    I'm a little confused as to how Spyware Blaster protects your system. I've consulted the Help files and support documentation on this forum and JavaCool, but cant find any answers.

    I've read all the information as to what it protects against, but wanted to know how the software actually does this.

    After installing Spyware Blaster, I got a notification saying that Spyware Blaster doesn't have to be running to work.

    Does this indicate that the software works not by offering real time protection (in the same way that anti virus software runs in the background all the time) but by locking down your browser and immunizing it against known threats?

    I'm just looking for some clarification really.

    Thanks in advance,

    Ben

    It doesn't 'run' as such. It just sets 'kill bits' in the registry which prevents spyware installing in the first place. Just update regularly and enable all protection.
    HTH and Cheers.
