    Hello my name is Dustyn... (AKA: Dusty)

    Does SpywareBlaster 3.5.1 offer complete protection with Windows XP Professional x64-bit Edition? For example, are the blacklisted, tracking cookies, and fraudulent sites placed in the correct registry key in XP64?

    XP64 and XP32 uses two different registry keys:

    XP64 uses: ESCDOMAINS and ESCRANGES
    XP32 uses: DOMAINS and RANGES

    I discovered this little problem with IESPYAD not being able to provide protection on an XP64/2003 Server OS. IESPYAD is by default designed to put all the restricted sites into that XP32 registry key. It does not even take into account that XP64 uses DIFFERENT registry key locations! :'(

    In effect, I get ZERO bad sites listed in IE7 restricted sites because IESPYAD put all those sites in the wrong REGKEY location!! :mad:

    So back to the topic at hand...
    How does SpywareBlaster 3.5.1 fare at completely protecting an XP64/2003 Server OS?

    Thanks for any help you may provide me with. :)

    Will investigate further.
    Looks like it might just affect IE-SPYAD2 and not IESPYAD.
