Default Computer people...SpywareBlaster.

Ok, so I usually scan my computer for viruses, adware, etc. but lately I haven't had time due to work. I tried to open SpywareBlaster and nothing happens for about 15 seconds, then a little window opens that says "Invalid Picture" and that'* it. All I can do is click "OK" Anyone else have SpywareBlaster that knows what'* up?

Does the program have a splash image? (One that shows when it starts up).

If something with that was broken, it could cause some poorly written programs to crash..

I don't think it does Jason. I get "Invalid Picture" for a few other programs too.

Try SpywareDoctor (www.pctools.com). If you like the trial version, talk to me....

Pete, I found this link to SpyWareBlaster support forums. Maybe you can find an answer there.
