Yes, it works like a breeze, no questions, BUT:
Many programs (too many to list, but Hypersnap, O%O Defrag, Invidia utils, even Calibre, etc) started to crash. In all cases the culprit is WS2_32.DLL, which causes the crashes.
This is in turn caused by installation of Hide My IP. Yes, I made a ton of tests, using various system backups, etc. Normally my system is perfectly stable and rock solid.
All scenarios always point to Hide My IP, which, although working perfectly itself, is causing a mess with WS2_32.DLL, making use of many programs impossible. Simple uninstallation of Hide My IP immediately rectifies the problem.
The system is Win7 64.
