Hi All - "udmh" here, i'm not expert in anything electronic, and this is my first post. I've used SpywareBlaster for nearly a year on my Toshiba laptop, and it's always scanned like lightning. But on friday 01oct10, the new 4.4 version took a slow, sobbing, 30 seconds or more to complete a scan. My laptop also slowed to a crawl, with sluggish e-mail, and websites arriving slowly, then proceeding at snail speed. A few minutes after startup, all was back to almost repeat almost normal. All my malware detection programs said the laptop was clean. BTW, when i tried the new 4.4 in Safe Mode, it ran like a streak. No hesitation whatever (Dumb move? Well, i said i'm no expert. In any case, it encouraged me do e-mail and other stuff in Safe Mode until i figure out what's going on). Any ideas?
