I have a totally tricked out, squeeky clean puter, running Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 1. Have been running Spybot and Ad-aware, as well as Norton System Works 2003 One Button Checkup religiously. Just installed SpywareBlaster 2.5.3 for the first time. It seems to work perfectly except for one feature: Tools => Hosts Safe => Create New Backup Upon executing this feature, I get a popup msg reading: "Run-time error 9: Subscript out of range" Upon clicking OK, the SpywareBlaster program crashes. Unlike earlier Windows versions the hosts file for Windows XP Pro is located at: Windows => system32 => drivers => etc => lmhosts This file is no longer named "hosts" but "lmhosts" When I checked the etc folder I found a newly created file named "HOSTS" with nothing in it. Is this a SpywareBlaster bug, or am I missing something. Thanks. Jusletgo PS: I have always protected this "lmhosts" file with a "Copy of" in the same directory.
