Hello
I just downloaded, installed and updated Spywareblaster 4.2. It lists 709 items as unprotected in IE and 21 in the restricted sites.
The only thing that occurred during the download was the McAfee asked for permission to allow Spywareblaster access.
Which I did. I am curious why it would leave some items unchecked.
Should I click enable all protection or just assume it knows what it is doing and leave the unchecked items alone.
If I do click enable all protection what possible heinous things could occur??
Thanks in advance for any advice.
Best Regards
Nawtheasta

I would just enable them all, enabling all of those won't do anything heinous to your system. The only thing I do not enable in that program is flash in the Tools section, as it messes up some websites.

Whenever new updates for Spywareblaster are downloaded, you always have to, enable them.
Some people may choose to enable certain items, and not others, so they would go through the updates enabling only the ones they want, and not the others.
I prefer to enable, all.
