"If SWB as a reputable supplier cannot react to the problem their program has with the entire worlds Chrome users, then I can live without them quite happily and Javacool can engulf himself in sheer ecstasy with his individual email discussions until the Sun goes Bang."
Beaker, I run Win XP and use Chrome, also, and have never had a problem with SpywareBlaster. When you selected Enable All Protection, did you close SpywareBlaster then reopen and Chrome was still showing only Partially Enabled? Did you update SpywareBlaster as suggested? I'm not trying to rain on your rant...just puzzling through your problem. You mentioned Avast is your anti-virus while I'm using Avira so I wonder if something in Avast is switching off the Chrome protection?
I do not rant, simply write comments.
Yes, I have done what you say and just about everything else my humble brain can provide, but with no solution.
If you read the Wilders links specified, you will see that I am not alone in being plagued by this problem and nobody has yet come up with an answer.
This matter is now many months old and in my technical world that is more than enough time for the SWB engineers and technicians to have solved the issue. By now, we should have a precise answer to the cause of this problem and a clear solution.. Not the hotch-potch of "do this or do that" which seems to be apparent.
Bearing in mind the many thousands of variations of individual systems, the fact that this SWB fault is standard at 239 items for random users thousands of miles apart, instantly means that the problem is entirely due to a SWB/Google Chrome program mis-match and nothing else.
To prove this, I installed SWB version 5.0 and ALL Chrome items are now enabled ! The 239 partially disabled Chrome items shown by SWB version 5.2 are now gone.
So SWB version 5.2 is incompatible with Chrome - I posted my Chrome version earlier. I suggest that SWB get their finger out and do some work to correct this problem.
