I was reading the questions about spyware guard and it said to see if spyware guard was working was to change your homepage. I went to tool, internet options, general and changed my homepage. It changed the name on the site you type into but when I checked it, my original homepage came up but I did not get a warning from spywareguard. Is there a way to shut off the system if needed? My shortcut icon on the desktop does absolutely nothing. Click it on and thats what you get. The icon in the taskbar brings up the program. Everything is checked in the program. No errors on download. Just downloaded it today. Can you shut it off by clicking on the icon in the taskbar? Most of the icons I have have a disable/enable popup. Spywareguard does not, you get the program when you click on the icon in the taskbar, single click or double click, right click or left click. How do I know it is working or even turned on if I did not get the security warning when I changed my home page?
