Spyware Blaster isn't an active program. What it basically does is add thousands of known bad sites to the Restricted list and Block lists in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera, the idea being that if you do stumble on these sites the browser will work with them only in limited mode hence reducing the ability to infect you (which is pretty common with Internet Explorer and "bad" sites because some of them you only need to visit them once and you're infected).

Think of Spyware Blaster as transparent protection, but any decent spyware program resident scanner should be good.

So... thanks for the info....that explains why i never was able to see it leaving a footprint. THis being said can you run both Spyware Blaster & Spyware Guard on the same machine at the same time? :)
