  1. Is there a way to start scheduled scans minimized?
  2. For months I have noticed that after initially behaving as expected during the day I find right clicking the system tray icon gets me nothing. The only signs of life is by hovering over the system tray icon displays the version info but the program menu fails to display. To do a manual scan I end up launching the product a second time. This means that to either scan or update manually I must go through hoops or if I have Windows Explorer open, quite often the case, I can right click on a file or a folder, etc. and scan. I wish the system tray icon actually responded all of the time like the rest of my items since it is disconcerting and prompts questions as to what other portions of SAS 5.6 isn't working. Before I uninstall and reinstall again I'd appreciate some insight into this behavior. Database Version 10610 - 07-14-2013 Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit Service Pack 2 4 gig memory Jester

    SAS 5.5 1020 Hangs

    I've noticed that when I right click the tray icon I no longer seem to get a response when I click or right click. I end up using Task Manager to kill the app then I relaunch and am able to check for updates or launch a scan. I don't know how long this has been the case but I recall having this situation a few years ago and it seemed to be fixed by installing a pre-lease version. Has anyone else noticed the need to shutdown SAS and relaunch to get out of what I am calling the frozen state? Thanks, D
  4. Since installing the pre-release version 5.x my machine has shutdown each time, no issues. As a reminder, I'm running Vista Home Premium 64 bit. Jester
  5. Version 5.0.1104 is shutting down normally, both when a "restart" or a "shutdown" is selected. Thanks, dgpile
  6. I answered backwards. No, there is no check mark for scan at shutdown. I am uninstalling and reinstalling 5.0.1104 and will test through the day.
  7. The following quote was a response to your earlier suggestion to install version 5. "Same result. I keep getting told that "SuperAntispywar" (either Vista 64 bit Home Premium truncates the program name on the shutdown screen or there is a typo) is running and do I want to continue or cancel. Like the earlier poster I have to manually exit your application prior to a shutdown or else force the shutdown when I get the OS shutdown message about running programs." So when I wrote the above it was to tell you that version 5 behaves no differently and I have to manually shutdown Superantispyware before shutting down Windows OR I have to tell Windows to shutdown despite the warning notice telling me that Superantispyware is preventing a proper windows shutdown. Please post the results of your ongoing research into this issue. dgpile
  8. Same result. I keep getting told that "SuperAntispywar" (either Vista 64 bit Home Premium truncates the program name on the shutdown screen or there is a typo) is running and do I want to continue or cancel. Like the earlier poster I have to manually exit your application prior to a shutdown or else force the shutdown when I get the OS shutdown message about running programs. dgpile
  9. Already at 4.55 but will uninstall, then reinstall. dgpile
  10. After the last EXE update more often than not Windows hangs after displaying SuperAntiSpyware as the application that is preventing a shutdown. Perhaps 1/3 of the time this occurs I wait and the system continues on and shuts down. More often the system remains in this state unless I select Cancel at which time I initiate another shutdown and the laptop completes the shutdown without further messages. Task Manager shows no other apps running at the time. Actually, it shows no apps running so SAS Core Service appears to be the only active source of the hang up. I have uninstalled, reinstalled without substantial difference. Anyone else see this behavior? Thanks, Jester
