    AG helpdesk replied:
    It disappeared because of filter list reworking.

    Also related to AG for iOS:
    The Online malicious URL blocklist was completely removed from our iOS apps, because according to App Store reviewers, there's no malware on iOS, and we aren't allowed to block something, that doesn't exist. Speaking about the Security section, we just started reworking it, that's why it is, currently, empty.

    This is the last time I install a beta. Got up this morning to AdGuard not being able to start and the uninstaller crashing as well. Had to remove with HiBit Uninstaller and reinstall a fresh copy of the regular release. This was on 2 different PCs.

    I had the same problem and thought my Windows had issues. Anyway, I didn't have to uninstall. I downloaded the Nightly installer, and it installed over the beta version. Probably should've opted for release build instead but don't know if release build can be installed over Beta build (probably possible). But it's not possible to revert back to release from nightly without uninstalling first.

    Hadn't thought of that but I expect it would have worked. Release would not install over the beta, it said it was already installed. Your solution was probably easier but I am good with where I am at now.

    Thanks for the tool, I may still need it on one PC. Too late to backup the config from a copy that won't launch.

    Do you know where the Blocked ads and Blocked trackers info that is shown in the main UI is saved? Is this the adguard.db file in "C:\ProgramData\Adguard"?

    Don't use adguard atm, but maybe in the WindowsEventViewer.

    Probably that is a sqlite file. Not likely anyone outside of their dev team knows what is in it. It does seem the likely place they would store that info.

    Not there as it's related to AdGuard's own log.
    Yeah, it must be that adguard.db sqlite file. If you uninstall AdGuard but choose to keep user settings, then "C:\ProgramData\Adguard" is not removed and if you reinstall, your Blocked ads and tracker database remains like before. The only file in that folder where the data could potentially be is that file. I tried to load it in a sqlite database app but of course it's encrypted so can't read it.
    BTW, since you use ESET, have you added AdGuard and ESET to each other's exclusion along with turning off ESET's HTTPS scanning protection for browser processes?
