"This is a reassuring first line of defence."

September 08, 2010  |  By Peter Lisheen

 |  Version: SpywareBlaster 3.5.1

Pros

It sets up defences to prevent infections rather than removing the problems afterwards, and works without subsequent user involvement.

Cons

I'm not one of those who can claim never to have found another infection by scanning since installation with other products.

Summary

I doesn't seem to me to be perfect, but is no trouble and reassuring.

"Very happy"

March 01, 2008  |  By caiwooblue

 |  Version: SpywareBlaster 3.5.1

Pros

Been running this for over two years and I have no spyware issues.

Just remember it doesn't scan, it just BLOCKS!

Cons

I wish you didn't have to pay for auto-update, but I can understand the company's need for it.

"Don't leave home without it."

February 26, 2008

 |  Version: SpywareBlaster 3.5.1

Pros

No. Really. It is clean and simple. Not a cleaner. It is proactive protection. If something does get in you gotta use another tool to get rid of it, but this program prevents a lot of stuff from getting in.

Cons

None. What is to dislike. It does exactly what it says it does. I love it.

"works great! RECOMMENDED!"

February 14, 2008  |  By damagingwind

 |  Version: SpywareBlaster 3.5.1

Pros

Haven't had any issues at all with this. After installing this, the number of spy ware found has been minimal, if not nonexistent. Remember to update and make sure you still scan with another spyware program, like spybot S&D

Cons

the manual update (have to pay to automatically do it)

"Simple."

February 08, 2008  |  By shockwavesn1per

 |  Version: SpywareBlaster 3.5.1

Pros

SpywareBlaster's "immunizer" is similar to Spybot SD's Immunizers. It prevents spyware from being installed, or actually the sites that lead to spyware and malware. I appreciated this software's system "snapshot", something just like system restore but on a diet version. The updates in small, simple files is also great.

Cons

I would like a daily interval of updates, well at least one a week, since SpywareBlaster takes an awfully dreaddul 3-4 weeks to update once. I would also suggest upgrading V.3.5.1.

"the first thing a computer must have before going on the internet"

February 03, 2008  |  By sw_tester

 |  Version: SpywareBlaster 3.5.1

Pros

concept is good.blocks spyware.

custom blocking feature is unique! and helpful.

Cons

even though it said it blocked 2o7.net this cookie was still on my system.

a spyware may have different registry keys but same name. but in custom blocking feature you must give different names. i hope spywareblaster will correct this minor problem.

also how to send the infected files in custom blocking section to spywareblaster website for testing?

"Prevents Spyware entering the system."

January 29, 2008  |  By edred.uk

Pros

Thers nothing for you to do except check on available updates

Cons

Although it lists the spyware it claims to block, are we sure that it always works?
