prevent installation of malware SpywareBlaster prevents the installation of many so-called spyware, adware and malware programs by disabling the CLSIDs of popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage. This allows you to run Internet Explorer with Active-X enabled, but it will never download or even prompt you for any of the known ActiveX controls. All other Active-X controls or plug-ins will work just fine. The SpywareBlaster database contains information on these known spyware Active-X controls and can be updated with the click of a button. The application windows displays a list of all controls that it is able to detect (this is not a list of what was found on your computer). SpywareBlaster cannot detect if you have any of the known objects already installed on your system, but if you do, they will be disabled. The program also allows you to take a snapshot of your computer (certain settings) in its clean state and later revert many changes made by spyware and browser hijackers. Copyright Snapfiles.com

Extra protection, no resource issues 5 stars by rkd108428 Oct 22, 2012 (Read all my 17 reviews)
Provides peace of mind and an up-front layer of added security with no resource burden, a good adjunct to anti-malware scanner programs. showShow review details
Doesn't consume resources continually 5 stars by SeSorrow Apr 10, 2011 (Read all my 29 reviews)
This software does not run continually, it is a preventative rather than a scanner. Once you install it, you just have to run it occasionally to update it and enable the new updates. That's it. The perfect accessory to your active AV program. I install this on every computer I work on. showShow review details
Very easy to use 5 stars by roger2 Dec 27, 2009 (Read all my 3 reviews)
This is the 3rd spyware related freeware program I have tried (and reviewed) here at Snapfiles. Let me first say that SpywareBlaster is not exactly what I am looking for: I want a program to scan/report/fix and then go away, something I can run manually. I could not find a scan function in this program. It wants to run all the time and protect my (and your) browser proactively. If that is what you want then I would recommend this program based on my limited interaction with it. The user interface is extremely easy to comprehend and you are not overwhelmed by confusing options. Very clean interface. Inspires confidence, makes you feel likes its creators know what they are doing. showShow review details
