Re: Spyware

though I'm looking forward to being able to ask a Jaws-related question 
that's on topic about the Spyware Blaster scripts available on the JFW Lite 
site, I have a problem with the Spyware Blaster download.  I went to one of 
the sites that offers it, major geeks, I think, and followed the links to 
initiate the download.  I got a message that the download would begin 
automatically in a few seconds... and then the page seemed to clear itself 
of that message and leave no trace of my attempt to get the file.

I looked in the folder to which my downloads are usually directed, when I 
have the opportunity  to direct them, and there's nothing in there that 
looks like it has to do with spyware blaster.  And if it's installed and 
residing somewhere else on my system, I don't know where to look for it.

this is mysterious.  Anyone have any experience with this?

Spyware blaster, and spyware guard work together to help block spywared.
Both programs are free, and you can go to www.jfwlite.com  to get these
programs. Very important. You have to keep your spywawre blaster updated in
order for spyware blaster to work well.
