    "Secure Your Browser and pc"

    July 23, 2012  |   By MusicScoreOst4Life

    Version: SpywareBlaster 4.6

    Pros

    + Mozilla Firefox support
    + Prevents spyware and malware
    + System Snapshot (Hosts Safe)
    + Every week new updates and they get installed real quick.
    + Great custom/manual options if needed.
    + Does not have to run in the background like most spyware prevent program do with quick tray icons.
    Just close program after updating and you're pc will still be protected at all time.

    Cons

    Doesn't destroy the spyware that have already breached the walls.

    No Dutch language

    Summary

    One of the smartest moves you can make for your computer is to protect it by blocking spyware.
    These threats lie at every corner when you are online, even when you're simply clicking a link.

    SpywareBlaster is a very effective tool that blocks out any spyware which attempts to infiltrate into your computer, but doesn't destroy the ones that have already breached the walls (although its name might suggest differently).

    System Snapshot is an important function of SpywareBlaster that allows you to create and restore backups of browser and system settings you consider to be important.

    Even an anti-virus program plus add-ons like WOT and Adblock Lite for firefox is nog enough protection to keep spyware out of the system.
    Ofcourse you can use programs like hitman pro and ccleaner for cleaning up cookies.
    But you do not want to manually clean the system everytime after internet browsing right? so in that case you need spywareblaster.

    It's a worry free program.

    "Works Great would buy it if it also supported Opera"

    July 21, 2012  |   By musicman4you

    Version: SpywareBlaster 4.6

    Pros

    Been using it for about 3 years.I use my Outlook Express mail that uses IE and SpyWareBlaster Blocks you from visiting infected websites and other things.Great protection for IE and it protects FF also.

    Cons

    Works Great.Just wish they would add Opera like they did Firefox.SpybotSearch&Destroy does the same thing but has some Opera protection with the immunize feature.

    Summary

    Great program for IE and FireFox.We need all the protection we can get.Keeps a lot of bad stuff blocked from getting on your PC by blocking bad Websites.

    "Useful program. Easy to use."

    July 19, 2012  |   By PCGeek2Be

    Version: SpywareBlaster 4.6

    Pros

    Install it. Set it. Update manually once a week then forget it.

    Cons

    New versions can't be just installed as an update.
    User has to shut down prior version, then uninstall it in order to install the newer version. It only takes a few minutes, but it is an annoying inconvience.

    Summary

    I 've had this program on my pc's for years without issues.

    "Excellent software."

    July 18, 2012  |   By TheAl12345

    Version: SpywareBlaster 4.6

    Pros

    Though I have only joined spyware blaster team only maybe a year ago because I am with malware hunters, this program is great. There really isn't anything negative to report since it's not a program that needs to be running. You just set it and forget it. It adds great levels of protect for IE, Firefox, and soon Chrome.

    Cons

    Nothing really, though, I do suggest them to add IP, Domain, and global host blocking like spybot has.

    Summary

    Great software that doesn't need to be running. There isn't anything negative to report except for the suggestion I made which isn't really negative.

    "Using it for many years now, simply works!"

    July 12, 2012  |   By TusharG

    Version: SpywareBlaster 4.6

    Pros

    Blocks you from visiting infected websites. The effect of this program is not directly visible however it works at system level.

    Cons

    1. Wish it would support more browsers like Opera, Safari, Chrome.
    2. The name is definately confusing for new users. Name should have been spywarepreventor.

    Summary

    I'll recommend this software to everyone who are on Microsoft windows. No matter what antivirus you are using this is a must for you.

    May 21, 2012  |   By PeteSeaford

    Version: SpywareBlaster 4.6

    Pros

    Once installed you can leave it to do it's work. It does not clash with existing spyware in your anti-virus program. Stops diallers and prevents cookies from untrusted sites installing.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind

    Summary

    Very good program to compliment existing security software.

    Pros

    Easy to use & update when I remember

    Cons

    I am never sure if it is running and if it is running, is it an application, a process or what. I can never find any evidence it is there ... so is it actually a good spoof !
