    Whenever SpywareBlaster adds restricted sites to my Windows Hosts file, CounterSpy insists that I authorize each entry individually!?

    This is a royal pain because there are so many and each authorization requires two clicks, one on the lower right of the screen and one in the middle.

    Of course, I COULD disable the CounterSpy host file monitor but then I'd never know if some other program modified my Windows Hosts file besides SpywareBlaster.

    So I need a fix. Any ideas?

    I assume you mean the Restricted Sites Zone, instead of the Hosts file? (SpywareBlaster doesn't add anything to the Windows Hosts file.)

    Unfortunately, there isn't anything we can do - that's how part of SpywareBlaster's protection works. You might want to contact Sunbelt (the makers of CounterSpy) and see if they have a recommended solution.

    You could also probably try disabling that protection temporarily, enabling SpywareBlaster, and re-enabling CounterSpy. Hopefully it will then just "accept" the changes SpywareBlaster has made, and won't ask you for every single one.

    Best regards,
