Default Adfree not blocking

So for the past few days I've been bombarded with ads that the typical android user encounters- it sucks!!!
Anyway anyone else having the same issue? Anyway to fix it?

HD 13. The issue has only been within the past 2 days.
And yes I have updated the host names in adfree and rebooted.

Just an FYI. Tried one more time on ad-away and it worked!

AdAway is the add blocker that works these days. AdFree hasn't worked in more than six mnths.
