  1. Gabe, Have done that and have a report that was blocked by WinPrivacy and now am attaching it to this message. They gave me a file SUPERSysteminspector to run and took me a bit of time to figure-out how to stop Avast! from blocking it every time the attempt was made to get it to run. Seems it is TOO large, 500K, will attempt to use 7zip to compress. Will return later Looks like it is a compressed file and will not zip any farther. Now what:? e-mailed the file and it is on it's way.
  2. Gabe Burch, Have been trying to logon to post for about the last hour or more. All that could be seen were blank white pages except for the Index area. Below is a message attempted to send in reply which came back undeliverable: " Thank you for this informaton, but; checking the Quarantine under SysTools there is NOTHING listed plus the check box at the bottom is set to your default of thirty (30) days have changed to 130 days. Those files in my post were discovered on this system on 06/24/2016 and nothing found about them as you mentioned in your message. The only place showing is under SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Logs cannot find any way of displaying what is within. Have seven (7) discovered on 07/03/2016 and nineteen (19) on 06/24/2016 which are those of the report posted in the forums. With nothing showing under System Tools and Program Settings, except what is mentioned above. I have saved a copy of a quarantine file, 'quarantine.db' from 06/24/2016 159KB in a special folder if you would like for me to send it as an attachment. Also have WINSXS folder as Excluded in Scanner Options. Please understand, this is not a normal newbie am a very curious animal and do my own investigatons. Learning what is possible even going against Micro(ยต)soft's wishes to keep my system as protected as possible, even to the point of going against so called Experts, MSVP, Forum, GEEKS, et ceteras . . . Have even run two (2) fire walls, two (2) antivirus monitors and scanners, with up to four (4) adware, spyware, malware, et ceteras . . . all at the same time without the difficulties predicted. Have surfed the net since about 1974 using Unix software at DOS CMD Line before WWW and Windows were ever implemented. I go against the grain . . because it is MY system to maintain TIA, CU L8R, 'd' or 'e' "Lone Wanderer" P.S. I opened the Submit Malware Samples clicking on the "+" sign and selecting the file saved in a special folder as mentioned above and (sent) was displayed on that entry. Do not know where it was sent, if you wish me to attach it here let me know. Thank you for reading this rambling mess 'd' "LONE Wanderer"
  3. Greetings from the Great Country of TEXAS, Due to my own error and misunderstanding of what was discovered and had it removed. Did some investigating into what had been removed and discovered the "RUIFLTR.SYS, RUINETF.SYS, NETFILTER2.SYS" files plus about sixteen (16) registry entries that were placed there by Microsoft by an update that was done on 06/10/2009. Below find some information about that install and my EditPad Lite v7 does not display some characters: [bracketed data is from me] [below dated 06/10/2009] C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-t..ied-chinese-quanpin_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_f79af98021986eab [below "?" are because cannot be displayed as it is in Simple Chinese] RUI"="?"

The above information is found on two (2) of my computers both x64 systems one system is x32 and does not have the above data entries. Just one question, how may I reinstall those two (2) DotSYS files plus the Reg entries?
  4. SUGGESTED FEATURE-- PROGRESS BAR

    Greetings from the GREAT Country of TEXAS, I too support this feature along with maybe Green of the Icon in the System Tray or/and Status Bar for SAS's scan, small % numbers could be added the need for % sign is superfluous. As other scanners do using a small revolving circle on the Tray Icon while scan is in operation. SAS gives a count of total files scanned along with different categories, if scans run daily or often there could be very small changes in this so the % will not change but very small amount. This could be the reference used if recorded in scan records. Most people are using WebMail therefore email will have little effect on number of files on their system. Also if doing a regular cleanup of the system will still make little changes in total count, only a reference is needed as a basic point to start with.
  5. DANGEROUS Signature PROBLEM

    "GS," If I may chime in here and give maybe what is being stated a little differently. It sounds to me that if some malware were to get into that particular file in SAS and make or remove said information, on any individuals computer, that SAS would not be able to detect any infections. MY question would be, "does SAS use any sort of 'Self Protection' to prevent any messing with any of SAS' software?"
  6. "GuiltySpark," MY issue has been resolved by SUPERAntiSpyware Customer Service by informing me it had to be a FIREWALL issue, I use Microsoft FIREWALL and checked. Listed 'SUPERAntiSpyware.exe' and just below that entry was "UPDATE" which I had 'assumed' was for 'SUPERAntiSpyware,' "WRONG" after checking it was for some software that had been removed. Made the CHANGE and now it works just fine. The following is my reply to them plus clicked the RadioButton to close that TICKET! "Excuse me, PLEASE? SUPERAntiSpyware Customer Service, Within my Windows FireWall there was a listing for SUPERAntiSpyware.exe AND just below that was UPDATE without an indication as to what was to be updated, I assumed it was SUPERAntiSpyware. Checked and it was for a program that had been removed. Situation has been updated to the correct settings. Sorry to have bothered you with an issue of my own, as that word spells "ass u me", do not need any HELP to do said to myself, THANK YOU VERY MUCHLY for correcting my problem for me . . TIA CU L8R, 'd' (LxCi)"
  7. GuiltySpark, With this being Sunday have not had an update today, may need to wait until tomorrow, Monday to collect this information. NO, have not heard any thing, er, read any message from them except the acknowledgement of the receipt of my request yesterday. All security software on my system has been here for a number of years working just fine together with SAS Free, this actually started back before Thanks Giving last year. Not very often by Christmas time was getting to be a hassle, I do some troubleshooting of computers for friends and have been rather busy on the run. Will get to this ASAP! Thank you for your information and a thank you to the Support Team for at least looking into my issue . . Later . . .
  8. GuiltySpark, Do NOT know because it is not giving any errors. Just failures many times . . at it stands at this time telling me there is NOT an update available. Did use the link you had so graciously provided and did my update that way. AND where it always ran three (3) times with failures before STOPPING it is now doing only two (2). IF you like will take a screen-shot the next update. Let me know, please or will not do this . .
  9. "GuiltySparks," Just managed to get this placed in the support section, assigned CSR00137296 and it is now only doing two (2) failures instead of the three (3). Do not recall if posing the mirror site, (Mirror 1) now we will see what happens. Thank you so very much for your attempt to provide some assistance . . This Morning alone there have been twelve (12) failures before completion, this evening there were eight ( failures before completing. Neglected to put this in earlier.
  10. " GuiltySpark," This is still going on with this issue, after nine (9) attempts on number ten (10) it finally completed. Six (6) were done through the SAS program without any error report just FAILURE shown. All nine (9) were at the 99% point when falures occurred. Did three (3) failures with the link you provided that FAILED with error code "ID 021" if that can be of any assistance. WIth file sizes of 15204kb twice (2) one at 15202kb then completed one file size of 15205kb. That is all that I can provide except it has happened many times over the last several days as I keep attempting to complete the download for updates. Thank you for reading my message . .
  11. The above post, Edited by me to include the only file within the SuperAntiSpyware ProgramData folder using the "Full Editor" and got a message that FLashPlayer was busy, I had not started that file then the full editor came up and attached that file with the long title ending in .SDB and do not see an attachment in my message. There are some very strange things occurring here this morning.
  12. Greetings from the GREAT country of TEXAS, Have the latest update of SAS done just yesterday and have six (6) Failures of updating the database. One download the other day errored out from link given me by "Guilty Sparks" later worked just fine. Will attempt the link from "GS" after this post. Just completed the download from the link given by "GS" that errored out, see below: " The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application even log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail." I do not have that tool "sxstrace.exe" on my system, where might I fine a copy? The only log found in C:\ProgramData\SuperAntiSpyware\AppLogs for this date is 'SUPERANTISPYWARE-1-28-2015( 7-3-20 ).SDB' and cannot read what is within there. It is only a 15KB file, should I attach here?
  13. "GS," This is getting to be a pain and very strange. The last 3-4 days have had this error of the Mirror-1 several times AND the link you provided worked the first time just fine the next 2 or 3 presented Corrupted files when clicking the executable and required another download. This morn the regular update to Mirror-1 crashed, used the link by Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V to my browser and the download was a very strange file title woithout an extension and ZERO size. Returned here and clicked on the link and the file was downloaded agin and when clicking on the executable, agin, corrupted file as reported by Windows. Am about to attempt that one more time when finished with this. NOT complaining, just reporting what is happening from this side. Also still have the last corrupted file here it anyone there would like me to send it, it is available yet. Thank you for reading my post . . .
  14. Was in a hurry that day and did not read over what was posted, as you can tell my fingers are not very automatic, they have a mind of their own. I meant to say, " the failures are automatically restarted at least three (3) times before the failure is stopped." That day it happened about four (4) or five (5) times of the three automatic reattempts. Will save that link for future issues. It may do just that about the selecting the nearest Mirror, just that when it gets SUPER busy, many updates underway for that one server it should be able to transfer to the next nearest. Thank YOU so very much for at least giving me that link for manual downloads . .
  15. If I may? Add some to this issue, I am on High Speed and have had this issue off and one for the last week or two. Now today it has come up again, and gets all the way to 99% and fails, not just once but three (3) times and needs to be restarted with Mirror 1. Is there a method to access a different Mirror when this starts? If so, please explain how to do this . .
