    I have run SpySubtract and it finds 7 CoolWeb Search items. When I delete them, I run SpywareBlaster and it shows the 7 items unchecked again for protection. When I enable protection with SpywareBlaster, they show up again after deleting them using SpySubtract. Whats what?? Help!

    Hi there, and welcome to Wilders!

    Spysubtract must be using a very weak detection method which just recognizes part of the registry entry name. The 7 registry entries Spysubtract is "cleaning" for you are 7 registry entries put there by SpywareBlaster to block the items that Spysubtract is telling you are there. I would suggest submitting this to the Spysubtract folks. You can always double check with Spybot S&D and/or Ad-Aware.

    Thanks for your quick reply. You all have helped so many times before and decided to join up instead of just reading all the FAQS! Will mail the folks at SpySubtract. Again, thank you very much! :D
