    Adblock Plus won't install

    Downloaded the new apk but it won't respond to the install button on my stock Thrive.

    Any ideas?

    From where did you download it?
    Afaik, they were removed from the PlayStore.
    If you obtained it from other sources, it might be corrupt.

    Does Adblock need Root access? I know many of the ad blocking do.
    Thank you,

    All the Best from the Great Northwest...

    Adblock Plus isn't supposed to require root.

    Further research shows that there are certain background processes that can cause this.
    A newly installed app or utility can create a transparent 'overlay' that takes focus off the task at hand, not allowing the 'button' to be 'pushed'.
    Might be the case here...

    1. Try downloading it again. If you downloaded it to your computer and transferred it to the Thrive, try downloading directly to the Thrive. Or the other way around.

    2. As in my post above, see what processes are running in the background. Anything other than Android system ones might need to be stopped first.

    Do you have trouble side loading any other apps?

    I'll try downloading it to the computer. The only other app that acts like this on my Thrive is the Amazon store.
