    SpywareBlaster is a prevention program, unlike most anti-spyware programs which utilize a "removal" approach after your system is already infected. SpywareBlaster effectively prevents ActiveX-based spyware, dialers, browser-hijackers and other malware or potentially unwanted programs from ever installing on your system in the first place.

    basically blocking it via kill bit entries
