What is the difference between SpywareGuard 2.2 and SpywareBlaster 3.1????
Both programs are put out by the same company,so is one better then the other???? Which one should I install to prevent SPYWARE from installing or should I install both???? I already have and am using AD-WARE free version.
Also,any views on AD-WARE PLUS or SPYWAREXTERMINATOR programs???? <_< :D :D

Spywareguard runs constantly on your system and tells you when you are about to get spyware. Spyblaster offers protection without using your systems resources (i.e. RAM). It tells Internet Explorer what spyware sites not allow you to download from, stops pop-ups from telling you to install spyware, and blocks spy cookies. We strongly recommend installing Spywareblaster and keeping it updated. <_<

We don't recommend paying money for Ad-Aware Plus when you can get the same protection for free with Spywareblaster :D. Also, no need to install "Spyware Exterminator", as SpywareBlaster will do an ample job of keeping your system spyware free. :D

SpywareBlaster will not allow you to get ANY spyware in the first place <_<. If you're really worried, go ahead and install SpywareGuard as well. It will warn you of any spyware about to be put on your system. But I don't think it will be needed if you already have Spywareblaster on your system. It's your choice.

I just installed SPYWAREBLASTER. This program doesn't flag me that SPYWARE
has been stopped does it and is there a way to see what it blocked or does it just stop it. Also,should I still run occassional scans with AD-WARE????

Occasional scans with Ad-Aware AND Spybot S&D are highly recommended. Spywareblaster will prevent almost all, about 95%. You will have to go to a lot of bad sites before you'll see any spyware on your system. The Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D scans will pick these up. But as a whole, running and keeping SpywareBlaster updated will keep your system spyware-free <_<.
