Quietman, a few of us who run SpywareBlaster also run SpywareGuard -- SG should also be disabled 'cause it just might get in the way.

From what I read on BrightFort's website, SpywareGuard does not support anything above Vista - so I think it's unnecessary.

During my early Windows 7 days, it and SUPERAntispyware caught a program trying to change IE's home page.  That feature turned off since then.

I didn't think anyone was using SpywareGuard anymore.

If you're using another security program with Home Page Protection (i.e. SUPERAntispyware, Browser Protect, Browser Sentinel, Spy Sweeper, WinPatrol, Unchecky Beta, etc) that monitors attempted changes to your browser settings, then SpywareGuard will not be of much use. Even Brightfort (Javacool) has admitted that SpywareGuard is essentially redundant to many other security tools and they recommend folks consider SpywareBlaster instead for Windows Vista and above.

System Requirements
SpywareGuard works on Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP. Not tested on Vista.

SpywareGuard FAQ

Anyway, it is a limited real-time protection tool that monitors certain events and then acts to notify you that these events are taking place rather than prevent specific threats. SpywareGuard will notify you of any event attempt to change the browser Home Page - it makes no judgment on whether the change is good or bad but leaves the decision up to you to allow or deny it.

An update to instructions for disabling Emsisoft products' real time protection: Now you right click on the tray icon, then choose Pause protection -> Disable until computer restart.

What about the inbuilt Windows 10 and Edge security products? Any instruction necessary for disabling these?

I thought Edge was only a browser.  If so, I recommend, after making sure Edge works aok, simply leave it alone and not use it.  Maybe times and Windows have changed, however, I found out with my Windows 95/98 and Windows 7 -- leaving the IE in aok working condition, then simply ignoring and not using it worked much better than attempting to remove or disable said browser.  I got the impression that IE and Internet Options/Internet operations kind of, sort of, work together -- again, unless times and Windows have changed, and Windows 10, Edge are not like the days of old.
