Spyware BLASTER vs. Other Products
« on: February 28, 2006, 03:22:29 AM »
 :rose: does Spyware Blaster offer "REAL-TIME" protection like Spybot's TEA-TIMER?
can they be used together, and, if they're both REAL TIME and would conflict, is S Blaster a good choice between the two ?

thanx
 :thumbsup:

The most important step you can take is to secure your system. And SpywareBlaster is the most powerful protection program available.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted software.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially unwanted sites in Internet Explorer.
SpywareBlaster can help keep your system spyware-free and secure, without interfering with the "good side" of the web.
And unlike other programs, SpywareBlaster does not have to remain running in the background.

Q: does it work
A: It does seem to for a few hours at least.

As GR@PH;<'S noted, SpywareBlaster prevents the installation of ActiveX-based pests.  It will protect you from things in it's database by setting a "kill bit" that will block installation of their ActiveX objects.

Unlike real time monitors, SpywareBlaster does not need to remain open for its protection to be active.

So, it's not anything like TeaTimer ... rather, there is a similarity to SpyBot's immunize feature.

 :rose: so...
spyware blaster can run WITH Tea-Timer at the same time - no conflicts?
i'm having issues with T-Timer now; it NEVER shows me the ALLOW and DENY CHANGE option text on those buttons. i see the buttons, but what's written on them is BLANKED out.
is it advisable for me to run BOTH APS? ...
 :exorcize:  - i posted another thread about this... Since then, i've updated Adobe Reader, and i got ANOTHER TTscreen where i couldn't see which button said ALLOW change, and which said DENY.
 ** is this a SPYBOT BUG? (i'm running 1.4)
i'd thought ms defender had caused the problem...
 - is there a way for me to fix this, so i get to see what the buttons say?
THANX AGAIN!  :Win73:

You can run both without any conflicts, ;)

As to TeaTimer, I've never used it myself but you may find having a seperate registry 'watcher' easier. I personally, use RegProt:

Beta. Software undergoes beta testing shortly before it's released. Beta is Latin for 'still doesn't work.'

Like I said in your other thread, "Allow Change" is on the far left and "Deny Change" is on the far right.  You can also type "A" or "D" as a workaround ... there is a known GUI issue with the display of these buttons.
