    I use Spywareblaster.
    I think it is good.
    BUT ! I get the following shortcuts on my screen everytime I use it.

    I delete these shortcuts - but they still return when I next use the programme.
    Can anyone advise on how to get rid of them - pemanently!
    Thank you!

    move the .exe from your desktop to another location, like c:\program files\spywareblaster, then create a shortcut to the exe on ur desktop

    That's correct - it sounds like you dragged the spywareblaster.exe to your desktop. Those "shortcuts" you are seeing are not actually shortcuts - they are files SpywareBlaster needs to run. If you reinstall SpywareBlaster to a folder (ex. C:\Program Files\SpywareBlaster) and simply right-click on the file and select "create shortcut" you can then drag the file named "Shortcut to SpywareBlaster" to your desktop.

    Best regards,
