    Hi,
    I'm use the security program Spyware Blaster, and keep it update all the time, i'm check for new updates evry 3 days.
    I'm use my computer carefully so, only few times i found on my PC spywares, my question is:
    How can i know than Spyware blaster real blocks those programs? I mean, i saw some sites than asks me id i want to install Gator (For example) if i click than i want to install Gator, these program will install herself on my pc or than Spyware blaster will block him?
    Spyware blaster shouldn't make those spywares install themself on my computer right? How i can be sure that my Spyware blaster really works..? It's possible?

    Thnks a lot!!
    Pablo

    if you have spybot s&d run it, if it comes up clean i'd say your blaster is working.
    i update my blaster every week that seems ok, every 3 hrs may be a bit extreme....but that's just me :p

    in a locked facility, but its ok
    I know it seems SB just kinda sits there and seems to do nothing, but I tell ya, it has caught a couple things for me, so if you followed all the instructions and your puter was in good shape when you put SB on as far as pests and stuff, it should be doing its job.. what I like about SB? I love quiet but deadly accurate spycatchers, I hate the ones that always have to make a big production of their existence on the puter, with their offensive beeps and honks and farts. Good luck.
    Thank you, AL Inferno

    Spyware Blaster is a program that runs in the background and does not allow specific files (i.e Cookies) from entering your PC. You can be sure Spyware Blaster is working, by running Spybot and/or Ad-aware SE Personal/Professional and not catching many instances of Spyware.

    Incase you do not understand what I mean by background, I mean that it uses up either NO CPU Usage or VERY little CPU usage. therefore, it will not interfere with other programs, meaning no lag.
    Plus, doesn't the icon look cool? I mean, a guy with sunglasses... cant get much cooler than that :cool:

    Hi Al Inferno

    just read your reply to this question and nearly fell of my chair laughing, with the remarks beeps, honks and farts. What programs are you referring, as I turn the sounds of of any I may have just so I don't hear them.
