Corrine (and Pete),

I have not been following the "update topic" in detail.  I have noticed over the past few years that there have been fewer additions but I have not paid specific attention to the nature of the update additions.

Spybot also has a feature that provides immunization and during the same period I have noted fewer updates of its immunization database also.  So to me nothing about SpywareBlaster seemed amiss.  But Spybot still does occasionally have immunization updates and version 2.4 does seem to apply the immunization to the following browsers (on Windows XP):  Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, SeaMonkey, Pale Moon, K-Meleon, (chromium-based) Opera, and a Global (Hosts) file.  What this means in relation to SpywareBlaster I have not a clue!

Yes, it is still providing support but if you've been following the update topic here, you will have noticed that no new additions have been made to any browsers except Internet Explorer (ActiveX) since 2013.  I did find a listing for 3 restricted sites add December 28, 2014.

Corrine,

I am confused by your statement about Spywareblaster that

Quote
Since the update to version 5.5 of Spywareblaster, only new Internet Explorer (IE/ActiveX) updates have been included.

I have SpywareBlaster 5.5 on both a Windows XP desktop and a Windows 10 notebook, and it still shows that it is providing support for several browsers just like it always has.  (See the attachment below)

Am I missing something?

Yes But...
I can't recall the last time an update included anything that was not for IE.

The "block list" for FireFox appears to be exactly the same as when I installed it.
