    Everytime I go to tools and then to hosts safe I can create a backup of the hosts file but when I delete a backup I get the confirmation message but when I click yes to delete the backup I get an error message and the spywareblaster program closes. The error message says "Run-time error 9 subscript out of range"

    Is this a bug and if so when will a fix be available. If there is no fix available yet is there a workaround for this bug?

    BTW I am using spyware blaster 2.5.3 and windows 98

    Very interesting - I can't seem to reproduce this problem.

    Can you post more specifics about your computer system, such as how much RAM you have, and what programs you usually have running in the background? (ex. anti-virus, firewall, etc.)

    Best regards and thanks,

    My computer is a 1.0ghz amd athlon with 511mb RAM running windows 98 second edition. I use norton internet security for a firewall and norton antivirus 2001 for anti virus software. I use internet explorer 6.

    BTW I have installed the VB runtime files mentioned.

    I have tried shutting down everything running in background (firewall, anti virus and other programs) but still get the same error message. Also I've noticed that the hosts backups created show up in the list of backups as '0' instead ofshowing 'hosts backup - then the date and time of creation'

    Ah - thank you for this bit of information.

    I haven't been able to reproduce this error yet, but with the information above I will hopefully be able to narrow down what could be the cause.
