    Hi,

    Can I just say thanks for a great product. I just have 2 questions about this:

    1. I use Firefox as my primary browser. Now I understand it blocks bad ActiveX for IE, but does it block the equivalent for Firefox, as I know Firefox does not use Active X?
    I think they use this: (NPAPI) system

    2. Would you reccomend the downloading of a HOSTS file to protect myself further in addition to Spyware Blaster? Is it advised for the average user like msyelf.
    For example like this one here: HOSTS

    Many Thanks in advance :)

    I use the following with no problems or slow downs. MVPS hosts file 2/11/09 + hpHosts hosts file 3/10/09 (with HostsXpert 4.3) and SpywareBlaster 4.1 + custom blocking (http://koti.mbnet.fi/pattaya1/swb3.htm 3/11/09). I wouldn't want any larger Hosts file though. The two Hosts files merged with HostsXpert http://www.funkytoad.com/ are a little over 67,000 entries.
