    I'm new to SpywareBlaster but have used Ad-aware and Spybot for some time. I went for SpywareBlaster for the fact it stops ActiveX components and spyware being installed so it doesnt even get onto my system!

    One question I do have though, to be protected, do I need to have SpywareBlaster open or is it still doing he job when its closed down?

    Will it also protect me against getting components installed via programs like ICQ - I always thought ICQ was secure but via 1 advert coming through ICQ Lite, I have been reciving ActriveX promots to install Gator, Gain and PrecisionTime!

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Hi sparkster :)

    Welcome to Wilders.

    As to your first question, SpywareBlaster is not a running app. so all u have to do is enable all protection then check for updates periodically.

    Explained here,

    Not to be an echo but straight from Spywareblaster when you try to minimize it.

    You must have clicked the "Do not show this message again" box the first time it came up.
