    It seems that I had to update to v 4.5 to continue to use SpywareBlaster. Is this correct? Do I have to update to the new version of SpywareBlaster every time there is a new release or is v 4.5 a special case?

    Considering there are long waits between versions it's not really a hardship to download and install over the top. Is it?

    A new version isn't coming out every month from my experience so it's not that often :)

    Edit: I see Ade1 beat me :p

    Thanks. I didn't mean to be critical. I just wanted confirmation. And the updates, as you said, are not that frequent. This is a good and very reliable product, so I don't mind this small inconvenience. Anything contributing to the continuing excellence of this software is fine by me.

    Hi,

    Currently, SpywareBlaster version updates are indeed mandatory. (They often tweak the way updates are handled / downloaded, and have other important bug fixes and enhancements, so it's important that everyone has the latest release.)

    If you have AutoUpdate, it can automatically upgrade when new versions of SpywareBlaster are released. (It's also a great way to help support continued development of the software.)

    Best regards,
