    I need some help, please. I've just installed Javacool's SpywareBlaster v3.2, and am in the part where you configure Internet Explorer protection....
    have clicked the "Prevent the installation of Active-X based spyware, dialers, etc."

    Okay, so the window shows a long list of Active-X, followed by cookies (like Flyswat, Gator, etc) that are listed in black with the box beside each checked....
    BUT -
    also within this list of cookies are some items shown in RED BOLDFACE and ARE NOT CHECKED, for example:
    247Media (3)
    2o7.net
    7AdPower
    8AD
    911Promotion
    AdFlow
    Ad-Logics
    AdOrigin.com
    [there are others]

    QUESTION: Why are these shown in red and boldface and why are they not checked?

    I'm not quite sure what, if anything, I'm supposed to do here. Should I check them?

    Thanks!

    Hi midtown,

    Under "Quick Tasks" did you click on Enable All Protection? If not, then click that first, then check again to see if any of the items still show up in red.

    Okay, thanks. No, I had not done that.
    Did that - now no red and all are checked.
    Thanx.
