    Thanks for these instructions I am hoping they will work for me! However I have a newer version of the above called Spyware Guard 2009. Other than that it looks the same.

    Will the instructions above work for Spyware Guard 2009 as well? I wondered if the detailed DLLs and registry keys would be the same?


    Also, excuse my ignorance, but what's the best way to backup the pc before I start? I haven't done this before!
