Editors' Review

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and that's especially true when it comes to spyware; wouldn't you rather protect your system than spend hours trying to rid it of malicious visitors? SpywareBlaster is a simple program that provides protection from ActiveX-based software and unwanted cookies for both Firefox and Internet Explorer users.

SpywareBlaster has a simple interface that will be easy for even novices to navigate. The main screen shows the protection status for Internet Explorer, restricted Web sites, and Firefox. By default, protection is disabled for each of these, but you can easily enable ActiveX Protection and Cookie Protection for Internet Explorer, and Cookie Protection for Firefox. The restricted sites option lets you block the actions of known malware sites in Internet Explorer. If there are cookies or sites that you know to be harmless and need access to, an exception list lets you exclude these from being blocked. SpywareBlaster also has a System Snapshot tool that will create a record of your system settings, allowing you to easily restore them if they're altered by spyware. In addition to these tools, SpywareBlaster comes with options that let you adjust various browser settings and block Flash content and downloads entirely if desired. Overall, we found SpywareBlaster to be an easy-to-use tool that provides important protection for people who use Firefox and Internet Explorer.

SpywareBlaster installs and uninstalls without issues.
