I continue to use SpywareGuard on my system since it uses little resources and offer some protection.
Gateway 400 Select PC; Windows 98SE; IE 6 SP2; 160MB Ram
I have both Spyware Guard and Spyware Blaster on my PC. I update Spyware Blaster regularly and Spyware Guard always tells me that I have the latest and greatest when checking for updates. I have Version 2.2 of the Guard and last definitions date was 1/22/04.
It is my understanding that Spyware Blaster works in the background whenever I go on line. For the Spyware Guard to work, must I have it up and showing in my systray for it to be working?
Since I have the Spyware Blaster, do I really need the Guard too?
Thank you -- Julea
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 pests.
