    Hi,

    How do I guard myself to malicious sites like hxxp://paintheory.com/ ?
    ( DO NOT CLICK ! ! ! ! ! ! ! )

    The site installed a lot of ****, even with your software running. I am up to date with the updates, so ? I choose for freeware at least to test, but now I am thinking of going to pay adaware.

    Actually, it is the iframe that does the trick:
    hxxp://2awm.com/pop/get.php?user=vladixx

    so do NOT NOT NOT click on THAT url ! ! ! (did on purpose hxxp: i.s.o. http: )

    The page contains javascript with a KNOW MS bug!!!
    In the time a DialogWindow is loading, an URL is REPLACED in the TOP window. Bwah, I hate MS for this ****.

    Get the code yourself:
    view-source:http://2awm.com/pop/get.php?user=vladixx
    Then copy all text from 'eval( .. da da da ..' to '.. da da ));'
    Open my handy tool:
    http://home.wanadoo.nl/r.hankel/javascript_en_vbscript_debug.html
    In the first window PASTE the text, change the word 'eval' into 'print' and click 'voer javascript uit' (evaluate javascript in Dutch, sorry for that).

    Stupid Microsoft! (sigh) still no update!!!!

    Umm, if I'm not mistaken, SpywareGuard doesn't prevent the execution of scripts off webpages (I believe there are other tools designed to do just that). SG stops malicious ActiveX controls and executables from "silently" installing themselves by alerting the user of their presence. It's SpywareBlaster that places certain sites in IE's restricted zone (where the security level is set to "High", thus preventing the execution of scripts off these specific websites).

    Here is some more info on what SpywareGuard does.

    By the looks of it, it would appear that the particular site you're referring to isn't included in SpywareBlaster's database (yet?). I am certainly not the right person to provide the most accurate information, though, so it's best to wait for an official answer from the programme's creator (and if I'm wrong, I'll stand corrected). :)
