and "xpti.dat" files then close K-Meleon including the Loader.exe if it is running. Then restart K-meleon. You may need to perform this procedure every time you install a plugin.

Add just in case.

The dll goes AFAIK into kplugins. Each file goes to its respective relative location after extraction.

Best extract into K-Meleon folder to automate or use the extension manager.

Manual without manager: best when Yo extract into an empty folder and copy. Files and folders go to the K-Meleon equivalent location/folder. IFF: Copy with a dual window file manager to know what You are doing/copying where.


Cave: AFAIK all Ablock plus versions currently have limits = either they have function limits or bleed RAM slowly. Close K-M once in a while, iff.

I dimly remember having read something about Disrupted making a autoit version that has no RAM prob... and works without that dll... price for the RAM fix is that the GUI has less icons or something... There was a longer thread in the forum here.
I'd just try his version first:

RE: KEM. Still for some reason I cannot get KEM to install extensions. The extensions don't even show in the list of installed extensions. They do show up in the extensions list after I manually install them and the KEM uninstalls them fine. The same scenario plays out when I re-download/install the KEM. All I know to do is to blame it on President Bush.cool smiley Oh, well. It is definitely not a deal breaker.

AFAIK, AB+ does not cause any drain of my RAM.

All'n'All I guess things could be a lot worse.grinning smiley
