    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
    5.) No
    6.) Local account

    Edit: In v5.5, Google Chrome didn't show up at one point, and you advised to add a registry setting ...
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/thr...indows-10-and-more.385942/page-2#post-2646085 (... and prior posts)

    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.

    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?

    I would buy a licence to support SpywareBlaster but I think it's really too expensive ... :blink:

    ... so there is no enhanced protection for Firefox and Chrome? What a pity! :doubt:

    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:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/
    and not
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock/

    Edit: OK, I don't think you are a Firefox user, but the question still applies.
