Spyware Blaster - worth reinstalling?

  Joe G 22:01 23 Jan 2018

I had SB installed on my previous SSD on my PC and still have it on my laptop. Is it worth reinstalling on the new SSD I have just installed on the PC and keeping on the laptop.

I run Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (both free versions) regularly and have Windows Defender on both PC and laptop. Both are Win 10

Yes SpywareBlaster is a Blocker and stops you going or being redirected to many bad sites

Thanks I'll reinstall it on the PC then. Thought it might be redundant by now but good to see it is still worth having

You must remember to update it regularly if using the free version as the automatic update is only available in the paid for version.

Thanks - yes I check at least once a week - just about to reinstall on my PC now!

I haven't tended to use the snapshot option previously - just run it. Is this something worth keeping up with?

I've never used it myself as I use Macrium Reflect to image my system drive completely if there are any problems.

Thanks - yes I thought a full backup would be more appropriate
