    Requirements:

    Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10. (32 and 64-bit)


    Provides Protection for the Following Browsers:
    • Internet Explorer
      and any browsers that use the Internet Explorer engine, including:
      • AOL web browser
      • Avant Browser
      • Slim Browser
      • Maxthon (formerly MyIE2)
      • and more
    • Google Chrome
    • Mozilla Firefox
    • Netscape
    • Seamonkey
    • Pale Moon
    • K-Meleon

    Slim Operation:

    As always, SpywareBlaster doesn't use any services, drivers, or anything that constantly runs in the background, consuming your computer's memory and processing time. You just open SpywareBlaster, set your protection, and close it - you're protected.

    And it works great with other reputable security and privacy applications, including anti-virus, anti-trojan, and even other anti-spyware programs. There's no such thing as a 100% effective solution, and SpywareBlaster was designed from day one to be a compatible, effective part of any security setup you may want to configure.

    Upgrading Tips:

    To upgrade SpywareBlaster from a previous version you can either:
    (a) Download and install the new version of SpywareBlaster "over-the-top".
    (b) Uninstall the old version of SpywareBlaster first. Please see the detailed upgrade instructions here: http://www.brightfort.com/sbupdate.html

    Either method should work.

    I use Opera, so I can't use SpywareBlaster. But I used it in the past, and I like it as a strong first line defense. :thumb:

    I copied my Firefox profile into Cyberfox and the blocked cookies list is filled by SpywareBlaster.

    It shouldn't be that hard to add cyberfox & opera support to the app, it would be nice if this could be done javacool.

    I would have done this, had I have Firefox installed.
    So I still need the developers to put this into the next update.
    And yes, I have tried the trick of copying cyberfox's profile into a firefox created folder and it still does not work.
    So will have to be a little more patient.
