I have just installed Spyware Guard supposedly with the shortcut on the desktop, and, of course, listed in the Program listings. Both are in place. However, double clicking the icon on the desktop does nothing, and clicking on the link in the Programs does nothing. What is the point of having these two options if they do not open the program. An icon does appear in my system tray, and it does open the program; however, this is the one place I do not want to have it. I assume it is working in the background as stated. I have Windows XP, and installed the mini version as directed, uninstalled it, and installed the full version ----- Same thing!
