Can Spyware blaster definitions be periodically updated using a modem connection? I have downloaded the program for someone who only has a modem connection. Thanks.

✔ Best Answer
By modem connection do you mean dial-up? Sure it can be updated, but it may take a while depending on the size of the download. SpywareBlaster isn't really a great program though & MUST be updated manually. The auto-update feature only comes with the pay version, but it's not worth paying for. There are too many other freebies that are better.

From a recent review: "SpywareBlaster isn't designed to block viruses...it has no way to detect new and previously undetected threats. It can't remove installed spyware, either."

It certainly doesn't hurt to have it, but you still need real-time anti-virus/anti-malware protection.

It blocks bad websites and uses no resources. The updates are about every 2 weeks and not large. Well worth having in my opinion, as a bit of extra protection, but as riider says it is NOT an anti-virus in the normally accepted definition and should not be seen as such.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Any program can be updated or downloaded using a modem connection. The only hang up might be speed but if you update SWB at least once a month then it won't take long. The updates are small because they only put kill bits in the registry.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
