I installed Spyware Blaster Ver 3.4 the last week in June. Very impressed with simple user interface. Enabled all protection at installation set up. I downloaded the new definitions database 7/7/05 and all appeared to download ok with no error messages. Happened to open up SpywareBlaster today and noticed the protection status showed hundreds of items disabled from protection (mostly CoolWebSearch and Dialer entries). As I have not unchecked any items to be disabled from protection, why do you suppose there were literally a hundred or more unchecked and in red? Is it usual for update new entries to download this way, in "disable protection" status? Am I supposed to go in and enable protection manually like I had to do today? Can't begin to tell you how long that took!!! If this is normal, I won't be using SpywareBlaster for long!! It allowed me (once I logged on as Administrator account) to check them, click Protect Checked Items button and now protection status shows Zero items disabled for protection. Why did I have to go through all that? I have done scans and HJT logs as recently as today and am not infected with any virus or spyware that I can tell. Any ideas?
