Pulling My Hair Out With AdSweep: But I Got It Back!

I don't know if you can read it in the upper-right hand co
rner of the screen shot below, but the little red box says: Your AdSweep is currently active.


These five words, read by the C.A. this afternoon, represent the fruits and culmination of hours upon hours of frustration.

I do not know exactly why, to this moment, but my AdSweep kind of went numb on me and stopped working.

After trying a million (okay, 999,999) different self-invented and web-instructed fixes, I finally decided to wipe my laptop clean of any folder or remnant with the name of Chrome (yes, sounds a little fascist, I know).

Indeed, the experience was as follows:
For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the Chrome remants, yea, and all that do mess up my AdSweep, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the C.A., that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
Yep, I felt like I had had to kneel down in sackcloth and ashes to get it all figured out.


But, in the end, it seemed like all I had to do was create a shortcut on my desktop to fill in all the details and it would work and it did! PRAISE BE!!

Let me know if you would like any help setting it up.

WOW. That was extremely nerdy, but then again, nerds are my favorite. HAHA. Good job with your adsweep!

I love the picture of the guy in sack cloth and ashes.
