I regulary get messages telling me "System settings protector" has a problem and has to close, and Windows sends me to the Spybot site. I can't seem to fix this, and I like running Teatimer. Does it conflict with something else that is typically run? I never used to have the problem, but I started getting it at some point. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks. I have Spywareblaster, and I used to use Spyware Guard but it wasn't updated, so I thought it was no longer useful. I'll try this.

quoting: Stereo_Type link=board=34;threadid=13138;start=15#msg112632 date=1072107513]My question is, how come other spyware detection tools, like Spywareblaster and many more, update frequently, but SpywareGuard hardly ever updates?
The reason for less frequent updates with SpywareGuard is that it doesn't need to update as frequently. Much of its detection abilities are heuristics in nature. They work for many of the newer versions of spyware installers even without adding "signatures" for them. An update is made when there are new items coming out that are not detected that way.
SpywareBlaster's protections are all specific - target for target with no heuristics. It must be updated to stay on top of any new spyware items.
