    I have recently encountered a Spyware program which appears to be missing from the SpyBlaster database, and I would like to suggest that it be included in a future update.

    The program in question is named "RIGHT CLICK HIDE" by TalyaSoft.

    It was detected by Spyware Guard and Pest Patrol, but not by SpyBlaster.

    Thing is some spywares are blocked by different software from Javacool.

    His spyware guard blocks them as executive files.

    However spyware blaster prevents the .dlls or active x ones from loading up.

    But I also meant to say the Right click hide thing is an executable file, so Spyware Guard detects it, because it protects different files to Spyware blaster which blocks Active X and .dll spywares.

    SpywareBlaster does not specify what method it uses to block spyware, but it gives the user the impression that it is designed "to allow users to prevent spyware installs" BEFORE they can actually install themselves on the unsuspecting victim's computer.

    Unfortunately, in the case of RightClickHide, SpywareBlaster appears to be unable to offer this implied protection..

    Although there are many programs which are able to detect Spyware, they only do so "after the fact" -- that is, AFTER the spyware has already been installed -- thus a user could naively believe himself/herself to be "protected" by SpywareBlaster and might assume that there is no urgency to run any of the other Spyware detection programs.

    What makes TalyaSoft's RightClickHide program extremely insidious is that it is supposedly intended to hide the user's Private or Confidential Files and Folders from unauthorized users of a particular computer, yet RightClickHide is capable of transmitting that same Private & Confidential information directly to Talyasoft itself.

    To make matters even worse, TalyaSoft's RightClickHide software is almost impossible to remove or uninstall, and
    even after it has been supposedly Deleted or Quarantined using SpyBot S&D or any similar program, it returns to the victim's computer later on. It can only be permanently purged from the computer by using sophisticated techniques.
