Spyware Blaster

I think you must have Spyware Blaster confused with some other program. I,and a lot of other people I know have used it for several months and it is a good program. It is also free. I have never been asked to buy it. Are you sure you aren't thinking of something else?.....Maggie

spywareblaster.com is ROGUE
by John.Wilkinson / March 26, 2006 9:57 AM PST

ALERT: The site and product you came across are ROGUE and NOT related to the real SpywareBlaster (from Javacool Software), a program we frequently recommend. Read on.

SpywareBlaster is a legitimate program from Javacool Software, and is in no way associated with the website and/or product you ran across. BulletProofSoftware, the site spywareblaster.com, and the product BPS Spyware and Adware Remover are on the Rogue AntiSpyware List for exploiting the name of SpywareBlaster, SpyBot S&D, and other products, reporting false positives, using high-pressure sales tactics, and installing adware. Thus, they should be avoided at all costs.

SpywareBlaster has an update option within the program...run that and it will download the latest definitions and notify you if a newer version of the program is available. I believe if one is found it will give you a link to the download site, but if not you can click here for the product's true webpage.

Hope this helps,
John


P.S. Please don't type in all caps, as it's considered shouting and thus rude.

Right On, John! I Wish People Would Learn to Check the .....

Rogue List before downloading programs of this type.
Javacools Programs have always be great to my knowledge and fully worthy of support & recognition.
Perhaps we need to make one more locked sticky item (like parasite suite) for this 1 Warning with link to Spywarewarrior.com site? Couldn't hurt! Happy

Rogue List
by DADSGETNDOWN / September 11, 2006 12:52 PM PDT

Hello, some are just unaware of such things, I wonder if maybe it would be good for the cnet webmaster, to put a link to the Rogue List on the downloads page ? or every download page ?. or maybe in the secuirty or antivirus or spyware section or something ?.Just a thought...something like have you heard of the rogue List ? did you check the Rogue List ? Be sure to check the Rogue List ?..I dunno something Happy

You're Right. Not A Bad Idea. Perhaps a Locked Sticky?

In reply to: Rogue List

I personally have mentioned & supplied link more than 50 times in this forum alone. Additionally it is the 1st item (top of page) in my posts linking to Scumware Utilities post (although the info in that post is getting inaccurate from "Long in the Tooth" syndrome.
Luckily many have learned to ask HERE before visiting or dwnld/installing something they heard of. Many ROGUES make their prod's name extremely close to the name of the REAL THING so people, who've not SEEN the name of the real one in print, will be misdirected to the ROGUE by SOUND alike's.
Oddly enough, the locked "Anti-Parasite Suite" normally stickied to front page has the real address for Javacools Spyware Blaster buried at about #30 down in the posted replies. Happy

Not alot of people come or go to or take time or even know about forums, we get told to go to downloads.com get the program, find or search there install or click links and adds and move on.. then what you know, Mom and Dads comp or ours, is infected, or whatever have you, so by the same token MANY have not even seen one of your 50 links Happy Oh, 1st item (top of the page) ? where, I'm blind I do not see it here.

Scumware Utilities. Good link to add to favorites (IE) or Bookmarks(Mozilla). I couldn't determine how many times I'd posted this link as separate from posts to Spywarewarriors only. Sorry I should have been more clear.
Info in the post is good but prices may be outdated, & some programs (particularly Free Sygate & Kerio Firewalls) may no longer be at indicated link. Sygate was bought up by Symantec to take it off the market. I can't recall, off hand, who reserected Kerio after it vanished.
On Basic Principle & as Rule of Thumb, I try to only download anything from the author's OWN site or from links embedded in his/her/their (Corp.) site. Much less likely to have been messed with. Happy
