Default Spyblaster help - How does it work?

I have spyblaster, downloaded all the updates and made all objects protected

but then what? How does it work? Does it have to be running to block spyware or something?

I trust it's a good program but it just doesn't seem to be doing anything

thanks for any help guys

Maybe it just makes some changes to the browser etc.
After I installed it (maybe 3 months ago) I have found only 1 spyware application on my computer, which seems very little to me. So I'm pretty sure that it's working fine.

I've never left it open. I'm guessing it just makes some minor changes to ur browser. (like blocking it from connecting to spyware stuff).
Just let it be there (no need to keep the window open) for a few weeks and see if it has reduced the amount of spyware u get.

well it does prevent spyware from coming to ur pc.
I'm not sure how but as I said "I'm guessing it just makes some minor changes to ur browser."
