    Spybot-S&D does also support other browsers than IE. It can empty the browser's cache and history and checks for bad cookies, start page and bookmarks. In the past versions of Spybot - Search & Destroy the Immunization did not work for Firefox, it was only for the Internet Explorer. But since the new version 1.5.the immunization works also for Firefox and Opera.

    In addition, Spybot-S&D contains the Resident TeaTimer which is completely browser independent. It is a Spybot-S&D tool perpetually monitoring the processes called/initiated. It immediately detects known malicious processes wanting to start and terminates them giving you some options, how to deal with this process in the future: You can set TeaTimer to:

    - be informed, when the process tries to start again
    - automatically kill the process
    - or generally allow the process to run

    There is also an option to delete the file associated with this process.

    In addition, TeaTimer detects, when something wants to change some critical registry values. TeaTimer can protect you against such changes again giving you an option: You can either "Allow" or "Deny" the change.

    The TeaTimer is always running in the background.

    Best regards
