Wow. I've been on 2 hours ago and I didn't see that coming...
And sorry to sound like an idiot... but I don't see the URL Blocker beeing mentioned anywhere >_<
Would you be referring to the File Shredder? I'm pretty sure that's a new application...

The origin of myths is explained in this way." - Bertrand Russell

URL Blocker is new feature, When you try to open spyware/adware or any molicious URL it prompt to allow or block that URL. Its really a nice feature.!!

...Oh. Haha, apologies. I guess I misunderstood you. I misinterpreted the URL Blocker as one of those "Restricted Sites" recorders.
I don't think it's new because ever since I spent all of winter break last year fixing my other computer (-.-*) I've had Spybot. The older version 1.4 had the feature too.

Yes, the file shredder was a part of Spybot in version 1.3 and possibly before. They removed it in version 1.4

many users wanted the file shredder back


from here: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html so in version 1.5, the file shredder is back at user request and is now a separate element.

Note: The bad URL blocker has been a part of Spybot since at least version 1.3 . It was available in the Advanced Mode. I've always enabled it since I first installed Spybot in 2003.

Also, it is wise to navigate to the dowload site from the link I quoted from to be sure you have the most recent and the authentic Spybot.
