Home page change detected

66 posts in this topic

When I first start my computer I get this home page change detection warning.And there is nothing written in the home page after change of internet explorer.It did not do this before the update and I rarely use internet explorer.I prefer firefox I do try to block change and it keeps returning the warning.This is the only thing superantispyware does since the last update.

I am also having these issues too for the latest updated version;

OS;

Windows 7 Ultimate X64

I have also un installed and re install the program but still get the "Homepage Protection Window" appear after every restart of my PC but find it hard to get rid of it.

It also crashes and cannot open SAS via the little bug or the large desktop icon.

SAme with me. i've uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times with other problems, and now this one! I'm just about ready to junk the whole program! It seems to affect other things I do on the computer too! It seems to freeze up on more often now then it ever did before!

I too, am getting the "Home Page has changed" window after the last update, and it hangs and can't be closed. Also, SAS(paid) is then not starting up, when windows7 does.

- and I don't see that the Home Page actually changed-

Well I have to agree with you there Diff it is becoming a real pain, I have decided to Un Install it either until this issue has been resolved or I may wait till V5 is released and give that a try. :wink:

Yes but it is the fact it appears every time you restart your PC and then SAS crashes, you have to end the process and then restart the program every time........ it is a pain and who is to say that it is not affecting it's ability to do it's job properly.

I think I may have found the problem. If I choose to run SAS as adminstrator the program does not crash or request the homepage change.

Ummm yes.. but it is still a problem as you shouldn't need to do that every time you restart your system.

I am surprised there has been no one on to tell us it is in hand or even an acknowledge this thread.

SAS would not allow my PC to shut down.

I got the IE Explorer home page change message and SAS disabled my Razer Lachesis mouse....Nasty update

I already have mine checked to do that, and it still does it!

I have SAS Professional, I did the update

and have had the same problem with the home page as above posts, I am able to go in to scan site by using the bug in my taskbar I have been able to do updates and am currently at Core 7493 Trace 5305 Dated 30July 2011 at 8:17 P.M.

I have been able to run scans and only come up with tracking cookies that I am able to eliminate as usual.

My wife has the free version of SAS on her machine and did the update but has not had the homepage alert, not SAS not coming on.

I hope this helps, as I am sure the administrators are busy getting ready to launch 5.00 Version.

hello.

new here- actually just signed up just so i can say that im having the same problems as well.

except the only thing is, is that yeah when i first try to open sas the homepage change thing comes up (i try to x out of it but keeps popping back up) so i try to close out of sas entirely, it freezes for a sec then i can reopen sas to find it running normally w/o the message popping up. my main concern is that before this update my sas used to find even the simplest tracking cookie, but now when i run it (both quick and complete scan) it says nothing was found. i tried out this theory and intentionally went to a few sites that i knew would have cookies (mainly my local news websites) and still says found nothing... this kinda gets me worried. i mean if sas is skipping on even a simple tracking cookie what else is it passing on?

luckily i have a free subscription to norton so im good for now but it ends in 2 weeks. i only have norton for its internet security and it worked so well with sas...

I did manage to remedy my issues with SAS.After trying several uninstall tools I gave up on removing SAS.I then initiated a system restore.This worked and SAS ran fine as long as I did not update.I did a full scan and nothing was found.I then removed SAS and installed Ad-Aware and ran a full scan and got 5 hits on the scan.3 hits were quarantined.I believe this is the issue "Win32.ToolBarZugo[1497].

I think it's safe to say that it's a general issue - looks like most people using SAS are affected by it. Would be nice if the SAS team were to actually acknowledge the issue so that we know they're working to fix it.

In the meantime, I've uninstalled SAS completely. It was very annoying to have the 'homepage changed' pop-up come up each time I booted my PC and have the SAS process hinder shutting down the computer, because it had actually crashed/frozen.

I sincerely doubt no-one from the SAS team noticed these problems! They seem to be widespread, so I'd say at least a few people at SAS would have bumped into these issues themselves.

(by the way, I'm running a registered SAS on two Windows 7 x64 systems, both systems are affected)

Now, I don't get the homepage message, I'm able to shutdown the PC, but SAS doesn't work at all either from the taskbar, system tray bug, desktop icon or start menu, administrator or regular, or alternate start. Not good.

The issue appears to be part of the bing toolbar search engine.Generally when the update starts you get the option to install the toolbar or decline.The issue is in the update and it is corrupting windows explorer along with the SAS program.Hopefully SAS will send out a patch after the weekend is over.System restore will fix this issue.http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/products/features/system-restore

I'm having the home page change issue as well. But with mine when I open my browser it also opens up two additional browser windows with AntiSpyware product pages asking me to update to Professional. Anybody have this same issue?

I tried uninstalling thru windows and by redownloading the program and attempting to uninstall that way and neither was successful. Any suggestions for how to remedy this issue?

Edit: I've also found that the program will not run properly either. I just tried to run it to do a scan and it did nothing. When I clicked on the tray icon again it wouldn't even bring up any of the program options.

This latest update seems to have introduced some issues. The problem you describe is one of them, and it appears every time I reboot. About every other time, the bug in the tray does not respond when clicked on. Neither does the desktop icon. I'm not sure if my scans are actually running. Mt wife, who also uses the program (her own registered copy, of course) tells me she had to boot into safe mode to run a scan manually.

I really hope this will be fixed ASAP...

I'm having the same problems...everything is screwed up and I don't even know if the darn program is even working? This is what I get for buying the darn thing...nothing but trouble. I think SUPERAntiSpyware should be changed to CLARKKENTAntiWillNotWorkSpyware at least for now!
