  1. 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.
  2. On my system I currently have 11 hard drives ranging in size from 3TB to 6TB several of the drives are for backup only and I really don't want to scan them because the source for the content should be scanned. I have SUPERAntiSpywarePro 6.0.1210 installed. I clicked on Scheduled Scanning and created a scan however in the settings I don't see any option to select the drives/folders I want included in the scan. I'd like to create custom scans for my data drives where I would select one 6TB drive just to ensure the scan would complete in my off hours. In this case I'd have multiple schedule custom scan where each custom scan would be for different drives/folders
  3. Super bummer, hard to believe that this option is not available in the product today. Tks for the feedback.

  5. At this time I'm not sure what I'm getting prompted for but I don't want any prompts, e.g. I want SAS to apply any and all updates without my intervention. I realize this is not a feature in the current version but I hope that it is in the next update.
  6. Hopefully with v5 you can add the function to schedule scans. I've reviewed my logs and there does not seem to be any pattern as to when SAS performs a scan. Some of my systems are older systems and when the scan kick in the performance hit is very noticeable. I would much prefer to schedule the scans to take place when I'm most likely not using the system.
  7. Yes I saw and I use the current option to check for updates. It is the enhancement in v5 that I desire. I look forward to the enhancement, later this year (hopefully)!!!
  8. I'm running SAS Pro 4.45.1000 - I see an option to check for updates but I don't see an option to automatically apply the updates. I want SAS to automatically check for updates and if there is an update I want it automatically applied without prompting me. Is there such an option?
  9. For spyzooka, I've scanned the web, as stated above, and found mixed (negative/positive) comments. Thus I don't know who to believe and I trust the feedback of people posting in this forum much much much more. I'm running SAS Pro on my "current" (will be replaced in a couple of weeks) laptop and it has a serious performance issue. Currently I don't know if it is virus related, MS WinXP related, or hardware related or blot with all the applications I've installed on it. Thus I'm attempting to reach out the people I consider trusted experts. Sorry if this is the wrong forum.
  10. Any comments on SpyZooka? See http://www.spyzooka.com/. I've got the FireFox "web of trust" add-in installed and it flags the site as untrustworthy. With a little research (more required) I see both negative/positive comments, I don't know who to believe.
  11. What about Comodo BOClean ? see http://www.comodo.com/boclean/boclean.html
  12. What about Spybot-Search&Destroy? see http://www.safer-networking.org/en/spybotsd/index.html
  13. What about Avira AntiVir (see http://www.free-av.com/en/download/1/download_avira_antivir_personal__free_antivirus.html)
  14. I've been quickly going through the forum trying to come up with a list of protection applications I should be running. Currently I have a couple of WinXP Pro SP3 32 bit system, one WinVista Ultimate 32bit and next week I should have my new laptop which will have Vista 64 bit installed. I'd like to move all of my systems to 64 bit but some of the hardware has me stopped thus WinXP Pro 32 bit will be around until I can afford to replace them and I don't see this happening for at least a year or longer. With the arrival of my new laptop I'd like to protect myself as much as possible and I will admit I get very confused very quickly in this area. Just a couple of months ago I discovered SAS and purchased the Pro version. Viewing the forum I realize that SAS is NOT 64 bit but it is in the works (I'll beta if I can). Thus to start out I will be installing the current version of SAS on the Vista 64 bit PC. The big question is, what else do you recommend that I install. I see Malwarebites recommended in several post but beyond that I'm lost. I'll be running Outlook 2007 as my email client. Other than my personal home network and connecting into the internet at a hotel when I travel I don't think I will be connecting to other networks. I do download a LOT of stuff from newsgroups and a lot of this stuff contains viruses and when it is detected I just discard the stuff. I'd like to install a full suite of products to give me maximum protections. Suggestions would be appreciated.
  15. I've been running the pro version on WinXP SP3 and have NOT encountered any problems that I'm aware of.
