    I got Spyware Blaster specifically to quickly restore my IE settings when a bug in a corporate IE policy push trashes them. I'm not interested in backing up *all* of my system settings, but I don't see any documentation of what settings are saved in the snapshot feature. They flash by as the snapshot is being done, but it's too fast for me to catch.

    Anyone know what all is being saved?

    Thanks,

    Rebeccah

    If i'm not mistaken, i think it's mostly just various browser settings.

    As snowbound said....the snapshot remembers various browser settings(Start\Local page, Search pages, User agent, Restrictions, Windows Title, BHO's....etc....) for Currrent User and Local Machine. It also remembers other important Windows settings such as the Run entries\Start-up, Protocols, Downloaded Program Files and quite a few more.

    Since it is a very small file....if hard drive space is limited....it is not a concern.
