What is SDHelper?

June 27th, 2012

Resident SDHelper is a second layer of protection for Internet Explorer. The immunize function blocks installers by their ActiveX ID, whereas SDHelper blocks badware that tries to enter using a different method. Thus Internet Explorer cannot download bad files. You start SDHelper by clicking on ToolsResident on the left navigation bar (therefore Spybot-S&D has to run in Advanced Mode). There you can tick the checkboxes next to Resident “SDHelper” (Internet Explorer bad download blocker) active in order to activate SDHelper.
