    Hi,
    I removed SpywareBlaster 3.5.1 and started to install SpywareBlaster 4.0. The installer told me the file Program Files: SpywareBlaster already exists and do I want to use that folder anyway? I canceled the install and looked in the folder. I have the following files in this folder:

    customblocking.txt
    ssave0.sss
    sslist.sss

    Should I install into that SpywareBlaster folder with the above files in it, or should I delete the folder? I'm not able to view the sss files, but I think they may have to do with a snapshot.

    I'd appreciate a quick response since I'm feeling unprotected without SpywareBlaster installed.

    Thank you.

    Sincerely, Libra

    Did you disable all protection before uninstalling 3.5? I had no folder left when I upgraded.

    Yes, I did disable all protection before I used add/remove. (I used the Quick Links on the first page to disable protection.)

    Hi,

    You can install into that folder with the files in it.

    Those are just your custom blocking list and a saved System Snapshot. You can keep them if you want. :)

    Best regards,

    Then I will make an guess and say yes they are safe to delete. Folder and all. Hopefully Javacool will pop in and confirm or correct me.
    I am basing this on my upgrade experience on an XP Pro machine.


    Edited; Thank you Javacool. Guess I was close with my answer.

    Thank you so much, Javacool, for explaining what the files are and that I could install into that same directory. The install went fine.

    Thank you for all that you do to protect all of us.

    Sincerely, Libra
