Members of the Spybot Forum Advisory Team have confirmed that " Chrome isn't supported yet."
So for Chrome users, if you have Spybot - get rid of it and if you have not got Spybot - don`t get it.
When uninstalling Spybot you must do these two things before you start :-
1. Either delete all items in Quarantine or restore them and let another program pick them up if they are valid.
2. Undo the Immunization - this is very important. With the Spybot Immunization, it effectively blocks over 300,000 files and if left undone will cause many problems.
Note :- I always use Revo Uninstaller. This program is excellent and firstly uses the legitimate normal uninstall program, but then searches for left-overs and in the case of Spybot, there are many.
A very important point using Revo Uninstaller is that when the normal uninstall program has been executed, a panel may come up asking for a re-boot - ingnore this and hit the "X", otherwise you will disrupt the progress of Revo Uninstaller and all the left-overs will be left over. This popup panel is from the original uninstall program and nothing to do with Revo. It is very misleading and tempting to action, dump it !
As there are quite a few browsers available for use, a program that concentrates exclusively on browsers is not a lot of use. It is a never ending fight to keep up with new threats, the introduction of keeping up with browsers as well is a self inflicted wound which is unnecessary.
I have had SpywareBlaster installed for years. You don`t see it or know it is there, but it does a fine job and is a free protective credit to any system.
