Freeze during scan

12 posts in this topic

I have run into a problem. I have never had this problem before until recent. While running a Superantispyware (Free Edition) scan the scan freezes. After that the program won't respond, nor will anything else really. It happens when the scan gets to the Windows files. Any ideas?

Hello.

What version of SAS are you using (core/trace)? Try again with the latest core and trace files.

If the issue persists, please also post the version of Windows and if it's 32 bit or 64 bit.

Core : 4861 Trace : 2673 (The most current I think)

Windows is Vista 32 bit.

Please try the following:

1) Go into SAS's Preferences>Scanning Control.

2) Uncheck "Use Direct Disk Access".

3) Uncheck "Use Kernal Direct File Access".

Now try the scan.

If the scan still locks up, recheck those options, and post your antivirus and any other antispyware applications that you have installed.

Tried all that. Still freezes. I used to have Avast Free Edition and now I have Microsoft Security Essentials. It froze with both of them installed. It seems to freeze while scanning my Windows files and this last time it froze when scanning a file named ndismigplugin.dll. By the way.. sometimes, the last time for example.. the whole PC froze. Not just SAS.
