Hi! I've never had Spyware Guard....I've had Spybot and Spyware Blaster....as per old timer's recommendation I tried to download it from Major Geek's. It got stuck at having 5 minutes and 28 seconds remaining and wouldn't complete. Do you think it could have something to do with my internet settings? Also, I went for the full download--there was one shorter....what's the dif?
Thanks for you kind attention.
Oh, I had my internet settings lined up with what is recommended on this site.
Thanks again.

Yeah, that worked! Thank you....I think it was just a case of my browser timing out. Anyway, this doesn't have a scan, right?

Thanks so much!

Your quite welcome, noonytunes.

No, you don't have to scan with SpywareGuard, it runs in the background like your AV, always working

SpywareGuard works sorta like your Antivirus, except for spyware.
If you download a program that contains spyware and try to run it, SpywareGuard will notify you that it contains spyware, and give you the option to delete the spyware files.

Example:
Say you download a free program, but you didn't know it comes bundled with Gator.
When you try to install the program, and it gets to Gator.exe, a box will pop up warning you that Gator is trying to install.
You can either OK it, or delete it.
Of course deleting it might "break" the program, but if it needs spyware to work properly, who needs it anyway. :thumbsup:

In case you haven't seen it yet, here's a tutorial on SpywareGuard:
