    Hi Guys,

    I have just downloaded and installed SpyWareBlaster. I note the disclaimer re: commercial programs which may need to be re-installed. Before I run SWB, I would like to know if there is a list of such programs available. I have a huge number of programs on my machine, all of which I use, and the prospect of re-installing (or having to do without) these is daunting. Spybot S&D gives my machine a clean bill of health.

    I would appreciate some reassuranceo_O

    Hi dreamer,

    Welcome at Wilders. :)

    As a rule of thumb: if Spybot S&D was unable to find any spyware on your computer and you were using the latest definitions, then you have nothing to worry about.
    AFAIK SpywareGuard does not stop anything that is not also found by Spybot S&D.
    The difference here being that SpywareGuard stops it before it gets installed, and Spybot removes it after it was installed.

    Regards,

    Pieter
