settings for spyware blaster
Posted 14 December 2007 - 11:46 AM
I have done the following
used ad-aware, spybot, cwshredder, ccleaner, McAfee avert stinger and have now downloaded spyware blaster and windows updates ( I already have the SP2 patch. They also recommended WinSock XP Fix, but when I went to the site they said this is only for IT professionals - should I use it? Is it necessary to use all these programs to clear the problems, does each one do something different?
The next step is to download super antispyware home edition and obtain a log and post it to a forum.
After that I have been recommended to use Hijack this log and post it to a forum.
I have full Norton Security installed but I still keep getting problems with trojans, spyware and malaware. Are there any better products I can use to protect my computer as I am reluctant to use credit cards as I do not know if anyone can access my information, Is there any way I can check this?
I know there are lots of questions, but I am really keen to learn how to protect my computer and I am very grateful for your help.

You misunderstand the purpose of SpywareBlaster. It does not inhibit the install of all ActiveX controls, just the malicious ones.
See here - http://www.javacools...areblaster.html
Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted software.
