    Hey.
    I have been using spyware guard and spyware blaster for over a year now and find them to be excellent products. However I have a suggestion that I have been meaning to forward to you for quite a while which might improve the software in a small way.

    I get the message:
    Your interet explorer current homepage has been changed from
    http://www.yahoo.com
    to
    http://angels****ed.com/se.html
    Obviously some porn site is trying to get me to visit their page against my will. It seems spyware guard is preventing that, and I choose to "Restore old value" and not accept the new setting. The problem is that the same message pops up again after a couple of minutes and continues to do so repeatedly even though i always choose to restore the old value. I was wondering if you could add an option to save the user reply so that I dont have to keep choosing it again and again every 2 minutes. It would be very helpful.

    Hope you take my recommendation into account. Thanks for a great software and keep up the good work.
    Gary.

    Hi, and welcome to Wilders!

    If it is SpywareGuard making this message, then open the SG dialogue by right clicking your red SG in the taskbar. Then, hit "options." Click "download protection" and check the box "silently block," then "save settings" and close the dialogue.

    One other comment -- if you're getting the same message (regarding the same site, that is) repeatedly, I'd be willing to bet you've picked up spyware, maybe even even a worm, that's causing it. A thorough scanning/cleaning would seem to be in order.
