I already have SpywareGuard and it seems to be doing fine. I was just wondering if I should use both SpywareBlaster and SpyGuard or just stick with using SpywareGuard by itself.

They do different things.

SpywareBlaster is resident protection. It puts a list of bad sites in Internet Explorer's blocked sites list so that you are not able to download activex componenets from those sites.

SpywareGuard is an active protection. It watches your computer in certain places and any time a change is made there, it either blocks it or asks you if its ok.

They are completely different and you would be better off running both.

I've never used SpywareGuard before, mainly because reviews I've read of it on the 'Net gush about it - but nag on the one little fact that the software hasn't been updated for ages. For that reason alone I'm quite put off by the idea of downloading SpywareGuard because seriously, awesome as it may be, I just don't feel completely comfortable knowing that I'm using some program that hasn't seen an update in goodness knows how long.

I do however, use SpywareBlaster and it is really quite fabulous. It also offers real-time protection, but on a separate level - that is, it is protecting your PC, but it doesn't leave an icon on your taskbar, so basically you get that extra bit of security without having all those teeny icons cluttering up your desktop. Pretty good deal, if you ask me. Plus - it is free, fast, and takes up almost no resources at all. Nothing much else can beat that. :tazz:

Have to agree SpywareBlaster does the trick for me :tazz:

Here's what I use and it keeps my machine bug free:

FireFox
Spybot S&D with TeaTimer
Adaware SE for scans
MS Anti Spyware with resident.
AVG Free for Anti Virus
