I just tried to update my SpywareBlaster 4.0 and was informed there is a new version - 4.1.

Does anyone know if this new version is OKAY to download and install at this time, or should we wait a while.
Or, do we have a choice?

Please advise and thank you.

You always have a choice to use it or not. If it comes from here, http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/ I would think it's fine. I'm going to download and install it right now, thanks for posting the update :thumbsup: . I usually check for updates every few weeks and haven't checked for for awhile.

It is recommended that you uninstall your current version of SpywareBlaster before installing the new version.
1. Open SpywareBlaster and press the "Disable All Protection" link under "Quick Tasks".
2. Close SpywareBlaster.
3. Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the entry named "SpywareBlaster 4.0"
4. Install the latest version of SpywareBlaster.

Note: If you use Spybot, SpywareBlaster and IE-SPYAD together, there is some overlap of protection. Each one offers a different list but they are not completely identical. Thus, if you undo or disable the protection in one product, it may remove some of the protection installed by the other. You should re-immunize or re-enable the protection in the other products as appropriate.

I was just wondering if there is a list of things that were fixed/improved/added etc to the v4.1?

I didn't see anything different and I am assuming that it was bug fixes :thumbsup:
