I've been using SpywareBlaster 2.7.* for several months now, and have been very impressed. I just updated to 3.1 and am considering subscribing the the auto-update feature. However, before I do so I would like to see if you can advise me about a problem I'm having. It takes the 3.1 control panel about 5 minutes to load. Setting up 3.1 (enabling all the protections) took about 30 minutes. Can you tell me why it seems to get wrapped up for so long? I'm running Windows ME with a cable modem. Your help would be appreciated.
