By setting a « kill bit » for spyware ActiveX controls, SpywareBlaster can prevent the installation of any spyware ActiveX controls from a webpage. It does this while not interfering with « friendly » ActiveX controls - so your browser can work correctly and you can have peace of mind !
You won’t get any more annoying « Yes/No » boxes popped up, asking you to install a spyware ActiveX control (which can increasingly be found in pop-up ads !). In fact, Internet Explorer will never even download or run the spyware ActiveX control !
In addition, SpywareBlaster can prevent many of these spyware ActiveX controls from running, even if they are already installed on your system.*
The newest SpywareBlaster version can even block spyware/tracking cookies ! And SpywareBlaster does not need to be running in the background to provide this protection !
The SpywareBlaster database contains information on these known spyware Active-X controls. Make sure you run the Check For Updates feature frequently to get the latest database ! (And make sure you check the new items to protect your system against them !)
SpywareBlaster also provides the exclusive System Snapshot ! - Take a snapshot of your computer in its clean state, and use System Snapshot later to revert many changes made by spyware and browser hijackers !
SpywareBlaster System Snapshot works a lot like Microsoft’s System Restore for Windows ME/XP - however it exclusively targets items used by spyware and browser hijackers to embed themselves into your system - so you can get the results you want : a spyware-free system. It provides the following benefits :
- Only targets items used by spyware and browser hijackers to embed themselves into your system - so you can get the results that you want : a spyware-free system
- Detects changes and additions - and alerts of both on a restore operation
- Provides a list of changed/added items - so the user has full control over what will be restored
- Covers hundreds of items - including the most popular areas altered by browser hijackers and spyware, as well as many currently un-tapped areas
- And much much more !
