    I have spywareblaster but when I run programs like avg anti-spyware and spybot they still find lots of spyware I thought spywareblaster prevented spyware getting on your pc

    What type of spyware are you finding? What other security programs are you running and if you are using IE7, how do you have it set up to handle cookies?

    spywareblaster prevents spyware but only so much it can't block everything just like one scanner can't catch everything.

    Hi,

    Could you please check and see if the programs you used provide some sort of scan log / report that you could post for us to take a look at? (I'd be very interested in seeing just what they detected.)

    Best regards and thanks,

    I can't imagine the difficulty in writing a scanner that would find and remove every piece of crapola on the planet, or block them either (Spyware Blaster).
    The problem is that the list of malware changes from minute to minute.

    Just as I use different programs to scan for spyware, I also use several different programs to block spyware.

    To be 100% safe on the internet, you really have to get aggressive with your spyware blocking.

    Cheers Mates!
