    Hello.

    I have 2 problems with Spyware Blaster

    Problem #1:

    I have noticed a few people reporting problems
    with the window size of the program. I also have
    such a problem. I am using a monitor screen size
    of 800 X 600 with High Color (16 bit). This size
    is comfortable for me to use and screen fonts are
    not too small for me to read. Most applications
    are accommodated well by this screen size. However
    with Spyware Blaster, I am unable to see the whole
    page, and as there is no apparent way to resize
    the window, I am unable to access certain action
    links with my mouse, nor am I able to see the
    progress bar at the bottom of the screen as it
    loads the enabled protection.

    I have also noticed that if I change the screen
    size to 1024 X 768 with 256 colors, I am able to
    see everything just fine. However, as my eyesight
    is not too good, this is extremely difficult for
    me to read. Also, 256 colors is not always enough
    to show various graphical elements correctly.

    Is there a way to correct this problem so that I
    can continue using my normal screen size of
    800 X 600 with High Color with your application?


    Problem #2:

    My internet browser of choice is SeaMonkey, which
    is a new version of the Mozilla Suite browser. I
    have noticed that although the application seems
    to provide FireFox protection, my SeaMonkey
    application is not detected. Many applications
    which work with FireFox are usually also
    compatible with SeaMonkey.

    Is there a way to have Spyware Blaster detect
    SeaMonkey to provide the protection that it
    provides to Firefox?

    I would appreciate any assistance you can provide
    in resolving the above issues!!! TIA.

    Hi,

    The SpywareBlaster window displays fully at 800x600 resolution here, on a Windows XP test machine. (In fact, it was sized to accomodate 800x600 as the base resolution.)

    However an 800x600 resolution coupled with "Large size (120 DPI)" fonts selected can indeed cause an effect similar to what you're describing. Do you also have large fonts enabled?

    The current version of SpywareBlaster does support Seamonkey, but because the current version of Seamonkey uses a very old profile information file format there are occasionally times that SpywareBlaster can't detect Seamonkey profiles.

    This looks to be resolved completely with the upcoming Seamonkey 2.0, and SpywareBlaster will be updated to support that new browser version as it nears release. :)

    Best regards,

    I am currently writing this in SeaMonkey 1.1.13 & SpyWareBlaster does indeed protect the browser. I was not aware however that there had been problems with protecting SeaMonkey.

    Hi,

    To clarify: The only glitch is that, rarely, SpywareBlaster can't properly detect the Seamonkey profiles - and so protection for them isn't available (i.e. the option isn't displayed on the main SpywareBlaster screen).

    If you see the Seamonkey protection option on the SpywareBlaster main screen, SpywareBlaster was able to properly detect your Seamonkey profile(s) and protect them. :)

    Best regards,
