    The Abort button got "aborted," so if you are checking a pretty large list and want to abort, then you can keep pressing the Abort button all you want, you will have to wait 10 minutes before anything actually gets aborted.

    It's seriously frustrating - is there any way to "roll back" Scrapebox to a previous version?

    I found that scrapebox are getting worse by every update now. Sure, there are a couple of nice new features. But going through a long list like the OP did and it crashes for some random reason every time it sure gets frustrating. The support haven't even been able to help me :(

    I am not having any issues I have done about 500k links in the last 36 hours or so with two different installs and it seems to be running for me.

    I am not experiencing any problems, and I am a pretty heavy SB user. Personally, I love that we can test proxies against yahoo now. For whatever reason, I can scrape yahoo like 10X faster than google. :D

    Well I think so, I haven't had errors like "Out of memory" and similar errors before. I think this is a bit weird since I run a pc with 16 gig ram.

    Awesome feature indeed, but somehow those proxies tend to fail more when posting and scraping so I just stick to google ones. Takes more time but in the end it pays off when getting those extra 10-30% posted links.

    You might want to try the stand alone link checker I have always had better luck with it rather than use the one inside scrapebox.

    The only issue I have with scrapebox right now is checking links on MoveableType blogs. It finds all kinds of links, doesn't matter if they're mine or otherwise, making it pretty much useless for MT posting in my opinion. Sure I could pull the links over to the Sick Link Checker, or another link checker, but meh, I just stick to Wordpress and BlogEngine in the mean time.
