Too old and lazy to do a proper search for this, sorry. If for whatever reason I choose to disable Spyware Blaster's restricted-site protection, is that humongous list of additional registry entries removed, or do they stay and simply have their values changed to internet zone? I recently upgraded from dialup to DSL, and have since been experiencing l-o-n-g delays when "looking up ..." sites. I've tried the "auto" setting, the specific DNS-server IP's my ISP gave me, and even OpenDNS, with no noticeable difference. I doubt if SB (and particularly the registry additions) are to blame, since (a) I use Firefox almost exclusively, which doesn't use that protection, and (b) I typically have the same problem even off the web just checking POP mail. But if I used IE, it's a fair bet that having to scan all those entries before going to DNS lookup could slow things down considerably, the same way that a monstrous Hosts file could.
