    I am using SpywareGuard 2.2.0, SpywareBlaster, Spybot- Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware se Personal, ZoneAlarm 5.5.062 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal 5.0.227 and my modem / router has a NAT firewall included. I never disable them, I run them constantly, I update them every day, and I do scans every day. The Kaspersky auto updates every six hours. Yet when I run scans with the Ad-Aware and the Spybot I consistently detect and fix / repair / remove “problems”…some of which, but not limited to, are AvenueA, Inc, DoubleClick, Advertising.com, FastClick, and WebTrendsLive. What is going on ?

    Also the Definitions Information for the SpywareGuard indicates the definitions date to be 1/22/04 and there are no reports in the Activity Log.

    In SpywareBlaster under the settings tab for Internet Explorer protection, I am unable to configure it to “Prevent spyware/tracking cookies. (requires IE 6 or later)”. The check off box is grayed out. I have IE 6.0.2600.0 (IE6 SP1) .

    Thanks for the help.

    Hey mucka,

    I have moved your thread to the Spywareblaster\SpywareGuard dedicated Forum.

    As you may or may not know....those entries are most probably tracking cookies and if we can fix your Spywareblaster tracking cookie problem....that will help in keeping those AvenueA, Doubleclick etc cookies in check.

    If you would....Please check the condition of you Privacy tab in Internet Explorer via IE\Tools\Internet Options\Privacy.

    That is the latest definition update and as for the activity log....what operating system are you using and if it's NT based(2000\XP)....do you have Admin priviligies ?

    Hi Bubba,

    Thanks for your quick reply

    I am sorry I posted my question in the wrong place. I have had very little experience with forums and none at all on this one. I really need to review the newbie info.

    I am aware they are tracking cookies, but that is about all I know. The Privacy tab in IE is set to MEDIUM. The Security tab is also set to MEDIUM. I don’t recall ever altering the settings, but I thought they were set higher than that. Actually, I would not know where to set them. Is it possible something changed them?

    I’m sorry I neglected to denote this info earlier: Dell Dimension 4100, Windows ME (with, I believe, all the updates), Pentium III, 930 MHz, 128K RAM...if you need to know this.

    When I installed SpywareBlaster (works fine) and then SpywareGuard, I encountered a problem with the latter program. When it loads it seems fine but then after 20-30 seconds I get a "run-time error 429 Active X component can not create object" error message. Any help would be much appreciated. Jim Wood

    The next SGMAIN screen gives me two options cancel or details. When I click on the details button I get the following information:

    SGMAIN caused an invalid page fault in
    module <unknown> at 0000:00000000.
