Spywareguard is for use with Internet Explorer, not Mozilla.
As Mozilla products aren't succeptible to the same vulnerabilities as Internet Explorer, Spywareguard's protection isn't needed.

More information on Spywareguard can be found at the Wilders Security Forums in the SpywareBlaster & Other forum.

Wait... what?!?!? Spyware Guard is only for IE users? I thought it had a built-in real-time monitoring and protection system!

Spyware Guard is a real-time protection tool that monitors certain events and then acts to notify you that these events are taking place rather than prevent specific threats. SG will notify you of any event attempt to change the browser home page - it makes no judgment on whether the change is good or bad but leaves the decision up to you to allow or deny it.

SG scans exe and cab files [the two most popular file types for distributing spyware] using Signature-based scanning for known spyware and Heuristic/generic detection capabilities to catch new/mutated spyware. A malicious file is blocked before being opened or run and the full path to its executable is provided on the alert screen. Once a spyware file is detected and blocked from running, the options are provided to either continue or to delete the file.
