    The thing is worthless, imho. It not only blocked an absolute TON of perfectly legitimate websites, it would say it was blocking IP addresses when I wasn't surfing, using P2P, or anything else. And yes, scans showed my system clean of infections. All MBAM's IP blocker does is make you paranoid, nothing more.

    Funny how we all look at things differently. I think the IP blocker is essential. It may not always be right but you can assume that risk and add those address entries to the ignore list...
