    My friend referred me to this program and I really don't see it helping me any. Anyway, is this a helpful program to have?

    P.S. I use Proximitron for popup blocking already, maybe it stops most ads anyway...

    Absolutely!

    By setting a "kill bit" for spyware ActiveX controls, SpywareBlaster can prevent the installation of any spyware ActiveX controls from a webpage. It does this while not interfering with "friendly" ActiveX controls - so your browser can work correctly and you can have peace of mind!

    You won't get any more annoying "Yes/No" boxes popped up, asking you to install a spyware ActiveX control (which can increasingly be found in pop-up ads!). In fact, Internet Explorer will never even download or run the spyware ActiveX control!

    In addition, SpywareBlaster can prevent many of these spyware ActiveX controls from running, even if they are already installed on your system.*

    The newest SpywareBlaster version can even block spyware/tracking cookies!
