How do I disable my antivirus/ad-block browser extensions?

Sometimes antivirus and ad-block browser extensions (such as Norton, Avast, McAfee and Adblock) can prevent the game from functioning properly. If you are encountering strange or inconsistent game behavior, we recommend disabling these extensions while you are playing Criminal Case.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Below are instructions explaining how to either disable your extensions one by one or how to play without using extensions. If you have doubts about which extensions need to be disabled, we recommend following the instructions on how to "play without extensions."
Click on the browser you use to be guided to the according section:


I. How to disable extensions one by one
