SpywareBlaster is a program that prevents spies, detecting at the time they are filtered and prevents the installation of ActiveX based spyware, adware, hijackers, dialers and other programs that can threaten the security and integrity of the system.
SpywareBlaster blocks so-called tracking cookies in both Internet Explorer and Firefox, whose purpose is to spy on the different sites by which it is navigated, in order to later display advertising related to the theme of those sites. It also blocks access to webs that can filter any of the commented elements.
It is important to emphasize that this program does not scan the system for spyware or adware, but prevents it. If we are looking to analyze possible infections we recommend Ad-aware as a complement. Both programs are free.
The program does not run in the background on a permanent basis, which helps to consume fewer resources, and does not affect the performance of the computer; But runs in conjunction with applications that require special care, as can be the case with web browsers.
SpywareBlaster 4.6 is the latest version, updated in February 2012. It improves some aspects related to the update and also has several corrections, which makes it more optimum than its previous version, in addition to obviously updating the virus definition. Works with Windows 7, Vista and XP.
