SpywareBlaster does not run it just sets some CLSID ActiveX settings that prevent known malware sites from doing their nasty stuff.

Spybot S&D runs just fine with it and it adds a few more CLSIDs if you do the Immunize.

This tool protects you by adding the URLs of risky sites to your browser's Restricted Zone, preventing malware from installing. The program doesn't scan or work in the background,
its known as passive protection-spyware blaster is not real time :)

Spywareblaster is passive. It uses no resources

I would choose ST over SB.

My preference is avast! for AS & AV with SUPERAntiSpyware Free for on-demand. 8)

Yes, avast! 4.8 is both a real-time antivirus & a real-time antispyware all in a single scanning engine. 8)

I don't have Vista so I don't know if it works with Vista, but it shouldn't hurt anything if you shut off VRDB.

Opera on my computers always use less RAM than FF or IE.

I suggest you check with Opera forums for help.

Are you using the newest version of Opera, 9.52?

BitDefender (on-demand av scanner) and SAS(more spyware based), A2 Free (more trojan based) are good protection, if more is needed ST with free RP 8)
Avast protects well!!!
