Removal of Spyware

  Procrastinus 15:52 21 Aug 2005

I run Spyware Blaster 3.4 with Windows 98 and have collected a good crop of ActiveX/cookies in IE and Firefox plus CoolWebSearch, dialers, etc in the restricted site. How can one delete any or all of these safely? I have tried to 'unprotect' cookies but they do not appear in Cookie Monster for deletion; similarily with CoolWebSearch and CWShredder. I appreciate that they are all blocked by Spyware Blaster but nevertheless I would like to remove them. Advice and help appreciated!

If you're running SpywareBlaster you shouldn't have any. Are you sure you've enabled protection correctly?
However this is after the fact. To remove spyware use Adaware click here Spybot S+D click here A squared click here

I do run Adaware, Spybot and a-squared but Spyware Blaster still has the same 'friends' in it. Are you suggesting removing all SpywareBlaster protection and then running the three above?

Spyware Blaster just blocks these things you probably do not have them installed on your PC.

Just in the List that tells SB what to block .
