    Immunization will not be dropped, we will continue updating immunization.

    However, lately there has been a change on how malware handles it's 'servers', many domains hosting malware exist only for a short time and those who exist longer are mostly hijacked websites.
    Protection against malicious downloads from legit websites is handled our IE browser helper object in Spybot S&D 1.6.2.
    Immunization mostly blocks the whole domain which is usually not wanted when a legit domain only has a couple malicious files for download (IE Helper will block these downloads).
    Did that explanation in the thread not help? Also which version of Spybot-S&D are you using.

    Best regards.

    I am using 1.6.2
    Sorry I'm just bored of downloading updates that appear to do nothing.

    I click immunize and I get 0 updated.
