How do I set this to run in the background? It doesn't show up in my task list.
Mstik_TK - You might want to read this and note that javacool recommends using SpywareGuard, instead: http://www.wilderssecurity.net/bhblaster.html . Pete
some site links to http://www.wilderssecurity.com/bhblaster.html
(I wish I remembered which site it was )
If it wasn't for this post, I wouldn't have known about the newer program. Please fix the .com site so it has that bold print on top
the site was http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/articles/hijacked/
that gives the .com link
Thanks for the help.
I'm currently using Spybot S&D, but I was wondering which prgram I should use alongside it:
Spyware Blaster or Spyware Guard?
Any reason for making this an either / or choice? Javacool built these two programs to be complementary to each other. Together they cover more spyware protection than separately. A very many people run both SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard, and they both work fine with Spybot S&D on your system.
Both, of course.
Mystik, while SBS&D does an excellent job of cleaning up spyware after-the-fact (as does AA), what you really want is to not get slammed with any spyware to begin with.
Both SBS&D and AA should never find anything on your computer, scumware-wise - they should both be had and run, of course, but only to verify the fact that all your pro-active defenses are working properly (pro-active defenses being such things as SWB and SWG, as well as programs like IE-SPYAD - if you use IE, of course - having tight settings for whatever browser and chat program you use in addition to having a properly installed and configured firewall whose results/output you understand and an OS that is totally patched/updated with all security-related items).
Is your Windows Messenger shut-down/un-installed? It should be, unless you really have a use for it.
Do you have WSH shut down? If not, have you a script-control program in use? (ScriptSentry, WormGuard, ScripTrap, etc.). If not, why not? The examples I could give you are many.
It's not "This one?"
It's this one and this one and that one. Layers. A pro-active defense - instead of just relying on a re-active defense to clean up messes with.
Or at least that's the way it works most excellently here. Pete
Thanks for your help.
I went to uninstall BHB, but it was still running.
Which files should I remove to complete the uninstall?
Just look for the directory in which Browser Hijack Blaster was originally installed. If it exists, delete it. That's about it.
(The default path is C:\Program Files\Browser Hijack Blaster)
