    Negative....IE-Spyad adds sites to IE'S Restricted Sites list and the SpywareBlock list "blocks known "dubious" ActiveX controls from running inside Internet Explorer by setting the "Kill Bit"."

    The SpywareBlock list is like SpywareBlasters IE ActiveX protection.

    So if someone already uses spyblaster, there is no need for spyware block list right?

    It has been a number of months since I have compared their respective databases but at that time a majority of their entries mirroed each other. That was then....I do not know about now. I will take a closer look in the coming days unless someone else comes along with a comparison update in the mean time.
