    Downloaded your program today and installed. When checking with BPS, it showed 3 spyware components had been added to my registry. What's up? o_O

    SpywareBlaster does not install any spyware, nor does it install any other sort of unwanted software.

    It's possible you simply got some cookies from online (SpywareBlaster blocks many, but not all). It's also possible that the spyware was added before you installed SpywareBlaster.

    If you could provide details on exactly what was detected, it would be very useful. :)

    Thanks!

    Ah - it seems BPS is showing those certain items (part of SpywareBlaster's protection) as actual spyware - which they are not.

    You can safely ignore them in BPS, if an ignore option is available. (It apparently detected and removed a few components of SpywareBlaster's protection).

    Best regards,
