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

Gee, I really didn't know that! 5 stars by da49gator-email40 Dec 03, 2014
I'm a SpywareBlaster user for over 10 years. I haven't kept up with its improvements over the years. When I first encountered it, its main claim to fame was that it was a blacklist of malicious Web sites. It filled the "hosts" file with undesirable URLs and assigned them invalid IP addresses, thereby blocking them from being accessed by any browser. What I've read recently tells me that I was unaware of other, more sophisticated, techniques. Well done, guys. (In my world, "guys" includes "gals"; e.g, "chairm'n", as we pronounce it, includes "chairw'mn" too.) showShow review details
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
