    Hello. I appreciate the free version of this program.:D I have ran it fir a couple of months and it has NEVER caught anything. I am sure I have the options set correctly as well as the updates. I click on "Enable all protection and all items are enabled". What's up? o_O Thanks.

    It's purpose is not to catch anything. Spywareblaster is a prevention type program. Perhaps some of the below Javacool KB articles would help you in understanding that mechanism.

    Does SpywareBlaster™ remove spyware?

    The 3 main functions of Spywareblaster are ActiveX, Cookie and Restricted Sites protection.

    • ActiveX: Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware / potentially unwanted software.
    • Cookie: Prevent ad / tracking cookies
    • Restricted Sites: Adds sites to the Restricted Sites zone, to restrict the actions of the sites in Internet Explorer.
