    I was just scrolling through the database list and found a cookie entry that wasn't protected. I checked it and clicked protect all. The success box pops up but the entry - mainentrypoint - is unchecked again and is still red.
    Version 2.6.1
    Database info date 3/09/04

    Hi stanman8810, and welcome to Wilders.

    I believe the MainEntryPoint cookie is related to CommonName (the same CLSID comes up for MainEntryPoint and CommonName)*edit. Do you know if you have Commonname on your computer?

    I have the MainEntryPoint and MainEntryPoint (2) checked in SpywareBlaster, but I do not know why it is not staying checked in your's.

    You could try adding it manually:
    Click on Tools -> Custom Blocking -> Add Item, and enter the name MainEntryPoint. Then put a check in the box beside the entry, and click the "Protect Against Checked Items".

    Then look at the database window and see if the box is checked there now and that the entry does not show up in red.

    If that doesn't work, then we'll have to wait to see Javacool's advises.

    *edit - ok, I could be wrong in the cookies relationship to CommonName....but the cookie may be associated with something you presently have on your computer. Have you cleared out your IE's temp files?
