I am not new to the computing world . I know a little about spyware . lol . I am confused though and would appreciate some input . I hear so much about how wonderful SpywareBlaster and Spyware Guard are . To me , IE can do what SpywareBlaster does . Disable Active X . That i9s not the point though . If Spyware Guard is sooooo good , why was it last updated back on January 22 ? When other AS programs , MOST OF THEM I THINK , update alot more frequently than that . I do not use it but , looked into it as a possible layer on top of what I have . I use Outpost and it takes care of what Spyware Blaster does so , that is covered . Not wanting to stir anything up but , I hear how good Spyware Guard is but , no evidence of why . Thanks for the help . I use MS right now ( Giant ) but , we all know MS will screw it up in time .
