I just downloaded the latest version of spywareblaster and installed it but when I try to launch it I get error message "This computer has performed an illegal operation and will shut down". I had the older version and it worked fine but I uninstalled it before installing the new one. Any suggestions?

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Just wondering if you followed the steps here? From the Javacool site. --> It is recommended that you uninstall your current version of SpywareBlaster before installing the new version. To do this:
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 v3.4"
4.) Download the latest SpywareBlaster installer from here and run it.

If you didn't "Disable All Protection" prior to uninstalling it's very likely you have corrupted the new version. I would suggest that you uninstall the file you have then. use the link in item 4 above and reinstall. hth
