    Spyware Blaster does not have a resident shield. I believe it installs kill-bits in the registry to block certain vulnerabilities/attacks. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Spyware Blaster blocks malicious sites and activeX controls for Internet Explorer, and bad cookies in Firefox. You update the database roughly once a month and enable the protections - that's it. It does not have a resident "real time" shield. There are some additional tools which may come in handy - just check them out. I'm not aware of there being a beta version at the moment.

    I would definitely recommend using it, along with resident antivirus and antispyware.

    No, it doesn't block any such thing. That's a browser job (and first of all the website administrator job to fix). The things you've mentioned that you "of course don't use" o_O do exactly that.

    SpywareBlaster provides protection not just for Internet Explorer, but for a number of different browsers if you have them installed.

    Since SpywareBlaster's Restricted Sites protection prevents potentially unwanted downloads, scripting, browser exploits, and more - it can, in fact, prevent some XSS attacks (by disabling scripting on potentially unwanted sites). :)

    Best regards,
