What I'm wondering is why there would even be a need for the tea timer or SD Helper. I mean there's already an "Immunization" feature right? It blocks Active X controls, and in the new version, cookies and restricts bad site actions. And most of us that attend this site also use Spyware Blaster. I'd say we're pretty well covered for malicious program blocking. Somebody was saying Avenue A is a cookie blocked by SD Helper but Spyware Blaster already blocks like over 200 cookies including Avenue A. My hosts file is "read only" so no hijacking can take place. I consistently run Adaware and Spybot, they don't usually find anything and if they do it's not much. I've recently run Hijack This also with no problems. Is there really anything else to worry about or is it that some people are a little too excessive over security?
