    I am running spyblaster 3.2 on windows 98 on an older computer. I would like to update and it tells me to uninstall the old program before installing the new one. It says to go to controlpanel and add/remove programs, but spyblaster is not listed there. I also have My Uninstaller , a program for such use, and spyblaster is not listed there either. How can I uninstall it prior to installing the new update. Please I need help. Thank You

    Hi chief1966,
    May be the uninstall file is corrupted. Try to re-install
    Version 3.2 first. :)

    Hey Antartica,
    Thank you for your answer, but everywhere I look they only want to offer 3.3 for download. Do you have a site where I can download 3.2? I dont have the installation file in my file for spyware blaster.

    Hi Ron. :)

    I edited your email addy to protect it from Harvesters and Spambots. ;)

    As to your problem, try reinstalling then uninstalling. See if that works.

    Hi roncarhome,

    Yes, it is preferred to uninstall 3.2 first, but since you are unable to do that, then try installing version 3.3 overtop of the older version.

    Regards,
