  3. No, SUPERAntiSpyware is not an unsolicited e-mail (UCE) filter. Please note that technically, the term spam refers to unwanted e-mail only. Spam is not the same as malware, spyware, adware, trojans, etc.
  4. I always delete the history so I don't get recommendations as they usually involve stuff I have no interest in.
  5. That's a fantastic site you have there. I am signing up Haha, think I have to agree with you on the name change, good call! (Not that it's a bad name but I'd be expecting something other than a computer site to pop up!) I never used too, but I have been finding myself using it far more recently! (Because it suggests videos based on the likes) Hmm, yeah. Maybe you're right about the rating system. Might leave that out.
  6. I've never been a fan of rating systems for the very reason you mention but also because it reminds me of BadgerFace (social Networking site, I changed the name because I just can't stand it, lol Social networking, nobody knows anyone and they claim to have friends lol). A rating system won't bring people in though, do you always use the Like button on YT? Expect it to take a long time it just doesn't happen over night. For example here's a site myself and a few friends set up tgigeeks.boards.net/ I even tried to create a gimmick of sorts (which I'm still working on when I get the chance) tgigeeks.boards.net/thread/1400/new-atlemos-13-alpha but everything takes time so pace yourself, you're in for a long ride.
  7. Hey Guilty, Yeah, I'm proceeding with this as more of a hobby than a real buisiness. You're defiantly right about gimmicks, I will have to do a bit of brain storming for one of my own!I guess there are websites out there that review for free? I will look into that. Some great advice - thank you! I Was thinking maybe a 'Tutorial Rating' for the quality of the tutorial written. But that does bring a risk of people just down voting it to be spiteful, especially at the beginning when one vote would be a lot of influence on the result.
  8. Starting a forum can take what seems forever to get going, if you have some sort of gimmick to attract people (your own software and Tut's for such) it can help especially if that software is forwarded to others to test and advertise via reviews. The mainstay of having a decent site however is of course traffic. The more members you can get on board the better your chances, this in itself is difficult unless the content is above others. If you want a hobby then by all means give it a go and try to advertise (without spamming) as much as you can all over, internet, word of mouth, nationwide. Although there is no guarantee of gaining members, either you get lucky or you don't.
  9. Hey all. Just a little background info: I have been running a small website for a couple of months, and saw very little activity. I offered free computer advice and fixes etc. I also wrote a few tutorials on how to fix virus, software, and hardware related issues etc. Also a few other random articles related to computers. No one really seemed interested in the site unfortunately, so I removed it. I really would like to set up a free service for people, but it never seems to take off. I have started another site, with a similar theme but am lost as what to post on it, or whether it's even worth the effort. No one found the old site, no one seemed interested in the fix's posted there. This is probably because of all the over well known computer support sites that already exist drawing traffic etc. So onto the point of this post. I was wondering if I could ask what this community might like to see from a site such as this? Would you like A remote support service? A forum? No forum just one page with a list of tutorials? Both? And lastly and most importantly, is it even worth setting a website like this up? Any thoughts or ideas posted are welcome, and much appreciated! Cheers , Owl.

  11. Hello lascetic, Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I have adjusted the definition database and these files should no longer be detected as of database version 13474, which will be released shortly. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns, Gabe
  12. Both files are detected as PUP.InstallCore/Variant. They are both windows media player add-ons. I have used SAS inbuilt function to report them, too. https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/0427d92a2dd05aa3bb0bd0d6e7611e2ed1e2454dedb7f15c8556705f3cfc4ea3/analysis/1489581960/ https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/f9fa370e0b9b95442544fe485bed37a9538fb85c1938ec6c5f1422087aead35b/analysis/1489582144/
  13. Hello! Thank you for the suggestion, I have forwarded this forum post onto our head of development.
  14. After SAS scans my system it presents me with a list of threats (see the image). In this window I have the option to either search google or mark it as good or delete the object. Rather than just deleting the object I might desire to delete other files in the folder and possible delete the folder. Thus I'd like to see an additional option that would allow me to open the folder containing the object or the option to copy the path to my clipboard and then I could paste the path in my file manager application and open the folder for inspection.

  16. Disconnect all drives except the one with the OS and try to install.
  17. Hi!, Im trying to install latest version after uninstalling the previous one. When i try to select the destination folder and i click the browse button, the browser windows comes up, but i can only see and choose the Desktop and the User Folder, no one of my drives are showed, and i dont know why. Probably is not a SAS problem but mine, but i dont know the reason, my user has administrator rights. Any idea? Has someone reported something similar? can i be infected and something is blockin' SAS installation? Any help would be apreciated.
  18. Haha, thanks! Me either.
  19. Erm, I have no idea what it is or whats happenning but well done for trying
  20. Sorry.
  21. Ok thanks! Looks like safe mode is the only solution here, until you guys find a way to fix it up! You can close the thread now if you want. ☺
  22. “The HoeflerText Font Wasn’t Found” Google Chrome Malware Scam – What it is and how to avoid it! You are browsing the web and accidentally land on a website with nonsensical characters instead of letters and you receive a prompt to download a missing font in order to read the website. You are told in order to fix the error and display the text, you have to update the “Chrome Font Pack”. Whatever you do, please do not click that blue Update button! Fake Google Chrome Prompt asking you to install the malware It is a scam designed to trick users into installing malware onto their systems. This malware is ranging from Ransomware, to Trojans, to various adware bundles. How to avoid it The fake dialogue box informing you that the “The HoeflerText Font Wasn’t Found” will claim you are using Chrome version 53 even if you are not using that version, which tells you something isn’t right and that the prompt you are seeing is fake. Make sure you are using the latest version of Google Chrome which you can download by clicking here Make sure you are also using the latest version of SUPERAntiSpyware with Real-Time Protection enabled, a feature only available for SUPERAntiSpyware Professional users.
  23. No sarcasm, just surprised they would use Xvirus engine over a long term tried and trusted one. Not to mention Xvirus isn't actually an Antivirus, interesting to see if Santos builds it on C++ instead of .NET Framework he said he was looking into that and creating a portable version so time will tell.
  24. Hey, easy on the sarcasm.
  25. Mouse over the link and see what the link address actually consists of, these are usually a completely different address. Check the email headers to see where they spawned from.
  26. Tax Season is here – Watch out for Identity Stealing Spyware! Keep your personal information safe this tax season by doing a Free scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition We want to remind everyone that tax season is the time of increased attacks from spyware, various methods of phishing , and scams.

Do you have any security recommendations that help you stay safe during the tax season? Feel free to leave a comment below! -SUPERAntiSpyware Team
  27. Hi, ok thanks I have opened a support ticket with them - hopefully this issue gets resolved so I may find out what is causing it and get rid of it if it is actual malware force crashing SUPERAntiSpyware from scanning after 6 hrs straight..... Or it might just be a bug that your scanner can't handle more than 1 million files? Or at least a very large amount of files as my scan settings are set to be as thorough as possible, ie do NOT skip files larger than 4MB, do NOT skip non executable files as examples..... I have linked them to this thread so they will know what I'm talking about and who I am...hehee... Thanks!
