    note:spywareblaster is a passive antispyware program where spybot is an active antispyware program with a scaner.it is very good at removing some very evilware,but i think Kav antispyware is better.

    Hi there,

    If you're using Firefox or Opera, you don't really need SpywareBlaster as it is a proactive application against activeX downloaded from malware (you can keep it as it has practically no impact on your system).

    Having SuperAntiSpyware running real time makes Spybot S&D absolutely redundant.

    KIS + SuperAntiSpyware + Firefox/Opera will make your system very safe if you like scanners.

    KIS and SAS Pro= No need for Spyware Blaster or Spybot S&D!
    Use Opera instead of Firefox! Opera is Faster, more Secure, and more Stable than Firefox!

    Cheers, :)

    You're alright, you may want to add a Site Advisor-like addon(ex. Site advisor, WOT, linkscanner etc.) if you frequently visit a lot of websites.

    If you want to use Opera there isn't and you don't need any addon, since it already uses the Finjan and Haute Secure blacklist.
