I was having a bad problem of some webpages not displaying, and really bad crashes on SP2 which would TOTALLY lock up IE and it would take a dozen attempts at cont-alt-del to close the IE window (which in turn would close ANY open IE windows as well). This unfortunately was traced to SpywareBlaster; specifically the checkbox in the IE area for "Prevent the installation of ActiveX based spyware, dialers, etc.". Checking that box caused several websites to not display ANY content, and sometimes crash, and confusingly SP2 displayed ***WINDOWS information*** about the block and what to do, and absolutely NOTHING about SpywareBlaster came up! This is why it took so long to figure out the cause of the problem. If the creators of SpywareBlaster treat this as they did with the serious slow down issues in loading the program, enabling OR disabling protection (several posts on that here), I doubt this will EVER get fixed. This new issue circumvents the purpose of "SP2's better security features" since you have to DISABLE some protection features of SpywareBlaster! I've changed security settings in Internet Options, and that didn't help anything. It would take WEEKS to individually check/uncheck each box listed in this specific area of Blaster to find out exactlly which module/plugin is causing the problem due to the "minutes to load or enable/disable" anything issue. I tried to search the registry for Blaster entries and its blocking tags, but they are not in the registry! (So, where are they??) I was going to try and selectively delete them from there since that would be LOADS faster. Further complicating things is the fact that what's in the Blaster list of blocked ActiveX is NOT in alphabetical order! Again this DOES NOT happen on SP1. PLEASE guys, please come up with an update for this, as well as the slow down issue. Thank you. I've attached a screen shot of an example of what Blaster is causing. If you "view source" on that page, ALL of the HTML code is there for the ACTUAL PAGE, and NOT for this animation! It's some kind of an "overlay", yet UNDERNEATH that overlay, IS the actual page! Yes, with Blaster ACTIVE, it TELLS you to install something! Yet with it INACTIVE, you get no prompt to install anything! That's backwards, since nothing is installed anyway when it's inactive!
