    I noticed that Spyware blaster does not have a "load on boot" option. Does that mean everytime I boot up windows I have to click on the spyware blaster Icon to start protection ? :doubt:

    Nope; SB doesn't need to be active in order to "start protection".

    Once you update the database and tell SB to protect you from all items listed, that's it; you're protected, and you can shut down the application!

    SB does this by setting a so called kill-bit in the Registry, preventing all ActiveX based Spyware, adware, browser hijackers and dialers in its database to install in the first place.
