Hi - I'm brand new here but I've tried 4 searches for this particular problem in your various threads and couldn't find this one so I apologize if it's been asked and covered in another thread or post. If it has, just point me in the right direction. I have Windows XP Home and have used Spyware Blaster for months. Have version 3.1 and haven't had any problems. I went into "tools" and "hosts safe" and I have previously done 2 "backups" (last one in May) I thought I'd make another backup so I hit "create new backup" and this message popped up: Run-time error '70' Permission Denied OK Well -- guess that's not okay. Any suggestions?
