I'm using portable google chrome and portable firefox. Is there anyway that spyware blaster could detect my browser in order to protect it if im using a portable app.

  • Good question, I know that CCleaner needs modifications in order to scan them – Ivo Flipse Feb 25 '10 at 19:09

Here's a forum post on how to set it up for portable Firefox:

How to:

  1. Create the following folder:

    Documents and Settings(Your user)\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox

  2. Create new text file with the following:

    [General] StartWithLastProfile=1

    [Profile0] Name=Default IsRelative=0 Path=C:\Tamed\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile Default=1

    (Set the path to your portable version)

  3. Save text file as profiles.ini in the folder you created - D:\Documents and Settings(Your user)\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox

Now start SpyWareBlaster again

I guess SpyWareBlaster searches for profiles.ini files to see if it should scan it, so you can go and create a likewise file for portable Chrome.


Spyware blaster add Wanterfox

①Create folder

%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox C:\Users--user Name--\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

②New file


[General] StartWithLastProfile=1

[Profile0] Name=Default IsRelative=0 Path=C:\Users\ASUS\AppData\Local\Waterfox\Profiles\ubnhhn7t.default Default=1

[Profile2] Name=Default User IsRelative=0 Path=C:\Users\ASUS\AppData\Local\Waterfox\Profiles\cpbunvhk.68-edition-default
