I did a search here for spyware mainly because of all the pop ups etc. I found threads regarding spyware blaster updates. Can anyone explain what this download actually does, as it seems very popular with you guys
Thanks

This is scary. What prompted me to ask about spyware was an email from click here putting the frighteners on me by showing a messenger spam box. Not knowing them I deleted email and have sought advice here. But the messenger service box has just flashed up again. Whats going on??

In simple terms it updates (adds to) the list of known spyware that Spywareblaster protects against.

Thanks for help guys. Ive disabled messenger service, but do I install BOTH spyware blaster and spyware guard

Yes, both of them. They both protect you but in different ways.
