    Just installed Spyguard and thought it was done successfully. Looked for updates and that went fine.
    However, can not open Spywareguard. Basically, nothing happens when I click on it.
    Both icons are on the desktop?
    Have DELL PC w/256MB, running MS w/XP & IE6.0

    Is SpywareGuard's red SG icon down in the systray next to the clock? If so, it's running. The main desktop icon does not open the SpywareGuard command window. It merely runs SG and puts it in the systray if it is not there already.

    You actually open SpywareGuard by right-clicking on the systray icon.

    I must have missed this information in the install/setup/usage instructions. I too have been trying over and over to open SpywareGuard from the desktop icon, and didn't know that I Ihad to use the systray icon. This should be clearer -- it's been frustrating to sort through dozens of messages on the forum to figure out how I might solve my 'problem.'
