ok it happend one day and i didn't pay attention but now i'd like to reinstall spywareblaster. the problem is when i start spywareblaster in XP i can see it in Window Task Manager running and it takes 100% CPU usage, but i don't see any the GUI of the program. checked the taskbar and everything. but this is not everything. after few secs of spywareblaster running @ 100% in Task Manager Window i see it's not responding and the only way to kill it is to end the task. i did fresh reinstall (uninstalled and reinstalled to diff directory). thanks in advance for any info on this weird situation. thanks btw i don't have any popup blockers (using firefox) and i disable TeaTimer from Spybot (thought it might be blocking something) but it didnt help.
