I am using Spyware Blaster to try to prevent infection. It has an enable protection for all items setting. When I set it up, protection was enabled for all items. However, today 12 internet explorer items were not protected. When I clicked on enable protection for those items, I received a warning message from Spy Sweeper-- another security program I am using. The message stated that SpywareBlaster.exe was trying to change my internet security settings through the 1090-dialers.com site, and harshly warned me to block it. I googled 1090-dialers.com, but decided against visiting the site in the event that it is not safe. Am I blocking something harmful, or am I preventing SpywareBlaster from protecting my computer by heeding the Spy Sweeper warning? What is the 1090-dialers.com site?

Webroot SpySweeper may prevent SpywareBlaster from enabling Restricted Sites protection. This is a known issue. See the discussion here.

The following work-around should allow you to enable protection in SpywareBlaster:
1. Disable the SpySweeper "IE Security Shield".
2. Open SpywareBlaster and enable all protection.
3. Re-enable the SpySweeper "IE Security Shield".

If you find the workaround is too much trouble every time you update SpywareBlaster, you can just disable (uncheck) SpySweepers IE Security Shield while adding Restricted sites. To do this see Post #5.
