I have spywareblaster installed. When I click on the icon to check for updates, it says loading protection. Does that mean that it is not on until you click on the icon? or does it work in the background when you turn on your computer automatically? Also will spyware guard (which I haven't downloaded yet) work with most antivirus and firewall programs. I have Norton firewall and antivirus 2005 installed, along with Spybot, HJT, and adware SE. Can you turn off spywareguard if needed?
