Spyware Blaster

  Rhuddlan 22:17 01 Mar 2004

When using this handy piece of software a list appears with about 200 entries and on the left hand side of the window, it says spyware and the last 20 entries says cookies, it gives me the option to tick each entrie to protect them, there are all in red text at first, but after ticking the items they turned into black text, just wonderning if it is safe to tick all of these entries without doing anything wrong, not too sure how to use this piece of software yet.

Tick everything, Spyware Blaster is very good at what it does. the entries ar red to show that they have not been excluded. When ticked they turn black to show that you are protected.

Yes, tick 'em all.

If something goes pear-shaped (v unlikely) you can reverse this).

It's fine to tick all the entries.

Just click Select All Button and don't forget to click Protect Against All Checked Items button.

Then you are protected from all the nasties.

You had better update spywareblaster if you only have 200 entries, at the last count todate there are 1195 exclusions.
