    Getting rid of Google Chrome Popup Blocker for good?

    Hi Gang,

    Have run into an annoying problem with the Google Chrome browser that I can't seem to defeat.

    Google Chrome Version 58.0.3029.81 [Up to date at time of writing]

    I use a third party Pop-Up blocker (Popup Blocker Pro) which is my preferred solution to blocking Pop Ups but no matter how often I've tried, I can't seem to get Chrome's built in Popup Blocker to stop loading.

    I've gone into chrome://settings/content several times and set Pop-ups to

    "Allow all sites to show pop-ups" which results in the pop-ups icon (shown below) to dissapear and behave as I want..

    .. but that only seems to work for the current browsing session.

    If I close the Chrome Browser and re-open it, Chrome settings revert back to "Do not allow any site to show pop-ups (recommended)"

    Can't seem to make it stick to "Allow all sites to show pop-ups" no matter what I try.

    Steps tried to date:

    • Tried Resetting Chrome to defaults by going to Settings > Show advanced settings... > Reset Settings
    • Uninstalled Chrome, Rebooted, Reinstalled Chrome


    Neither of the above attempts resolved the problem.

    Anyone here come across this and have a solution to it?

    Best..

    Solved.

    The problem was a corrupt Google Chrome Profile at C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Us er Data

    Renaming the Default folder and allowing Chrome to create a new profile fixed the problem and now the "Allow all sites to show pop-ups" setting sticks.

    Answer found with the help of the folks at experts-exchange.com

    Cheers..
