    Re: SpywareBlaster - new version

    Well, spotted, Tony! I note the ...

    Upgrade Instructions

    It is recommended that you uninstall your current version of SpywareBlaster before installing the new version. To do this:
    1.) Open SpywareBlaster and press the "Disable All Protection" link under "Quick Tasks".
    2.) Close SpywareBlaster.
    3.) Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the entry named "SpywareBlaster v3.1"
    4.) Download the latest SpywareBlaster installer from the link above and run it.
    5.) Enjoy the new version of SpywareBlaster!

    Re: SpywareBlaster - new version

    Being the tardy individual that I am I just got around to downloading and installing the 3.2 version. I followed the un-install instructions (which don't mention any necessary reboot that I can see). Version 3.2 seems to be successfully installed but does not recognize that I have MOZILLA running on this machine. Any clues?

    BTW, the 3.1 version did know about Mozilla, in fact I only recently upgraded Moz to version 1.7.1 and just prior to installing 3.2 this morning, the 3.1 version showed Moz protection to be enabled.

    Edited: Forgot to say that the top part of the attachment is from 3.1 showing that it did recognize Moz. Bottom part from 3.2 with Moz "cookies" inaccessible.

    Al

    As far as I can tell you can enable the protection for Mozilla 1.7.1, even if SpywareBlaster 3.2 didn't detect it.

    You might want to have a search in the SpywareBlaster Support Forum for problems associated with your weird and unusual browser <img src=/S/flee.gif border=0 alt=flee width=25 height=25> !!

    Re: SpywareBlaster - new version

    Yeah, thanks John. I've read and searched their forums with tons of mention about Firefox (.8 vs. .9) and even a small bit about Netscape. I can't see anything (so far) specifically about Mozilla, but I'm gonna keep on looking. What makes you say that you think I CAN enable protection - the small button in my attachment is not clickable and even on the main page, when I click on "Enable all protection" the only thing it says about Mozilla is that it didn't detect a profile, which I obviously have 'cause here I am. I think maybe I'll re-install Mozilla over-the-top and see if that helps. Thanks for looking.

    Edited to add: Tried a re-install of Moz 1.7.1 over-the-top and included a restart afterward. No dice. I guess I may have to give up on SpywareBlaster.

    Al

    I saw the tick-box and assumed you could click at it! Never assume anything...

    I'd keep SpywareBlaster installed, because it handles protection for lots of things other than browsers!

    Re: SpywareBlaster - new version

    Hi Al,

    I also have V3.2 loaded and it is showing that Firefox is recognized. I don't have the extra display of text like you show, at the bottom of the dialog box. I haven't the faintest idea why mine seemed to work! I just deleted the old and reloaded the new so don't give up on it - it should work!! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: SpywareBlaster - new version

    <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15> I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that I also have a copy of Netscape loaded. I noted that it refers to Netscape yet the front page shows protection for Moz. So now I don't know................. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>
