Since yesterday, I have been getting this error each time I try to open SpywareBlaster (I do this to look for updates each time I switch my PC on). "Error: Access violation at 0x771248A4 (tried to read from 0x2E2E2E2A), program terminated." I notice a lot of problems relating to Spybot updates (I fully uninstalled this over a year ago and have never experienced any SpywareBlaster problems until today). One observation of my own is that Windows Defender updated yesterday, and I think BOClean did the day before. Could these be the cause(s) of my problem? Like I said, this has never happened before. I've been using it in conjunction with the above software for as long as I can remember without any trouble. I would try uninstalling/reinstalling, but I can't get SpywareBlaster to open for me to disable all protection first (as advised here for an uninstall before update: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/sbupdate.html). I'm running XP SP3 with NOD32 2.7. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
