  1. I noticed it as well. Windows Security Center detects my avast! antivirus for antivirus, detects avast! and Windows Defender (off) for antispyware, and no mention of SUPERAntiSpyware. Not a problem with me since apparently I have an antispyware mentioned in the Security Center but just saying that apparently Security Center doesn't detect it on mine either. Also a Windows 7 user.
  2. At the shopping cart (https://www.superantispyware.com/shoppingcart.html) there's Professional there. Each license you purchase is for one year, but you can additionally make that Lifetime for an extra fee. Also, if you take the offer for an additional copy at a discounted price, you'll need to update the Lifetime quantity to 2 (or more depending on how many additional copies you want).
  3. You can't just choose one or the other. One is anti-spyware, one is anti-malware. Both are bad for your computer, both are quite easy to get nowadays, both need protection against. You need both SAS and MAB. I run both just fine. EDIT: Sorry, I read your post wrong. Which to buy? Well, SAS gives a lot without real-time already and Malwarebytes' AntiMalware can stop more threatening threats. But it's a higher chance of getting spyware in multiple instances than getting malware in multiple instances, so...it really depends. I would get both, but for now, I suggest buying MAM, since malware and malicious IP threats, although rare, are very threatening.
  4. Interesting...for a kick I uninstalled Pro Trial and installed Free. I set a custom scan for the registry, memory, and C:\Windows\. The scan completed with no issues; apparently the Pro Trial version had a problem.
  5. Running SUPERAntiSpyware Professional. What else would I be doing? :P

  6. If your friend tried to put a crack, uninstall SAS. That should rid the crack, then reinstall SAS, then try again.
  7. Fortunately, the scan got past C:\Windows\_default.pif. Unfortunately, the scan NOW gets stuck on C:\Windows\äõv. I have the strangest feeling that the scan always gets stuck on the C:\Windows folder, not including subfolders...
  8. Well, I'm not uninstalling the antivirus. xDI went into Safe Mode and did the scan, but same result, C:\Windows\_default.pif stopped the scan.
  9. I'm running the trial version of SuperAntiSpyware Professional after hearing good things about it. I used the free version on a desktop that the rest of my family uses and it found at least a hundred traces of spyware that Spybot - Search and Destroy failed to recognize. Anyway, the reason I'm here is because my laptop seems to be the one that has a problem with the full scan. The scan would hang on the same file C:\Windows\_default.pif. I have Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and avast! at the same time. Neither has the problem. I used to have ZoneAlarm Firewall too, but when I searched on Google, ZA seemed to have the _default.pif issue connected to it. Uninstalled ZoneAlarm, same thing still happens. I can't even cancel the scan - I have to use Task Manager. I really don't want to go back to Spybot after seeing this thing work well on my desktop. Help please?
