    Been using it for a while... Does it actually provide any meaningful protection? Also, it doesn't support Chrome, which I'm recently switching to.

    As far as I know it blocks bad websites using the hosts file. I think it should affect Chrome and all Windows programs. No idea if it has helped me.

    Have no idea, but I think this program is old-fashioned.

    It's not a fashion collection for 2012- it's supposed to work and it does.
    Simple solutions are usually the best ones.

    Another app that works in a similar manner is SpywareBlaster.

    Is this feature obselete?

    do i need to have it (immunization)?

    I'am currently using MSE, Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster.

    currently planning to uninstall Spybot S&D and SpywareBlaster, is this a good idea?
