Operating Systems:

SpywareBlaster supports Windows 98, ME, NT 4, 2000, XP, Vista and later.

SpywareBlaster only works on Windows PCs. There is no Mac-compatible version (yet).
Mac users shouldn't worry, though - spyware isn't nearly as big an issue on Macs as it is on Windows.

Other Security Software:

SpywareBlaster works with most reputable security software (e.g. antivirus programs, firewalls, etc). If you're wondering if SpywareBlaster works with the combination of other security/privacy software on your machine - the answer is almost certainly yes.

Any known issues or quirks are posted in the Official Javacool Software Forums (hosted by the Wilders Security Organization).


SpywareBlaster supports the following browsers:

  • Internet Explorer
    and any browsers that use the Internet Explorer engine, including:
  • The built-in AOL web browser
  • Avant Browser
  • Slim Browser
  • Maxthon (formerly MyIE2)
  • Crazy Browser
  • GreenBrowser
  • Mozilla Firefox

  • Netscape

  • Seamonkey (formerly the Mozilla Browser Suite)

  • Flock

SpywareBlaster does not offer protection for Opera at this time. Since Opera does not support Active-X, malware isn't as big an issue with the Opera browser.

Many other programs use Internet Explorer as a default browser, or use the Internet Explorer engine to display their interface or content. So even if your browser is not listed above (e.g. Opera), SpywareBlaster will protect you in many other cases.

Note: No guarantee is made that the list of browsers using the Internet Explorer engine is up-to-date. Other browsers that are not listed may make use of the Internet Explorer engine.

Both SpywareBlaster's Internet Explorer and Restricted Sites protection should apply to any browsers that use the Internet Explorer engine.
