    spyware blaster states that it can remove clientman
    i have even added the particular codes clientman uses
    to the additional items to be blocked.

    spyware blaster should block clientman and clientman 2 in 1 but it doesn't.

    clientman, clientman 2 in 1 are in the registry
    i manually remove them via regedit
    i reboot the machine and clientman and clientman 2 in 1 reappear.

    a) how do i remove clientman and clientman 2 in 1

    b) how do i set spyware blaster so it remains active in
    the "tray area"

    c) How do i get spyware blaster to remove clientman

    d) have installed zone alarm, search and destroy,
    absolute shield, adaware, pest patrol, spy hunter.

    please advise

    i hate clientman and odyseus marketing the creators of the monster.

    SpywareBlaster doesn't actually "remove" anything. It is not a scanner or cleaner, but it does disable a list of known spyware related ActiveX controls. There are several Clientman entries in SpywareBlaster's database, so it will prevent many from running if they are on your system, but it will not clean them off.

    Can you show us exactly what you added to SpywareBlaster's custom blocking list? It may help determine what's going wrong.

    Since SpywareBlaster doesn't clean things off the system, and it only disables specific ActiveX controls, there could very well be something else on your system that is restoring this/these entries when you reboot. The best way to determine if you have embedded spyware on your system is to post a HijackThis Log following these instructions.

    SpywareBlaster doesn't run in the background - it is a passive program. You run it once a week to check for updates; if any update is available you let it download, hit "Select All" and then "Protect Against Checked Items!". That's it. That puts all protections in place and you then close SpywareBlaster. It does not need to run in the background, and wouldn't do anything even if you did leave it running all the time.

    It can't, post a HijackThis Log instead.

    Yes, we all hate spyware programs like Clientman. :doubt:
