Software Product Description

Advertisement
SpywareBlaster doesn't scan and clean for spyware--it prevents it from ever being installed. SpywareBlaster blocks the installation of spyware ActiveX controls (such as Lop.com and Xupiter) in its database, and can even prevent them from running if they are installed. The built-in Check for Updates feature allows quick and easy database updates (released frequently). Information on all spyware covered in the database is also provided.

SpywareBlaster does not need to be running in the background - simply select the items you wish to be protected against (or select all items), press the Protect button, and protection is enabled. It can also block spyware/tracking cookies, and includes a System Snapshot feature, which allows you to take a snapshot of your computer in its clean state and later revert many changes made by spyware and browser hijackers.

"v- 4.5"

Pros: SB 4.5 now supports FF and Pale Moon 8.0+ Installed size: 5.3mb; free manual updates (try ~weekly) It doesn't "run" , it "works" via your browser as HOST settings (passive protection/immunization) so sites/content in its database won't load Mostly geared to IE engine (I have Pale Moon, seems to just do tracking cookies-- I could be wrong, it's not clear. But it says, "Many other programs use Internet Explorer as a default browser, or use the Internet Explorer engine to display their interface or content. So even if your browser is not listed below (e.g. Opera), SpywareBlaster will protect you in many other cases."

Cons: I spent far too much time on this It should have most of this info in its Description What it does , How it does it , What it does it with AND the update

Other Thoughts:
New in this version:
-Added Pale Moon browser support.
-Improved support for the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox.
-Improved support for certain non-standard user account configurations.
-Improved installer experience on Windows Vista/7.
-Fixed rare updating issues.
-Numerous other bug fixes, optimizations, and tweaks.

Also, Flock browser support was removed in this release. The Flock browser is no longer actively maintained or supported by its makers.
