IE8 issues if immunization by Spybot-S&D is enabled

 

E-társak, gáz van!

 

There are reports that IE8 will not start fast if user’s system is immunized using Spybot S&D.  I able to reproduce this in Vista and XP.

There is report of high-CPU usage when Spybot –S&D immunization is enabled. I able to reproduce this in XP.

There is also report that IE8 will not load fast or it will hang if restricted sites exists in IE Restricted Sites zone, e.g. using IE-SPYAD and I able to reproduce this also in XP and Vista.

Time for the authors to check their protection tools for IE8 compatibility.  For now, users who want IE8… should disable the immunization and IE-SPYAD.  For users who prefer the protection over IE8, stay first with IE7.
