  1. Hi Chim, Where did you hear that SAS 8 does not support WIndows XP? You should have no issues using SAS 8 on your XP machine. I can tell you informally that we have no plans to remove support for Windows XP -- as long as it is not problematic for us to continue to do so. We have great respect for Windows XP and our XP users, but we do realize that the number of active XP installs are shrinking every day. Given that XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, it is best for your safety and security to transition to a supported OS if at all possible. Thanks, Geoff

    Something added to startup?

    Hi Johan, sorry to hear about this. We are seeking some support on the screenshot upload issue right now . As to the persisting notification issue -- can you exit, uninstall, and reinstall the product using the latest download: http://cdn.superantispyware.com/downloads/SUPERAntiSpywarePro.exe and let us know if that fixes the problem? Thanks, Geoff

    Something added to startup?

    Yes, you're right Nightcap. The dev. team is looking at a better way to present the notification so that (presumably) users won't have to turn it off. I don't have any info on when that will happen -- just passing what I've heard along. Regards, Geoff

    Something added to startup?

    Hi Everybody, Sorry for the confusion. If you are having problems with this new feature, you can easily disable the notifications by unchecking the box "Notify me when a startup item is added" under the Real-Time Protection page. Our development team is currently investigating how to better present the information provided in the notifications. Note that all new installs of SAS 8 now have this option unchecked by default. Thanks, Geoff

    Sometimes it takes a bit for our CDN to get the update out. Be watching for "Database Version 13944" -- it's the latest and greatest.

    Windows 10 Creators Update

    Just curious how many of you have installed the Creators Update and what your thoughts are. I've installed it on two PCs and I haven't had any issues yet.

    (SOLVED) Surf Side Kick?

    Hi bluedeblue, Good question. Some of the feedback shown by the scanning progress in SAS does indeed show items that the scanner is looking for. It depends on the internal type of malware definition SAS uses. Anyway, your assessment is correct and there is nothing to be concerned about. Thanks, Geoff
  16. Hi Everybody, We are mostly done with the changes and upgrades started on the 9th of November. Thanks so much for your patience If you are still having problems resolving the website or any other technical concerns, please reach out to a staff member on the forum. Thanks, Geoff
  17. Hi All, Our Operations Team is planning a much needed website hardware and software upgrade on Tuesday, 11/08/2016, starting at 9PM PST. That's right - Election Day! It is expected to last at least a few hours. During that time the website, this forum, and the shopping cart will be largely unavailable. Thanks for your patience, folks! We'll keep you posted if anything changes. Regards, Geoff EDIT: We're moving the migration to Wednesday, 11/09/2016, starting at 9PM PST.
  18. FYI, I am relatively certain that we're getting an upgrade to the forum software in the near future. Stay tuned!

    Future Builds

    Hi GS, Great question. Like many software products, SUPERAntiSpyware has always had the ability to support custom modifications to its look-and-feel, feature set, and behavior. This customizability is reserved for special resellers and other partners who wish to distribute SUPERAntiSpyware with a particular branding/market in mind. NOTE: we have not used this capability often, and we do not currently have any resellers who use custom builds of SAS. The update at the end of February contained some enhancements to the system to facilitate the creation of future partner builds. Thanks, Geoff
  20. Awesome, glad to help circe801!
  21. Hi digitalninja, Not sure why you haven't gotten a response yet -- sorry about that! I'm sending you a PM with the contact info for our reseller and portable/tech manager. Thanks, Geoff

    Subscription rate.

    Hi Cranfield, Could you please submit a support ticket here: http://www.superantispyware.com/csrcreateticket.html Our Customer Service Rep. will be happy to assist you. Thanks, Geoff
  23. Hi circe801, The option to start the Free Edition with Windows is available so that: 1) the Home Page Protection feature starts operating when Windows starts 2) SAS is running and available to download new product binary updates (i.e. new versions of the program) 3) SAS is ready to perform an on-demand scan at a moment's notice ... in no particular order of importance. Of course, starting SUPERAntiSpyware with Windows is completely optional. Thanks, Geoff

    What version of Firefox do you have kenw? Thanks, Geoff
  25. Hi ecbritz, If I understand you correctly, SUPERAntiSpyware's realtime engine uses (basically) the same detection definitions as our on-demand scanner does. If an item is detected as malicious by realtime -- typically by an execution attempt or a file move/copy operation, etc., then it is prevented from executing and it is removed and quarantined. Removal of the executables causing the malicious network traffic (and thereby stopping the traffic) is similar to what you are talking about with MBAM, but it is not the same. Again, SAS does not currently block malicious websites or any other network traffic directly. Thanks, Geoff
