Does SpywareBlaster® remove spyware?

SpywareBlaster is a prevention program, unlike most anti-spyware programs which utilize a "removal" approach after your system is already infected. SpywareBlaster effectively prevents ActiveX-based spyware, dialers, browser-hijackers and other malware or potentially unwanted programs from ever installing on your system in the first place.

Many users employ a multi-layered "prevent and remove" strategy by using anti-spyware removal utilities in combination with SpywareBlaster's protection. We recommend the free and trusted Spybot Search & Destroy (www.safer-networking.org) or Ad-Aware (www.lavasoft.de - the link to the free version is at the top right).

When you install SpywareBlaster, any spyware already present on your computer remains on your computer, although SpywareBlaster will disable it if possible. To remove any spyware/malware remnants, we recommend running Spybot S & D or Ad-Aware. Thereafter, there should be few (if any) items needing removal each time you run Spybot or Ad-Aware, and most (if not all) of the items detected will only be tracking cookies.
