SpywareBlaster 3.0 - What New Features ?

  QQAA 19:51 01 Apr 2004

few days ago, when i tried to update the definition file for the said free spyware-prevention tool, a pop-up message box advised that a new ver 3.0 is available for which a separate download and installation is needed.

then, today while searching for relevant threads in this forum, i stumbled across a lengthy 4-page thread that offered tons of amusement to the audience.

anyway, does anyone knows what are the new features of SypwareBlaster 3.0 against the ver 2.6.1 that i am currently using?

it seems i would not be able to further update my definition file if i do not take the version-upgrade path. unfortunately, no details are provided in the developer's website regarding its differences from the old version.

i would try to ensure that no pain killers would be required for attending to my query of a simple nature.

Basically it has a new interface and is easier to use. From the Help file:

SpywareBlaster is the original anti-spyware protection solution!

Developed in 2002 to help users prevent spyware installs, SpywareBlaster pioneered the effective use of prevention techniques to reduce or greatly eliminate spyware-related problems, as well as problems related to other unwanted software such as dialers, browser hijackers, and adware.

Today's SpywareBlaster is greatly enhanced - protection is still the foremost purpose of the program, but it also provides unique utilities like the exclusive "System Snapshot", and various useful tools. The interface has been upgraded to provide easier access to all of the new options, including Restricted Sites Protection, and Mozilla/Firefox Protection.

Help keep your system safe and secure with SpywareBlaster. We hope you like it!

I have noticed that since upgrading to the latest version of Spywareblaster Adaware has not found anything when I have run it.

i will upgrade to v3.0 or else ended up with an increasingly out-dated definition file.

but i don't mind waiting one or two weeks, just in case a v3.01 or 3.1 appears with a few minor (if any) bug fixes.
