SUPERsupport posted a topic in SUPERAntiSpyware BlogsI thought Spyware and Viruses are the same thing? A virus is malicious code that copies itself over and over in order to do damage to your computers data while Spyware is an umbrella term used to describe a variety of threats such as Trojans, Ransomware, Keyloggers, Cookies, Worms, etc that may do damage to your PC and/or privacy but do not have the intention of totally destroying your computers data and system unlike a virus. So your telling me I need an Anti-Virus AND an Anti-Spyware? Strictly speaking, SUPERAntiSpyware© is not designed to be Anti-Virus software. We target Spyware, a focus that allows us to respond quickly to the ever-growing groups of hostile software we address, with new definitions released multiple times a day, and concentrate on the technology that targets the most common threats in the wild. There are a lot of things that are often called viruses (many trojans, worms, and so on) that SUPERAntiSpyware© will remove, but it won’t remove true viruses such as boot-sector viruses. No one security tool can catch everything out there and protect you, which is why we recommend a layered approach. We recommend if you use an Anti-Virus, you supplement it with SUPERAntiSpyware© and if you only use SUPERAntiSpyware© alone, consider getting an Anti-Virus. SUPERAntiSpyware© has been designed to be compatible with popular Anti-Virus applications such as McAfee, Symantec(Norton), Kaspersky, Bitdefender, ESET NOD32, AVG, Avast, Panda, Avira, and so on.
I recently switch my computers security suite to Bitdefender Total Security 2016, I immediately had issues with it and some minor system glitches, since I have been using super antispyware for 4 years now but with other security suites I knew it had to be bitdefender so after talking with bitdefender support techs and others I had to remove superantispyware and I was then able to repair bitdefender and all is working fine. is there any known issues or was superantispyware tested with bitdefender because now I have a lifetime key that I am unable to use unless you have a work around for this issue or know what the compatibility issue is.
I have done all that I can think of to remedy the situation safely. But to no avail. Some have been removed in safe mode and normal mode quick scan and online scans. However, everytime I go to do a full scan or critical scan. I get the BSOD. It happens when it gets to the ControlSet2/Enum directory. It can easily be a registry issue and/or virus/malware. Any ideas? System is Windows XP Home Edition.
