Javacool Software Releases Free SpywareBlaster® 4.6

Popular Protection Software Now With Enhanced "Layered Defense" to Help Users Secure Browser & Plugins

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwire - Mar 14, 2012) - The Web's best spyware and malware prevention application just got even better.

Software publisher Javacool Software LLC ( said today that it is now offering free downloads of its newly released version 4.6 of its popular SpywareBlaster® protection program.

Launched in 2002, Javacool Software's programs have been downloaded more than 60 million times by users worldwide. The company offers a range of free privacy and security software programs for home and small business computer users, along with enhanced services for enterprises and networks.

SpywareBlaster protects against stealth downloading of spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers and other unwanted and potentially dangerous software. And unlike other programs, the performance-friendly SpywareBlaster does not remain running in the background, avoiding drags on a PC's operation.

Version 4.6 of SpywareBlaster adds new functionality to the software, enhancing its ability to work seamlessly with a user's Web browser and browser plugins. The new version also features improved Windows 7 support, faster updating worldwide, interface improvements and numerous other enhancements.

SpywareBlaster coexists with other security software to provide a "layered defense" against multiple threats. It prevents the installation of ActiveX-based spyware and other dangerous programs, blocks spying and tracking via cookies, and restricts the actions of potentially threatening Web sites.

SpywareBlaster supports a multitude of browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Netscape, Seamonkey, Pale Moon, K-Meleon and browsers that use the IE engine such as the AOL web browser, Avant Browser, Slim Browser, Maxthon (formerly MyIE2), Crazy Browser and GreenBrowser.

Javacool Software offers a SpywareBlaster AutoUpdate service to download new versions when they become available, with automatic database updates, easy multi-user coverage and technical support.

Unlike other subscription or free anti-spyware and anti-malware software, SpywareBlaster focuses on prevention. Notes respected tech blogger Bill Mullins in his recent review of version 4.6, "If there's a lesson than an average Internet user needs to be reminded of until it becomes second nature it's this -- 'prevention is worth a pound of cure.'"
