I would also recommend using SpywareBlaster
which is a program that restricts the actions of potentially dangerous sites
by adding a list of sites and domains associated with known spyware, advertisers and marketers to the browser's "Restricted Sites Zone". SpywareBlaster also prevents the installation of ActiveX
-based malware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted software amd blocks tracking cookies
. It can be used with Internet Explorer and any browsers that use the Internet Explorer engine such as AOL web browser, Avant Browser, Slim Browser and Maxthon (formerly MyIE2) and provides protection for Mozilla Firefox, Netscape, Seamonkey, and Flock. SpywareBlaster is not intrusive as it does not run in the background
. It only requires installation and then enabling of all protection. After that you only have to check periodically for database updates using the built-in "Check for Updates
" feature and then enable all protection again. For more information, see SpywareBlaster System Requirements & Supported Browsers
If you are not sure how to use SpywareBlaster, please refer to the How to use SpywareBlaster to protect your computer
tutorial. In addition to explaining how to use the tool, the tutorial covers other built-in tools and features.
