    Default Spybot 1.5 - Immunisation hang

    I've downloaded the recently released spybot 1.5 today and have a problem with it hanging and it raising my CPU usage to 100%

    The problem is caused by the immunisation feature, if you select all then immunise then try and undo it will hang, I've done a bit of testing and it only seems to hang if I try and undo the firefox immunisations, if I just choose the IE immunisations it doesn't hang.

    Same problem here. I think it just takes a very very long time to undo the immunization.

    It should be able to undo it as fast as it enables it. 1.4 didn't have this problem.

    1.4 has only a third of the immunization categories that 1.5 has, so it's not really something that can be compared

    Firefox un-immunization indeed takes some time; this has to do with the modular structure the new immunization has. We'll sure keep it in mind.

    Why is it able to make the immunization changes so quickly, but not the other way around?

    The immunization list is many times bigger then on 1.4 that had 9000 something on 98SE that I am running and now it has 58,828 things listed.
    I also checked every or lefted all checked and click Immunize.
    Did not like that it added to my hosts file. I got WinPatrol that popped up telling asking me about the change and said no.
    I then did a undo of everything that too 30 min's or so to undo everything.
    I see now if you uncheck every thing and check just the boxes you want to do is better but it still takes a long time.
    I redid all but the "Global (Hosts)".
    Later I see that under "Global (Hosts)" that I had 3,928 unprotected and 2,427 as protected and I had that unchecked and restored my hosts file so only reason for the 2,427 as protected is that those sites were already in my hosts file.

    But getting online using firefox 1.5 was very slow loading pages. So I did a undo on the 4 above the "Global (Hosts)" that are from the look of the icon SeaMonkey. But it was still slow so I unchecked the ones for firefox also and got page loads speed back.
    What are all the ones listed?
    I don't have Opera but 1.5 says it has "Improved Immunization for Opera" but I only see Firefox, IE and SeaMonkey listed.
