Spyware Blaster 3.4

Recommended Posts

Spyware, adware, browser hijackers, and dialers are some of the fastest-growing threats on the Internet today.

By simply browsing to a web page, you could find your computer to be the brand-new host of one of these unwanted fiends!

 

The most important step you can take is to secure your system. And SpywareBlaster is the most powerful protection program available.

  • Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted software.
  • Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
  • Restrict the actions of potentially unwanted sites in Internet Explorer.

SpywareBlaster can help keep your system spyware-free and secure, without interfering with the "good side" of the web.

 

And unlike other programs, SpywareBlaster does not have to remain running in the background.

Thanks, Tarun. I have had this program for the last year, and I agree with your view that it is a program that everyone should have. However, I didn't know there was an updated 3.4 version available. I have just downloaded it, and I would like to thank you for bringing it to our attention.

New in this version:

-Improved updating (and fixes for updating issues some users experienced with previous versions)

-Improved support for users with large fonts / DPI settings

-Various cosmetic fixes/improvements

-Further optimizations to certain parts of the program

-And lots of other bug fixes and requested tweaks

 

This 3.4 release provides bug fixes and enhanced performance.

Various issues people have been having with previous releases should be fixed.

 

NEW UPDATING OPTIONS IN SPYWAREBLASTER 3.x

SpywareBlaster still offers the built-in Check for Updates feature. This feature is completely free and allows you to keep up-to-date by clicking on a button in the SpywareBlaster interface.

 

SpywareBlaster 3.4 now offers SpywareBlaster AutoUpdate - a brand-new updating solution. Just set it up, and AutoUpdate will check at every system boot for the latest updates and enable the newest protection (other options are available).

 

As much as we would like to provide auto-updating functionality for free, bandwidth costs are simply too great to make it feasible. AutoUpdate functionality is $9.95 (US) per year, which helps to cover the bandwidth costs. The Check for Updates function remains completely free, as does SpywareBlaster. You only need to pay if you wish to have the extra convenience of AutoUpdate.

 

------------

 

Upgrading Instructions from Older Versions:

 

It is recommended that you uninstall your current version of SpywareBlaster before installing the new version. To do this:

 

1.) Open SpywareBlaster and press the "Disable All Protection" link under "Quick Tasks".

2.) Close SpywareBlaster.

3.) Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the entry named "SpywareBlaster v3.3"

4.) Download the latest SpywareBlaster installer from the link above and run it.

5.) Enjoy the new version of SpywareBlaster!

Javacool also offers the Spyware Guard , free also. I installed this along with Spyware Blaster. It seemed to get rid of one little pesky popup (java) I have not been able to get rid of for quite awhile.....

I'd be afraid of that, too.

 

 

 

 

I just know that both of them have active scanners(spyware guard on spyware blaster) and I figured it would be like running two antiviruses and cause lots of problems.

I added MS Antispyware on top of SpywareBlaster and Spybot S&D, it hasn't created any problems. I downloaded SpywareBlaster 3.4, still no problems.
