    Is it possible for something to come in and reset the kill bit?

    I've enabled all protection for both IE and the restricted sites, however after awhile on the Net if I open Spyware Blaster it will tell me somethings have been disabled. The latest being the "searchforit toolbar". All spyware programs running say I have a clean system and I renable protection.

    It seem others have had this problem as well.

    That's right, other people are having a similar problem, however, it has nothing to do with SpywareBlaster undoing protections or losing protections... It has to do with other anti-spyware products incorrectly removing some of SpywareBlaster's protections.

    Unfortunately, there is nothing SpywareBlaster can do to prevent other anti-spyware tools from removing the protections it sets. Those other products must stop doing that. See these threads for more on this issue:
