  1. I've liked that new interface since it was improved. But I think the colors of the logo are too bright. Less glaring would make it look more mature. The current logo and red-yellow sweep are more for kids. Also, on YouTube SAS gets bad reviews for low detection rates. Some very well known anti-malware programs like Emsisoft besides their own scan engine -A-Squared- now also use Bitdefender's scan engine to improve their detection rate, and is doing very well. How they get away with it I don't know, but herdProtect is a free scanner that utilizes 68 scan engines. Because for some 15 years I've been using SAS Pro -lifetime license- I would like to see this program get better reviews. So it might not be a bad idea to partner with another anti-malware company. It would boost detection rates and then boost sales.
  2. Thank you. I found some more information on this issue here: "How to Stop Web Sites from Potentially Listening to Your Microphone" http://lifehacker.com/how-to-stop-web-sites-from-potentially-listening-to-you-1507692091 I surf sandboxed by default, and got this response on the Sandboxie forum: "There are no templates in Sandboxie that you can select that will allow Flash cookies to be saved outside of the sandbox. If you wanted to allow Flash cookies to be saved (and I know that you do not), you would have to go out of your way to create a setting that would allow it." http://forums.sandboxie.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=19850&p=104677&hilit=Adobe+Flash#p104677 So I'm not worried about this anymore.
  3. Hi! Recently I saw that websites can use our webcam and microphone without our knowledge. Adobe Flash Player settings seem to determine if we allow that or not. Here is where I found information on this: "Adobe Flash, The Spy in Your Computer – Part 1" http://www.welivesecurity.com/2010/10/06/adobe-flash-the-spy-in-your-computer-part-1/
  4. The background is light blue. I like that. And therefore the color of the big yellow letters and the sweep will always stand out, unless it would be another light blue of course... . I'm sure that's not in the plans. To me just less bright colors would be a plenty good improvement. Nothing else needed for that. And a more stylized icon. Like MBAM did. Emsisoft has a very nice interface too, but they are planning to change that to a Windows 8 design. I gave them a hard time over that. This is what they have in mind: http://blog.emsisoft.com/2014/06/04/biggest-facelift-in-7-years-new-interface-with-emsisoft-anti-malware-9-0-on-its-way/ I find it appalling. I commented on it here: http://support.emsisoft.com/topic/14191-looks-of-eam/ Oh well...
  5. PS: Looking at it again, not only does the design of the interface look very good to me -as I said before- I also like the colors. Except for the colors of the red traffic sign, the big letters SUPERAntiSpyware, and of the long sweep. Much darker red (wine) and dark amber (honey) would look great and .
  6. I've always liked SAS as a program, including the design and layout of the interface, and I have a lifetime pro license. But also to me some of the colors are way too bright. The name would also look a lot better if it were more like a rich amber -honey- color. Also, the man with hat and shades peeking through a "No Entry" sign;. it was very nice when it was designed for that time, but now it looks like an outdated comic strip icon. The "coca-cola" like wave is nice the way it is shaped, but the colors... please change them to more serious and less bright ones. One last thing: instead of a bug on the tray bar -which looks like one has been infected- it might be a good idea to change it into something looking more pleasant. Like a modernized version of the spy/no-entry icon. SAS deserves an upgrade in looks: respectable and serious. As the program is. Of course it's all a matter of taste, but I believe I'm not the only one who thinks an upgrade in looks is very welcome. (I just noticed that the icon in the tab I see above my search bar to me is looking good.)
  7. Hi! I've been happily utilizing SAS Pro for some years now. It is only recently that I tried the option of having a scheduled scan take place while not using my laptop and the latter being in sleepmode. I have the option "Wake computer from sleep to perform this task" checked, but so far it seems not to function. When I awaken my laptop after the set time a pop up appears saying that a scheduled scan was not performed while I was not logged in, asking if I want the scan to be performed now. How is this? (I'm using Windows 7.)
