    Hi. New member here. Thanks. Maybe it's just me but sometimes I go back to Spyware Blaster and there are some items that appear in RED and have protection disabled. I have to go back, recheck them and reset it for "all enabled." What am I doing wrong? Why does this happen. Would appreciate any help. Thanks!

    Hi happyapple, and welcome to Wilders,

    Sorry I don't have any answers for you, just wanted to let you know I get pretty much the same thing. Once or twice a week I'll find that the last 8 or 10 items on the IE list-screen have mysteriously become un-protected, and I have to re-protect them which seems to work just fine (for a few days).

    Oddly, the main (Status) screen still shows 0 items unprotected at the time.

    Nothing's showing up with any of my protection "arsenal", and even a review of a HijackThis scan was clean.

    I can only guess that it's somehow related to my weekly reg-cleaning -- JV-16 will typically turn up half a dozen or so "useless empty" keys which I delete, and I can't help but wonder if there's some kind of connection with SB's behavior.

    Hopefully someone will have some answers, or at least suggestions, for both of us.

    You can add me to the list of users with this problem. I keep getting one in particular called xxxtoolbar that becomes unchecked on it's own. I will have to keep checking this post for an answer.

    I have the same problem except Spyware Eliminator has detected registry keys in my computer from three sites which had protection automatically disabled. They were xxxtoolbar, offshoreclicks and teensguru. Can some spyware disable protection to enable themselves to be downloaded?
