    Using SpywareBlaster 3.4, two items "slotchbar.com" and "windupdates.com" regularly exclude themselves from protection of Restricted Sites. When I see this I can check the appropriate boxes, but sure enough, later those boxes will have become unchecked and the entries are in red. How does this happen, and is there anything I can or should do to prevent it? Thanks in advance.

    Due to this recent post you made where you said.... "This is similar to my experience (see my post) - but using Adware Filter rather than AdAware"....I am fairly certain what you are seeing is simply a False positive results of an Adware Filter scan.

    Also....be advised there is a program called Adware Filter which is listed as one of the many scum bag programs on the Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products list....which I feel certain your program is.

    Oh dear - bamboozled, not for the first time. Thanks for the info about Adware Filter, very enlightening.
