Is this a legit program?And is it any good?

Free version offers a good anti Ad/Malware scanner and cleaner, but most of the realtime protective features from the Pro version have been disabled. So while it's a handy backup, it's not first line protection.
It's getting a lot of postings in other forums asking the same question and the overall feeling is that it's a very competant bit of kit. As long as you are aware of the reduced feature set provided in the free version and aren't bothered by this.

Alot of rogue anti-virus/spyware programs around!!

There certainly is; it's big business.

Just Google for Spywareblaster, click on the sponsored link that comes out on top and you'll find one of the fakes.
The genuine product is from Javacool Software and is second in the results.

I'm a firm believer in having protection against spyware but there is a case for taking it too far. I have AVG antivirus, Zone Alarm firewall and 2 antispyware programs AdAware and Counterspy. You can end up loading up so much antispyware that you can end up spending all your time scanning.
I think it was PCA magazine last year that recommended 1 antivirus program, 1 firewall and 2 spyware programs, mainly because none of the antispyware programs removed everything so they suggested using 2 so hopefully between them both they would get everything.

One thing I don't really like is Spyware Blaster it doesnt do nothing as such
