Using SpyWare Blaster


For the best protection, update and run SpyBot Search & Destroy and SpywareBlaster regularly.

Spyware is everywhere. And there's a very good chance that unless you take certain precautions and regularly scan and immunize your computer you are a victim of spyware. For a wealth of information about spyware, click here.

SpywareBlaster is a
spyware blocking utility. It's sole purpose is to prevent spyware from being installed on your computer. SpywareBlaster is most effective when used in conjunction with a spyware removal and immunization tool such as Spybot Search & Destroy. Prior to updating/running SpywareBlaster, be sure you have run SpyBot Search & Destroy and immunized your PC.

Locate the SpywareBlaster icon on your Windows Desktop and double click on it to launch the application...
(if you do not have SpywareBlaster installed on your computer, you may contact the Helpdesk or, if you are comfortable installing the software yourself, click here to begin downloading the software).



Updating the Software

Before running SpywareBlaster be sure you have the latest software updates.

1. Click on the Update field on the left side of the SpywareBlaster window.

2. Click on the "Check for Updates" button.

If there are updates available, they will be automatically downloaded to your computer. Once finished, proceed to the next step.








Enable Blocking

After you have installed any updates to the software you are ready to begin blocking spyware.

1. Click on the "Protection" item on the left side of the SpywareBlaster window.

2. Click on the "Enable All Protection" link under the "Quick Tasks" section near the bottom of the window. A progress bar will be displayed as the task is carried out.

That's all there is to it! You can now close the SpywareBlaster window and your computer is now being actively protected against the spyware currently listed in SpywareBlaster's database.
For the best protection, update and run SpyBot Search & Destroy and SpywareBlaster regularly.
