Spywareblaster Update Available for those that use it.

Just wondered in this day and age whether we still need to use a program like this. I would imagine most up to date Anti-Virus and Anti- Malware programs would automatically find those sort of problems. What do you think.

I think it is worth keeping. It prevents nasties from infecting rather than removing after infection.

VoG™. It is just that I have been using it for so long now I was sort of wondering if there were anything else that was even better nowadays. I was thinking along the lines of maybe time to remove it but better being safe than sorry I suppose.

I think Spywareblaster is still an excellent program. Before I installed it my firewall used to stop many dozens of suspicious incursions every day. But since using Spywareblaster that number dropped to virtually zero.

Many thanks sunnystaines. Hope you got your mobile broadband sorted. If going to Scotland get yourself an o2 dongle. Happy travels.
