    When I install SpywareBlaster 3.1 on my XP Home system, it installs fine, but when I try to run it it says:
    "This Program has been damaged, possibly by a bad sector of the harddrive or a virus. Please reinstall it."
    ..I did and nothing...
    I scanned for viruses and defragged, and nothing.
    What's going on?

    Sorry..I just found the other threads..but!!!...
    After running the pestscan.com scan and cleaning its findings, I re-ran Adaware and OOO..My antivirus caught a .dll file that was labled "TrojanStartPage" that was in Adaware's program file's folder.
    The file is called
    "rundll32.dll"
    and I noticed it before, but my AV never caught it cuz the autodetect was turned off...and it only caught it when it Adaware 'caught' the possible browser hijack...so maybe Adaware's some kind o culprit?...I dunno..it seemed worth addressing...
