    Default Why double/triple entries :-(

    Why does the immunization add unnessesary entries?
    In IE6 and FF it add all these line (example):

    the.007guard.com
    www.007guard.com
    www.install.007guard.com
    *.007guard.com

    The last line will cover the first 3 as well, so this is just a waste of space (and time to search through).

    I have asked something about this with the "hosts" file too.
    Why have:

    127.0.0.1 the.007guard.com
    127.0.0.1 www.007guard.com
    127.0.0.1 www.install.007guard.com

    When all variants can be on one line (save space/time):

    127.0.0.1 the.007guard.com www.007guard.com www.install.007guard.com

    Some of us have slower systems you know :-)

    Is a wildcard really faster than separate entries?
    A single line looks easier, but might actually require more from the algorithm that does the comparison than a static entry. Let me think how this could be tested fine.
