ID-Blaster Plus – added 11/7/2006

In Windows, many applications have something called a “product ID number”, a “GUID” or a “Unique ID number”. This number may be the same throughout Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player – even the operating system itself. Since this number nevers changes, it would be the perfect way a malicious person or even an advertising company could track your habits – perhaps through a malicious website ActiveX control, or Java applet. ID-Blaster Plus destroys tracking tactics by randomizing GUID/Unique ID numbers found on your computer.
