thx for the update, I hope maybe the next Version will include a multilanguage GUI/Interface
thx and best regards,
Downloaded new 3.5.1. Works OK except: I have 256 Restricted Sites which are not disabled. Went to Restricted sites and manually checked each one and the hit the "Protect Against Checked Items" button. 3.5.1. went thru the gyrations and when finished all 256 were unchecked and in the red again.
What gives? Do I need to uninstall and reinstall
Hello and welcome to Wilders.
What other security apps do u have installed? Is SpySweeper one of them?
If so, look here,
Thanx. Worked just fine after closing SpySweeper.
I can't uninstall 3.4. When I go to Add/remove Programs, it says ...
The uninstall log file Spyware Balster/unins000.dat is in a format not recognized by this version of the uninstaller. Cannot uninstall.
(XP Pro SP2)
In the program list there is no uninstall option.
You input would be greatly appreciated.
PS : I love your program. It is very user friendly.
U can try reinstalling 3.4 over top in which SWB should show up in Add and Remove or u can go into Program Files>SpywareBlaster Folder and click on the unins000.exe file and uninstall from there.
Thanks. Problem solved. My Add/Remove Programs is corrupted & it is not a javacool problem but I certainly appreciate your very quick reply.
I went through regedit, deleted the HCKeys + got rid of old version through Windows Explorer. Then installed the new version & it is working perfectly.
Glad to see u got it sorted.
Oh and welcome to Wilders by the way.
@ Guest poster Swerver2003,
I have split your post out into a thread of it's own to better assist you.
Please follow this link---> still have 257 unprotected items
I have SpyBlaster 3.5.1 with a database from Jan 1. I noticed that there is a newer database but when I try to download I am unable to do so. I tried the alternative way but did not have any sucess.
If you just installed SpyBlaster 3.5.1, I suggest that you try to re-authorize spywareblaster.exe in your firewall and then try to download the updates again.
From the following (Last edited by javacool : January 1st, 2006 at 12:02 PM.) it appears that manual download(s) are not available:
SpywareBlaster Troubleshooting and Tips & Tricks
Hey everyone I have a major problem and I need serious help!
I have downloaded the new Spywareblaster 3.5.1 & Spyware Guard on my pc as I always have in the past for as long as I can remember, and I have never had any problems until now.
You see the programs run fine until I get to the update section and when I click to get the latest updates my screen freezes, you can't close the programs as they are embedded into the screen and wont close on command, I must force my computer off to get rid of it. The thing is, I have always had these programs and have not changed anything on my laptop, except update these programs for the new versions. I have un-installed and re-installed each about 5 times and always the same problem in the same place. I think the files are corrupted, so after all that, is there a quick fix that I may try? Because I believe that it would be a shame not to be able to use this program.
All suggestions welcome and thanks very much everyone in advance for your help
Hello Von_Dutchess and welcome to Wilders.

Thank-you ever so much for your super fast response!
Mission accomplished! It works now!
Thank-you so much for all your help - your a star!
Glad to see u got it sorted.
I have a problem with the new version (3.5.1). As advised, I disabled all protection, then unistalled the old SW. When started the new setup, evetything went fine, but after that when tried to run the new version I got this error:
My PC runs WinXP SP2, avast antivirus. Any help?
Take a look here,
Just installed 3.51 on a PC that had 3.4 and autoudate.
Forgot to uninstall 3.4 now SpywareBlaster locks up and PC has to be switched of to remove it from the screen - Task Manager dosent kill it.
Tried un-installing and running registry cleaner but still locks up.
2 copies of autoupdate are running as processes in Task Manager.
How can I completely remove all traces so I can reinstall?
Yup, everything's fine now. Thanks. Keep up the great work, people!
Good to see and you're welcome.
I've been a long time user of Spywareblaster. I just recently updated to 3.5.1 and I noticed after installing it and try to update I get this message:
"Error Connecting to Update Server
There was an error getting the update information from the server. The server may be temporarily unavailable, or there may be a conflict with firewall software installed on your pc. The update information file may also have gotten corrupted during download.
Please try again soon."
Now I can't even visit the javacoolsoftware website or wildersecurity using my home PC. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling.... nothing works.
Anyone experienced this or know the solution?
Spywareblaster 3.5.1 does not work on my computer.
When I try to use, message of "This program has been damaged, possibly by a bad sector of the hard drive or virus. Please reinstall it." is shown.
I installed it after scanned spywares by SpyBot-SD and Ad-aware, and viruses by Virusbaster2005.
Spywareblaster works on "safe mode".
OS is WinXP home SP2.
it does not work it locks up two different computers! downloads of protection can not be added in no matter what is done.
