Spyware Guard question

  1. Em... I installed Spyware Guard but I can't open it... does it not have a user interface? Does it just run? And anyway, it's useless! I just scanned with a-squared and it picked up a bunch of spyware. I think I'll just uninstall Spyware Guard. What a strange program.

    Spyware guard works similar to Spyware blaster. It just helps to block spyware from entering your computer.

    I know Spyware blaster is a good programme. Since Spyware guard is from the same makers I assume it is also good, although I haven`t used it myself.

    Look HERE for further info.

    Regards Howard :)

    Well it didn't pick up any of the 25 items a-squared found...
    Thanks though, I thought I might have installed something faulty, or dangerous. I suppose a useless program is better than a malicious one. Maybe I'll get that spyware blaster you mentioned.
