no I meant what Mikey said, is it true? the following:

Just make sure to run every cleaner you have before installing spywareblaster cause it also prevents cleaning some of the badies if you have them already before installing.It's a great program though i use it myself also and am very pleased with it.Also run an online scanner like this one: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/


Have fun

Hi darth.mikey,

Is it true what you tell here of this Dark Vader side of SpywareBlaster, that it keeps the baddies on your comp.
Where is this information, where can we check this.
So this means when you want to clean a trojan or a backdoor, you have to take SpywareBlaster out before the cleaning process can be successful. Is this the implication of what you telling us.
Wow, and if this is a fact, why so little security people know this. This is the first time I have heard this info.

Polonus well sorry if you don't get my post BTW it's Darth Vader not Dark Vader.It's true that if you already have spyware on your comp and then install spywareblaster you won't be able to remove the spyware(just uninstall spywareblaster remove the spyware and reinstall in this case) don't ask me why but that's how it is(i know from personal experiance).There is it clear enough now for you?Ok if you don't believe me then read here OK?  http://www.javacoolsoftware.info/kb/idx/7/075/article/

P.S:I  think my first post was clear enough though sorry for the misunderstanding ;)

If you use p2p  don't go with ZA  ;)
I use MSN  AIM Yahoo ICQ and ZA  without any problems.
With ZA, you don't have to learn or make rules.

Bob i was talking about P2P programs (Kazaa,Shareaza,eMule,Bittorrent....) ZA generates so many false intrusions(for me it was 500 at least a day  :-\ ) and slows down your p2p download(at least version 5 did i don't know about version 6).

Hello Darth.Mikey,

Well I always call Darth Vader Darth Vader from now on (vader is the Dutch word for your English father). Thanks again for the info, not that my machine was not clean, but I could warn others.
We must share every bit of info we got, because we need this bad enough against the malcreants There is a lot of EPO backdoored stuff around added to normal downloads at the moment, the general software firewall does not alarm, as does other security software, all in the style of gen.AgroBot, gen.AimBot. Be on the look-out in what you download and from where. Have any tips in this field?

Sorry my friend but the only tip i can give you is to be really carefull what you download backup regulary and have as little sensitive stuff on your HDD as possible(i burn everything on dvd's)  ;) You can never be truly safe on the net if some crazy russian hacker(they are poor people with no money) decides to break into your comp trust me he will.And stay away from porn and warez sites and you will be just fine.

I clicked your link, Darth Vader, and by the way I read it, doesn't it mean that spyware already on your computer will remain on your computer when you install it. So... I just got a feeling they mean that Spyware Blaster will only prevent the spyware but not remove it. But this piece of info you told us shocks me I uninstalled it and now I'm scanning.

Hey guys, I uninstalled avast! antivirus but it still annoys me that one of my screensavers name is avast! antivirus and I can't remove it for some reason I even used the uninstaller. So can anyone give me any tips on this one?

Cheers,

tim ::)
