    I recently downloaded SpywareBlaster, and it's sped up my computer a little. I give it credit anyways. But... I'm not sure about this... Is there anything with firewalls involved with SpywareBlaster? I have a program that will not run... and I just thought that might be a possibility. So, to make it short, does SpywareBlaster have any firewall options?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Can you explain the problem you are having in more detail? SpywareBlaster does only two things - it sets the "kill-bits" in the registry for a specific known list of spyware related ActiveX controls, and it blocks a particular list of cookies in IE6. But, that's all it does. It does not control or regulate a PC's network connection at all, and it has not firewalling capability.

    With more details maybe we can help to figure out the problem.

    Well, the program I am talking about is a MUD client, and it hasn't been connecting. (I got the MUD client and SpywareBlaster around the same time) A friend told me a possible reason for this could be a firewall. I don't know much about firewalls or either program for that matter. So basically, i'm just trying to find any answers I can... considering I don't know where to start. Sorry if this is way off or something... but I figured I would try here.
