    Hello Forum,
    Do you need to download IE-SPYAD if you have SpyWareBlaster installed.

    It won't hurt, but they are two totally different applications.
    IE-SPYAD will redirect a load of bad sites to the host (127.0.0.1)
    Spywareblaster is preventing bad ActivX downloads by setting the 'killbit' for those in the registry.
    So it could be an extra layer of protection.

    Spywareblaster provides 3 main protections....ActiveX, Cookie and Restricted Site protection for Internet Explorer.

    IE-Spyad's purpose is to add approximately 23,000 URL\IP site entries to Internet Explorers Restricted Site Zone. Further comments can be found in this recent Spywareblaster\IE-spyad thread.
