    Question Google Chrome Immunization

    I've been using Google's browser recently and have noticed that it doesn't appear to be immunized. Perhaps I'm wrong, but S&D finds spyware almost nightly after I've been surfing with GC.

    Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Hello,

    I am sorry, but Chrome is only being supported in scanning and fixing at the moment.
    It is a very new browser and chrome itself does not offer any interface for immunizing yet.

    Default Similiar Question

    I am a huge fan of Firefox but the latest update had a few bugs. Therefore I installed Google Chrome on my HP mini. I like the browser, but I am wondering if there is something I can do regarding scans until Spybot includes this in its database. Should I just do a scan after each browsing session? I appreciate you help.
    This is a great site; I only wish I could use my own avatar!

    If you have a lot of time on your hands that is. I wouldn't suggest running a scan each time because it is redundant. I'd rather use those 10-20 minutes during that Spybot-Search&Destroy scan to take a nap or grab a snack .

    If you wish, you can always clear your cookies or cache after a browsing session rather than scan every time. For me, I simply scan with Spybot every week following the latest updates.

    Default Google chrome

    OK... It's now been quite a long time since Chrome came on. Is there now any way to add Chrome to the immunization options?

    Thanks!

    I'm also using GC. Can you recommend an alternative browser if it still isn't immunized? I'd prefer something that works with SpyBot.
