"Your extension is not listed in the Chrome Web Store and may have been added without your knowledge."

therefore they have permanently disabled my AV software's browser guard and ad block extension; all in the name of making me safer.

Won't let you manually reenable them at all. Apparently you will have to lobby your providers and ask them to publish a version of their extensions on the google webstore.

I assume avast will get their stuff on the store at some point but this whole thing just smells bad. I get what google are trying to do but I just cant...

le sigh.
