Why don't you use Javacool's Spyware Guard as well as their Spyware Blaster?

spywareguard, I think, is anti-virus program. It is also free. I do not need it since I have another anti-virus detection program (VirusScan).

Thanks for the info.

Paul

Their web site calls it anti spyware, that is designed to run in addition to anti virus software. I have never had any trouble with it conflicting with my anti virus program.

It uses a different method of stopping spyware than spyware blaster does. It seems to be a second line of defense against spyware.
