    Does Spyware Blaster still offer anything?


    Searched this forum (AV, F, & SS) for Spyware Blaster, and found nothing but fairly old results. I've used this freeware (with occasional donations) for more years than I can remember, but lately I've seen a drop-off in updates of both the database and the utility itself. I'm just wondering whether anyone here has an opinion on whether Spyware Blaster is of any value as a supplement to other very substantial Anti-Pest Protection (in my case, Defender real-time and Malwarebytes Premium real-time, but as a supplement to whatever YOU depend on for APP). -- Dan 10 Pro 21H1

    Anti virus, Trojan's and Spyware.

    Hmmm, I use AVG Email Server Antivirus, Zonealarm Pro, and many many spyware programs... The best one being BPS Anti-Spyware. Ad-aware SE is just garbage now, but if you want spyware protection with out nothing running i suggest using Spyware Blaster. Heres a list of great programs that i use and i think are some are the best. Pest Patrol, Spyware Doctor, Spybot, Bazooka, Spyware Blaster, and BPS Anti-Spyware. Those are really great anti-spyware programs. Oh and the new Zonealarm Pro I dont like at all becuase it alerts you about everything even if you turn alerts off so i use version 6.0.667.000 which is one of the best newer ones.

    Does Spyware Blaster still offer anything?

    Sound Blaster Z does not work after lastest windows Update

    Hi Robert,

    I appreciate the troubleshooting steps you have tried to resolve the issue.

    Please answer these questions to assist you better.

    • Do you get any error message?
    • Which is the latest build installed in your computer?
    • What troubleshooting steps are you referring to?
    • What is the make and model of your computer?
    • Are you able to hear sound from internal Speakers?

    I suggest you toRun the Hardware and Devices Troubleshooter
    and check the status.

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with hardware and devices. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with the Bluetooth adapter. Refer these steps:


    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Control panel.


    • Change the view by option on the top right to
      Large icons.

    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the
      view all option on the left panel.

    • Run the Hardware and devices troubleshooter.

    • Restart your computer and check if the issue is resolved.

    Do let us know if Sound Blaster Z works as it should. Thank you.
