Can someone please explain how best to use spywareblaster? I installed it on my computer and i've had trouble running certain programs. The only way I can get the programs to work is if i disable everything in spyblaster. Im clueless as to what Im disabling and how to manage this. Overall, I have no idea what I'm looking at when I pull up the the program and I'd love to know what is going on.

Also, where can I learn more about the registry/virus cleaning? right now I know about using all the virus protection in safemode but I'm curious about taking it a step further....

Ok. So I guess my question is: with all those sites listed under Active X customize block list how would I know which I would need to uncheck in order to run a program on purpose?

For example. I needed to run the Norton Removal Tool and in order to run it I needed to allow Active X to run. I enabled ALL active X listed in the blocked window, b/c I had no idea which to choose to allow. I imagine it would be safer to allow only 1 instead of the whole onslaught.

How would I'd know this?

SpywareBlaster restricts the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer by adding a list of sites and domains associated with known spyware, advertisers and marketers to Internet Explorer's Restricted Sites Zone. You do NOT want to uncheck any of them.
