I've installed Spyware Blaster on my Windows 8 computer using Chrome as my browser. An icon has been installed on my desktop but when I click it nothing happens. When I look in "uninstall programs" it does not appear. In Bellarc Advisor it is listed under Software

Hi and welcome

So I take it that it's not listed under Programs and Features?

What does the icon look like? is their a filename to it? Example: spywareblastersetup46

The icon is spyware Blaster's standard shortcut icon. When expanding the location info on the desktop icon it says "spyareblaster(C:)Programs File(x86)\Spyware Blaster)". You are correct in surmising that it is not listed under Programs

To expand on my problem with Spyware Blaster. When I said "nothing happens" when I click on SB not only does it not respond, it freezes my computer so that I can't start any program nor can I get out of Desktop. The only way out is to shut off computer manually with the On-Off switch.
I notice on another thread that it seams that BP does not support Chrome. I find this difficult to believe because I used it on my previous computer with Windows 7.

According to their website, Spyware Blaster is compatible with Windows 8. It doesn't sound like it installed properly though.
Since it's not listed in your Programs I suppose that rules out uninstalling it. You could try to re-download and install SpywareBlaster over-the-top of your old installation and see if that works.

Hi Cheeseball81 Thanks for taking an interest. The 1st thing I did was to try to install it over the original. Same result.

I noticed on March 1 they released a newer version of Spyware Blaster. Was your issue ever resolved?
