You been around for what seems like ages. With purpose! Great job!
1.) Win10 Pro x64 v1909 Build 18363.476
2.) UAC = Max setting
3.) Emsisoft Anti-Malware, HitmanPro.Alert, Blackfog Privacy ... (no messages, but will try disabling these one by one).
4.) Not that I can think of
6.) Local account
Edit: In v5.5, Google Chrome didn't show up at one point, and you advised to add a registry setting ...

Maybe this is now the culprit?
Disabling all security softs, or lowering UAC, and opening SB: Google Chrome still shows as 'Admin Required', but as I say it started happening recently in v5.5, so it is not a v5.6 problem.
When I want to install version 5.6 on windows 10 I get this:
No problem, just click 'More information' and then 'Run Anyway'
SmartScreen just blocking it due to its rarity, or 'newness'.
I still can't visualize it. Will it add rules to my hostfile for example? Or will it make blocking rules in the Win Firewall?
Thanks for that.
I would buy a licence to support SpywareBlaster but I think it's really too expensive ...
I see we are still only receiving updates for Internet Explorer.
... and no further response to #27.
I had issues with Chrome in v5.5 before (solved by @javacool here): https://www.wilderssecurity.com/thr...indows-10-and-more.385942/page-2#post-2646085
Wondering if it is related?
... so there is no enhanced protection for Firefox and Chrome? What a pity!
Thanks, I forgot to reply. But is there any advantage to this, when compared to uBlock?
I lost interest in SpywareBlaster, long time. I only installed 5.6 to see whats what.
Just trying to support the old soft, but agree, it probably has had its day.
OK cool. That's exactly why I asked, because AFAIK a tool like uBlock will block trackers and the browser itself should block third party cookies if configured correctly. So I don't see any advantage.
I assume when each time you refer to 'UBlock' you are referring to uBlock Origin:
Edit: OK, I don't think you are a Firefox user, but the question still applies.
SpywareBlaster and SpyBot, best protection 15 years ago ...
Yes correct, I'm talking about uBlock Origin, I forgot that there is also another one called uBlock. I never really understood how this is possible, extensions shouldn't be allowed to have almost the same name.
Separate names with a comma.
