    Does anyone know how Spyware-Guides Blocklist file http://www.spywareguide.com/blockfile.php compares to SpywareBlaster?
    After reading about SpywareBlaster I found Spyware_Guides Blockfile. Are they pretty much the same or do I need both?..
    Thanks much for any advice..

    Spyware-Guide.com's Spyware Block List File contains 109 ActiveX Control Kill-bits, as of today's download. SpywareBlaster contains more than twice that number. Also, SpywareBlaster has the spyware cookie list that it blocks, plus the extra tools you see when you run it.

    I don't know if Spyware-Guide's registry file contains any ActiveX items that aren't in SpywareBlaster. It may, it may not. It would not hurt you to download their .reg file and execute it. If they are duplicates, it doesn't hurt anything. But, if you stopped using SpywareBlaster and only used the other list, you'd have less protection.

    Here's another thread with a little more info on this:

    I hope this helps,
