I recently installed a new anti-virus feature (Norton) and since then ads don't appear on my site on my computer.

Has anyone experienced this before? Any suggestions?

Thanks,

What web browser are you using? If it is set to block cookies and trackers, ads won't show for you. It's possible your anti-virus settings could accomplish this too. So... that's where I'd look. Open your web browser and adjust the settings to allow everything. If your ads still don't show, then it probably is Norton, which you should be able to similarly adjust.

Pixby8,

Thanks for responding. After reading your response I visited a couple of sites I frequent and have always seen AdSense there but now AdSense ads are not visible.

I'm going to have to look around further.

Certainly "security" settings of the anti-virus. You can open your web browser's dev tool (they all have one). And in the network inspector, you can see if URLs are blocked, or reported as blocked in the "console" pan.

Wow, this is interesting to say the least.

I've visited a number of sites where I have prevously visited and found AdSense ads yet they're gone now.

Just one site I've visited today is still displaying AdSense.

If anyone has a suggestion for a site I should visit, I'm willing to take a look.

Thanks.

I'll have to give a try going where I've never been before.

Look is Norton add a browser helper tool , to your web browser. Or/and may be Norton is changing the settings of the web browser to ensure your "safety" . .. however, you said that you came to a site where adsense ads are still showing. So may be there is something more complex.
