    Hi everyone,

    Just found this nice forum site and have learned quite a bit going over the previous threads.

    My question is I currently only have Spysweeper(recently updated to v3.0) on my system. Works without any problems or slowdowns and has quite a few security features for IE, but I just recently switched to Firefox 0.9. I run scans on my system and haven't found any spyware. I know Spysweeeper monitors my system and IE, but does it monitor Firefox? I've also had Spysweeper scan just the Mozilla folder without finding anything. Would anyone recommend a second program? I've read good things about Spywareblaster, but I know v3.1 currently doesn't recognize Firefox 0.9. The one feature about Spywareblaster I like is that it doesn't run in the background. I prefer to have only one service running, like having one antivirus running, while having another for on demand.

    Thanks for your help and replies. :)

    Hi,

    Just a quick note: the 3.2 version of SpywareBlaster, which should correctly recognize Firefox 0.9 and up, should be available very soon. :)

    Best regards,

    SpywareBlaster works on my computer and quite a few other people around here that have Firefox 0.9/0.9.1 without any problems, but it doesn't seem to work for everybody.
