I think SpywareBlaster is great and wouldn't be without it, installed the new version successfully and have not detected any slowdown or adverse effects in the performance of my computer. But then again, I am not a software or computer expert. I personally wish to thank Javacool for creating this great program and offering it for free. It has been a godsend as far as I am concerned. On another forum there has been an issue brought up that your new SB creates undesirable registry entries . The following are some of the comments made by the original poster regarding the registry: a] These quotes were actually from two different people in two forums. b] This person is a partner in a website which designs webpages and promotes free software and his opinions are generally well thought of in the forum. The following are comments posted by the orginal poster, of the opinions on the website from where this information was derived and to which no site link was provided. 1. This new version stores a huge chunk of the database in your registry" and goes on to say that it bloats the registry. 2. The main problems of a bloated registry are; drastically decreases performance Can lead to corruption of the registry " Javacool, would you please comment on the above. Other opinions are also welcome. Thank you.
