  1. IMPORTANT UPDATE Problem: SAS pro hangs (and shuts down SAS) on VirusTrigger 2.1.INK Follow this procedure for a work around. Close SAS pro Click Start>All Programs>SuperAntiSpyware>SUPERAntiSpyware Alternate Start This will prompt you to RUNSAS.EXE SAS Pro starts normally and appears normal. Now perform your scan. If you do not have RUNSAS.EXE you can locate it here. https://www.superantispyware.com/supportfaqdisplay.html?faq=71 I have scanned as Quick Scan and Complete Scan and neither hung on VirusTrigger 2.1.INK I was not able to update the definitions but you can do this with your startup SAS pro. The scans that I performed had current definitions installed. EDITED: SAS CSR contacted me to say that they are working on a permanent fix.
  2. This very same thing is happening to me. I uninstalled SAS pro and reinstalled and did no definitions update. Immediately ran a scan with no problem. It asked for a reboot and upon the reboot SAS pro automatically updated to the current definitions. Ran the scan again and this time it hung on VirusTrigger2.1.lnk. How was it that my definitions updated when I do not have them checked to update? I can limp my SAS pro along until a fix arrives but once the first definitions update occurs I am done.
  3. I am getting frustrated with Virus Trigger 2.1.ink as I have been working hours trying to remove this thing. I am using SAS PRO V4.41.1000 and performed the uninstall procedure of the previous version. Its located in folder C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch. I went as far as deleting the Quick Launch folder but Superantispyware still hangs up on it when doing a scan and hangs at the same location. I can't see how this is possible. I even went as far as creating a new user account and it showed up again under the new user name. I'm using a new ASUS laptop and Virus Trigger 2.1.ink showed up on my first scan and after very little laptop activity. I have also tried Malwarebytes and Spybot S&D which were not able to find this file. The file does not exist!!! I have hidden files turned on and amazingly after deleting Quick Launch folder and then checking properties in the Microsoft folder it shows 0 files and 0 files. I even performed a "custom scan" and did not include the AppData folder and still it hangs in the same location shown above. Upon receipt of the laptop the first thing I did was a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I wonder if Virus Trigger was there from the beginning as one of the numerous bloatware that ASUS installs. Any suggestions on removing Virus Trigger 2.1.ink? I just want to perform a scan without SAS hanging on it. How about a fix? Thanks, Kevin
