Spywareblaster will not open so I uninstalled it and re-installed it, still will not open, requests UAC permission and given but still will not open then a message pops up saying failed to create IDespatch. Any ideas please?

Then after you have completed revo, right click the .exe and install as administrator.

Best of luck!

In my personal opinion, software like Norton & McAfee & now AVG is all bloated with extra gadgets. I think it maybe a good idea just to try and revo McAfee, give pc a quick clean with ccleaner, reboot and then try and install Spywareblaster. If Spywareblaster does install then re instate McAfee and see how that goes.

Avira is ok, but unless it's a paid for version, then it gives nil protection with email clients installed on your pc.

UAC can be turned off (If you wish): 1, Click start 2, Type in "start search" msconfig & press enter. 3, Once the "System Configuration" windows comes up, click on the Tools tab. 4, Scroll close to the bottom and look for "Disable UAC" 5, Once you have clicked Disable UAC, then click the "Launch" button. A cmd window will appear, just close that. Now reboot.

Best of luck !!

If the McAfee is the full suite then you will not require Spywareblaster as McAfee should be more up to date and adequate to deal with any spyware. In my opinion running Spywareblaster alongside McAfee spyware protection would tend to conflict with each other. If you are using the basic McAfee, then the previous post by TIMBO is the best advise. But if you are using the full McAfee suite then maybe you can run rugular scans with Norman>> http://www.norman.com/downloads/malware_cleaner/ Simply type in your email address in the red box and the download will appear for you.

If not already installed - download and install Revo Uninstaller to completely remove before reinstalling - link text

failed to create IDespatch is usually a problem with McAfee, are you running McAfee?
