SuperAnti POPUP keeps appearing...

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

Dell Inspiron 570 PC

Windows7

Firefox/IE9

SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition

Every since a SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition product update I installed yesterday, anytime I click on the program to do anything (scan/update/etc.) I keep getting this popup in the lower right-hand corner of my screen:

What can I do to stop it? Since I had already updated the program, it is now a useless reminder.

I'm thinking of uninstalling and then reinstalling the program and perhaps that might fix it.

What do you recommend?

Thank you!

Gene

Thank you for your quick reply.

Yes, as I always do when opening SuperAnti, I first click on Update Now.

I just opend SuperAnti again, clicked on Update Now, and the three items indicate "Complete". And the popup appeared at the same time.

I'll follow your suggestion to reinstall using your supplied link.

I'll let you know the result and whether I still get the popup after that.

Thanks,

Gene

Clicking "Update Now" in the application and "Update Now" on the pop-up are different - in the application you are only checking for definition updates, that pop-up is notifying you of an application update. You can just click "Update Now" on the pop-up to update the application. Reinstalling is fine too.

You can just click "Update Now" on the pop-up to update the application.

Right, that's what I had been doing each time the popup appeared but, as I said, it was persistently continuing to pop up even after the application update.

Reinstalling is fine too

Which I've done.

Control Panel>Add/Remove SuperAntiSpyware

Reboot

Run CCleaner

Reinstalled per your link above

Clicked on "Check for Updates"

Ran a Quick Scan

10 items detected

Rebooted as requested

NO popups appeared

So, all is well.

Thank you for your quick attention and solution, it appears the issue has been resolved to my complete satisfaction.

Thank you also for providing such a terrific security program, one I have relied on for many years and will continue to use and recommend for years to come.

Best regards,

Gene

I am also having this problem.

I was on version .1142 and the pop up "a product update is available" i started the update it downloaded the update and looked like it was installing but it never confirmed after (yes i run it as admin).

After doing this a few times and getting nowhere i manually downloaded .1144 from the website and installed it, it installed fine but when ever i reboot or manually check for updates i keep getting the popup "a product update is available"

any idears?
