I have both SpywareBlaster and Spybot installed. Do I really need both????
I don't really notice SpywareBlaster doing anything and everytime I run a scan
with Spybot I always find spyware to remove so what is SpywareBlaster actually doing????
By the way,I check for updates daily!!!!

Spywareblaster prevents spyware from getting on your computer. Once you enable it the first time that is all you need to do. When you restart your computer it automatically kicks in. Spybot removes spyware that is already on your computer. It is very important to keep both of these programs updated.
